  • Cool Tees Thursday: Aṣọ

     

    Just came across this great company on twitter. The Iyoba Idia Profile T-Dress is part of a collection of African inspired T-shirts from Aso.

    This design features the image of a bronze cast of the likeness of Iyoba Idia (Queen Mother) from the ancient Kingdom of Benin in what is now modern day Nigeria.   The bronze is one part of a collection of world-renowned bronze artefacts from the region.

    Iyoba Idia was of the Edo people. She was a warrior, protector, and a political & spiritual guide who fought for her son, Osegie, to claim the title of Oba of the Kingdom of Benin (c1504 to c1550). Her power and influence were such that she has been referred to as the ‘Hidden Oba’. She represents a timeless example of an African leader.

    My mum is from Benin so naturally I LOVE THIS!

    Our first cool tee for 2014 is too cute! Lettuce Turnip The Beet, get it?

    Yup. Clever.

    It comes in adult as well as children’s sizes but I could not resist featuring this cool dude.

    Check out the various size and colour options in Coup’s Etsy Store.

    Finally a cool tee of our own! Whoop whoop. This one is called the Black Stars (which coincidentally is the name of the Ghanaian Football team. What a happy coincidence!)

  • Cool Tees Thursday- Madina

    Today’s cool tee from Madina (Mark Culmer) features J Dilla, enough said! The hoodie version is also available.

    J Dilla

    This tee is a complete indulgence on my part because J Dilla produced some of my favourite music in the entire world. A tad dramatic yes, but its the truth!

    Like ‘The Light‘ on the Like Water for Chocolate album by Common.
