10% from your purchase goes directly towards helping sustain the Brazilian Amazon rainforest, its people, traditions and biodiversity.
In the rich biodiversity of the Amazon rainforest shamanic traditions honour the myriad of vines, plants and flowers that grow there. The indigenous population and their master healers believe that the plants speak to those with the gifts of expanded senses and perception. The plants are considered sacred and are revered for the wisdom and healing properties.
We celebrate this incredible heritage through the form of a beautiful woman, the symbol of ‘mother,’ who has been adorned with master and medicinal plants of the Amazon. ‘Medicina,’embraces the wonder of nature, the beauty of the feminine and honors the power of plants to both heal and expand our consciousness. Upon her shoulder are the root and leaves of the Mother of all medicine, on her neck are the flowers and leaves of the Mapacho plant. On her right shoulder is the pretty Chiric Sanango flower. And in her hair are the magnificent Achiote flowers of the Bixa Orellana plant.
Each, ‘Medicina del Amazonas’ t-shirt is a one off. As explained in the product description the hair was created as the screen printer pulled the green and blue ink across the T-shirt by the squeegee. Where those inks merged together created the green-blue section of her hair. This can only be done 15 times before the inks become too mixed at which point the screens need to be cleaned and the process started again. Each design therefore varies slightly and is totally unique!
Organic cotton requires a little more care than regular pesticide filled cotton and therefore needs to be washed on a cool cycle inside out. Organic cotton should never see the inside of your tumble dryer, air drying is best! Never iron directly onto the hand screen printed graphics – iron the garment inside out or use a clean cloth as a barrier.
