Our T-Shirt of the Month for December 2021, made of 100% organic cotton by a worker-owned co-operative, and supporting shack-dwellers organising in South Africa and grassroots labour unions in South Asia. In unisex fit, featuring a design by multidisciplinary Afro-Indigenous Artivist Renata Doré inspired by the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the women like Rosa Parks and Claudette Colvin whose activism helped bring it about. The boycott led to the desegregation of public transport in Montgomery, Alabama. The design includes the starting and ending date of the boycott and aims to create visibility for Black women through images that value the collective memories of the Afro-diasporic population.

    Artist Renata Doré dialogues with the poetics of decolonisation through visual and urban arts, cyberactivism, Black theatre and audiovisuals. She focuses on generating visibility for Black women through images that value the collective memories of the Afro-diasporic population. She currently studies in Cuba, specialising in TV and New Media.

    When will I receive my t-shirt?

    Printing of each T-Shirt of the Month will take approximately one week after being ordered. The shirts will then be shipped from France, and delivery should take up to one week for Europe, and up to 2 weeks for the rest of the world.
    In the unlikely event that shirts from Humana Nova are out of stock, design will instead be printed on an organic t-shirt from fairwear foundation leader Stanley & Stella instead.
