Our T-Shirt of the Month for May 2024, made of 100% organic cotton by a worker-owned co-operative, and supporting grassroots labour unions in South Asia.

It depicts Dutch cellist, conductor, lesbian and anti-Nazi resistance member Frieda Belinfante who was born in Amsterdam in May 1904. During the German occupation Frieda joined the resistance and began forging documents for people hiding from the Nazis and their collaborators. Along with gay resistance fighter Willem Arondeus Belinfante helped plan a successful attack on the Amsterdam population registry which destroyed ID records so that forged papers couldn't be identified. While the other members of the group were captured and executed, she managed to evade capture by disguising herself as a man, and eventually fleeing to Switzerland with the help of the French resistance. Belinfante survived the war and lived until the age of 90.

Designed by illustrator and tattoo artist Götz from Rostock.

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 dna merch are out of stock, design will instead be printed on an organic t-shirt from fairwear foundation leader Stanley & Stella instead.
