Story of African Women

Story of African Women


On Women’s Day in Cameroon there is a magnificent march led by the First Lady who trails kaleidoscopic crowds in chant.  Everyone wears dresses made from the government's official Women’s Day Fabric, the price of which escalates rapidly as the holiday approaches. The demand for this low quality cloth is so fierce that diminishing supply leads to divorce. Some Cameroonians are speaking out against this commercialism, pointing out that it distracts from the true purpose. To misquote Elliot: “good businesses endorse movements, great businesses join them.”

T-shirts are screen printed and there may be some variation in color and design from pictured, particularly in paint splatter. Sizing is unisex.

The designs are created and printed by Ugandan artist Destreet of the Destreet Art Foundation.
