In my blog of last week
I announced some new clothing around the corner.
Lets start with two fundraising projects.
The MIN.D fundraiser t-shirt and sweatshirt
are made out of 100% organic cotton and were both designed by Italian graffiti artist Cento Canesio (www.canesio.com
). You might remember him from our limited U.P.P.E.R edition
a while ago.
Open covers all the costs, 100% of what you pay will go to Cento's chosen charity: Creamos Bolivia (www.creamosbolivia.org
). This is a NGO established in order to provide relief for indigenous children in need.
Betty Designs Women's fundraiser jersey and bib shorts.
Betty Designs (www.bettydesigns.com) made the design for both of those items featuring their "badass is beautiful" philosophy. Here is the story behind it: "in all my years of racing, I wanted to race with the boys but look like a girl. To me, there is nothing more fun than seeing a women kick ass on a race course and then able to go home, clean up and be a lady. It's the belief that women can be strong + beautiful. Hence the skull for the tough side and the butterfly for the feminine side".
A couple of months ago we have featured a limited edition U.P. together with Betty Designs check it out here
This clothing is 100% made in Italy by Q36.5. The jersey is made out of 70% recycled polyester.
Q36.5 Short Sleeve R2 Jersey and Gregarius Team Titanium Bib Short
Q36.5 is our new custom clothing supplier. That's not because we do not like Assos anymore but mainly because we wanted somebody with shorter lead-time and more flexibility in terms of minimum quantities.
The Q36.5 products are super technical, 100% made in Italy and the jersey's are made with 70% recycled polyester - we like that, and thats why we have also produced the new mens line with them.
Those are "inline" items and not part of the fundraiser projects on top.
..and yes, this outfit is matching perfectly with our custom design suplest road shoe.
We have all those items in stock right now in our German warehouse and they are ready to order. Check out our webshop
for more details.
