Shirts for Sale!

I am excited to announce that you can get your very own Africa Hope series shirt THIS WEEKEND!  My amazing sister-in-law Andrea(who I have mentioned before here) has been hard at work making t-shirts to sell for us!  You can buy them THIS WEEKEND at the Loveless Spring Arts Festival.  The festival will be held at the famous Loveless Cafe from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  So, come out and support all of the artists and also buy a shirt!

Here are just a few pictures of the beautiful shirts.  Each shirt is hand dyed and the logo is screenprinted by hand onto the tee.  So, as you can see they are a labor of love and the results are amazing! There are lots of other colors as well, so come check them out!

This picture is MY FAVORITE because the adorable model happens to be my nephew Jack!

Most of the t-shirt designs contains ADINKRA SYMBOLS, which are part of an African textile tradition that began in the 16th century. Stamped or printed onto cloth, each symbol has a its own name and unique meaning. Adinkra symbols communicate words of wisdom or praises based on inspirational proverbs, historical events, human attitudes and behaviors, social values, or religious beliefs.

ONYANKOPON ADOM NTI BIRIBIARA BEYE YIE-"By God's grace, all will be well."  Symbol of hope, providence, faith.
 NSOROMMA-"Child of the heavens"-Symbol of guardianship; reminder that God is the Father and watches over all people

My sister-in-law is so generously donating the money from the sales from these amazing shirts to help us bring her nephew home!  So come to the Loveless Cafe on Saturday so you can snag yours before we're out!
