SIERRA LEONE -> FREETOWN -> 20 streetkids -> 20 styles -> creating-> 20 brand new lives
For this project, 20 street kids from Freetown (Sierra Leone) created a stunning variety of patterns using traditional (and improvised) batik techniques.
The profits of this limited footwear edition go back directly to (…) the inspiring creators, who are looking to ameliorate their circumstances of living. These young men, who are known as the “Lion Base” crew, grew up in excruciating circumstances and have become a creative brotherhood thru shared experiences and common interests. The proceeds will help 20 hustling adolescents to afford shelter as well as schooling.
