As we all know on Friday 11th March 2011 a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and destructive tsunami caused extensive and severe damage in Northeastern Japan leaving thousands of people confirmed dead, injured or missing and millions more affected by the lack of water, electricity and transportation.
Over the past few weeks we have seen people all over the world coming together to raise money through the sale of everything from cakes to posters. Hackett London is just one of the many brands who have also stepped up to try and raise money for those who have been affected, by launching a limited edition polo shirt.
All profits from the sale of these shirts is being donated to the Japan Society “Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund”. The polo shirt has been designed with traditional Japanese embroidery of the cherry blossom which is an emblem of love and affection. The declaration of ‘Hope’ is embroidered on the polo in English and Japanese characters.
The cotton polo shirt is available in navy and white colourways for £49. You can purchase the shirt in Hackett stores worldwide and online from the end of April.
