Call of the Brave

Description

Call of the Brave is a crowdfunding platform for T-shirt designs. If a design is successfully backed the design is screen printed on either organic cotton, recycled polycotton (cotton offcuts mixed with recycled plastic bottles), or bamboo, and sent out to the backers. When a new T-shirt is sent out we ask for an old one in return - customers are incentivised by paying a deposit on the packaging - any old shirts we get back are upcycled into new things which we sell for charity.
