Exclusive Contour Functional Art t-shirt designed and sold to extend a hand and welcome all who wish to join the Contour team, which believes in sustainable design and promotes R.O.S.E. The acronym stands for the core values of our design company: Reinvest, Outreach, Sustain, Empower.
We design and build custom pieces of functional art by collaborating with local artisans in Malawi, a small country in East Africa. Every shirt purchased from us plants a tree with Root to Fruit, our non-profit partner in Malawi. Buy a tee, plant a tree!
You will receive a signed certificate from our partner in Malawi stating that you have contributed value to their community. You will also receive a GPS location of your tree!
At Contour, we are passionate about empowering artisans and the communities in which they live- globally. Malawi is the first of many countries that we will reinvest in through our social impact initiative.
Each set of 100 trees offsets 20 metric tons of CO2 over 10 years, stored in the roots, trunk, branches and leaves of your trees.
By compensating emissions with our partner Root to Fruit, you are contributing to jobs, environmental education, and improved access to nutrition for the local population in Malawi. You are also contributing to an improved local climate with better soil fertility, increased local rainfall, conservation of groundwater systems and reduced erosion. Every single tree planted impacts an entire community. Thank you for helping us address climate change in a sustainable and socioeconomic way!
What about the shirt? This is now the staple t-shirt of your wardrobe! It's clever, it's for a great cause and it's made of a thicker, heavier cotton- but it's still soft and comfy. And the double stitching on the neckline and sleeves add more durability to what is sure to be a favorite!
