Emmanuel has a sweet smile and a passion for heavy rock music. He escaped Nigeria after deserting the army and was arrested in Sicily for smuggling, despite having been forced at gun point my Libyan militias to read the compass on the boat that took him across the Mediterranean. He joined the art workshops we organised in Sicily with one of our partner organisations, which provides free legal aid to those who are excluded by the Italian reception system, like Emmanuel. He was eager to express himself through art, and one of his drawings of a traditional African mask inspired one of our organic t-shirts. 50% of gross profits from the sale of that t-shirt directly support our partner organisation in Sicily, which is helping Emmanuel’s difficult case. Behind each of our designs, there is an untold story like Emmanuel’s.
