NEW! Refugee Raised Crewneck Tee

This is the shirt to wear if you have been raised by refugees. Raised by the resilience, love, grit and promise of parents or carers who had to leave their known for the unknown. And, with it, had to adapt to new culture, language, food and life. This is the shirt to wear if you are proud of your refugee heritage or being part of a migrant story. This is a thank you to our refugee raisers; a visual paean to the ones that whispered dreams in mother tongues, the ones that sang us lullabies; song stories of home, the ones that fed us rice, sauces, foods from lands they had to leave. This shirt is a statement about how refugee mothers, fathers, siblings, aunties, uncles and carers have raised us up - some with little to no resources - relying on stories, love and heart. This is a thank you to the refugees who raised us and made us, us.


The inspiration from this design comes from my grandmother who crossed the Mekong river to bring her family, including my mom, to safety. The Secret War in Laos brought death and destruction to their hometown so they fled to Thailand to seek refuge. Months later, they were all flown to the US and arrived in 1976.

The unisex heavy cotton tee is the basic staple of any wardrobe. It is the foundation upon which casual fashion grows. All it needs is a personalized design to elevate things to profitability. The specialty spun fibers provide a smooth surface for premium printing vividity and sharpness. No side seams mean there are no itchy interruptions under the arms. The shoulders have tape for improved durability.

Size Guideline: I'm 5'3, 130lbs and I wear a medium for a loose fit, and a small for a tighter fit. 

Please make sure you choose the right size as we can only refund or exchange an item if it's damaged. Thank you.
