This stylishly unique Unissograff cut and sew T-Shirt provides donation support for the social rehabilitation of former child soldiers in Uganda and the educational support and welfare of children living in villages by the minefields of Cambodia.
This mystical design is entitled "BALAKA BOSATSU".
“Balaka” is Sanskrit for ‘children’, and ca37 created this design capturing the light of Buddhism for the children, who share their courage and love indiscriminately with the world. Balaka Bosatsu is a single-eyed Buddhist incarnation. ‘Why only one eye?’, you may ask. This represents a single straight vision without duplicity, conflict or duality, and embodies the UNISSOGRAFF message.
Your purchase will contribute 20% of the net proceeds as a donation to NPO Terra Renaissance which works locally to support children in Uganda and Cambodia. The artwork is a high-definition "Unissograff Art" digital print, and was created as a collaboration between Unissograff artist ca37 and the children of conflict-damaged areas. A portion of the layers incorporated in the design feature the drawings of Cambodian children together with painted footprints captured by local children in Uganda as they took part in a folk dance.
Unissograff is art that would be incomplete without children.
Entrancing and sharp, this smart men's T-shirt is a classic fashion staple, and can be worn to create many different looks. It is designed exclusively by Unissograff artist ca37, and is hand-made in London.

This jersey fabric is a weightier option, for those wanting a slightly heavier t-shirt. It also has more opaque base than other jersey options and a more elasticated give, with almost a double stretch attribute. The jersey is a breathable fabric, making it great for both casual and sportswear.
245GSM FLUID VELOUR
High-stretch fabric with a ripple and shine. This knitted fabric is a plush material with a sheen and mesh-like construct. It has a short pile with a super-soft face and a soft touch back for a smooth, delicate feeling on the skin. Ideal for clothing with a slight glisten when it catches the light.
[Donations generated by Asian and African artwork]
Unissograff™ generates funding to support the education and well-being of children in the minefield villages of Cambodia, and the social rehabilitation of young people who were engaged as child soldiers in the civil conflicts of Uganda.
Currently all donations generated by artwork created from the rakugaki drawings made by children in Cambodia and Uganda are made to Terra Renaissance, an officially certified NPO organisation based in Kyoto which stations its people on the ground in the Kingdom of Cambodia and the Republic of Uganda to actively support the people of these aforementioned areas.
This way we know that our donations are 100% used for the purpose with which they were intended, supporting the areas they were intended for.

Certified NPO Terra Renaissance was established in October 2001 with the aim of "realizing a society (world peace) where all lives can exist in safety and peace".
Terra, means "earth" in Latin, while Renaissance refers to "regeneration, reconstruction" in English. The name "Terra Renaissance" therefore represents "revival and revitalisation."
They aim to address the four issues of "land mines", "small weapons", "child soldiers", and "peace education" by simultaneously operating international cooperation at sites around the world while conducting enlightenment and proposal activities in Japan.
