Our T-Shirt of the Month for September 2022, made of 100% organic cotton by a worker-owned co-operative, and supporting grassroots labour unions in South Asia. 
It celebrates the birth in September 1828 of legendary author and Christian anarchist Leo Tolstoy. His greatest work, War and Peace, contains an epilogue dotted throughout which functions as a key introduction to the concept of "people's history", which was highly influential for some of us at WCH. And it explains how history is not the story of "great men" but the overlapping stories of millions and billions of us: ordinary people.
This month's design is by tattoo artist Nastia Jakovleva, who was born in Leningrad (today St. Petersburg) and lives in Berlin. She has placed the love of Andrei Nikolayevich and Natasha Rostova at the center of her drawing. Andrej and Natascha are two of the main protagonists from War and Peace. The drawing shows Andrei and Natasha at their first dance at the New Year's Eve ball in 1809. While the dancing couple and their love stands for peace, the background symbolizes the horrors of war. The epic quote "Everything I know, I know because of love" - also from the book - completes this extraordinary design.
This t-shirt is available strictly limited edition for this month only. Be sure to preorder yours by September 30 as all t-shirts will be sewn and printed together.
