💚 MORE BLACKS MORE DOGS MORE IRISH HOODIE 💚
"Merch on a Mission" ... immerse yourself in the story of this hoodie!
The Design: Another iconic bad ass collaboration. The design started in the incredible hands of Irish artist Dee Mulrooney who brought to life the now-extinct Irish Wolf with Neolithic Celtic Symbols from Newgrange, Nowth and Dowth as these are the earliest signs and artworks in Ireland and all to do with connection. It then got sent to Arakwal Artist Nickolla Clark who brought to life the Dingo. The artwork inside the Dingo represents our journeys across country, meeting and gathering at our sacred sites, waterholes and many tribal homelands. The line work connecting the circle meeting places is those sacred song lines we all travelled on for story, trading, food, ceremony and sorry business.
The Words: This Hoodie is a powerful statement and a twist on the racist signs of 'No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish' seen around USA, UK and the same attitudes that prevailed in so-called Australia since colonisation. More Blacks More Dogs More Irish need we say more. These words and powerful Dingo and Irish Wolf were sent to powerhouse Stroud de' Signs who created the layout for this hoodie.
The Printing: This Hoodie is designed to LAST! It is an extremely lush hoodie made and printed to the highest standards. Vegan, Fairwear, Organic and as snuggly AF.
