An instant hit, this hand-embroidered portrait of Frida Kahlo was designed in house and sampled onto a simple white t-shirt for Melanie to wear to the preview of 'WO/', an international art exhibition she co-curated in Vane gallery to mark International Women's Day 2018. As a woman artist, a feminist and someone who defied societal expectations, Frida Kahlo was the perfect inspirational figure.
This hand-drawn design had been privately commissioned many times by women in the creative industries before officially going on sale, and has been worn internationally and at the private previews of the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the exquisite and inspiring V&A museum. The design is based on a front-facing portrait of Frida Kahlo, and combines several crewelwork techniques to give a unique and origianl texture.
Each quality t-shirt is sourced from 'Earth Positive', a carbon neutral company who creates garments to the highest ethical, social and environmentally friendly standards. This t-shirt is a classic relaxed ladies fit (other fits available on commission), is made from 100% organic cotton and is embroidered with world-renowned quality DMC cotton threads.
