THE ARTIST / THE ASSOCIATION

AN ORIGINAL ARTWORK BY MARIE HAZARD WILL BE PRINTED ON THE BACK OF EACH T-SHIRT. THE PIECE OF ART HAS BEEN SPECIFICALLY CREATED FOR THIS COLLABORATION. MADE FROM A COMBINATION OF LINEN, ANGORA AND POLYESTER THREADS SEWN TOGETHER TO CREATE A DELICATE ‘NET’, THAT CAN BE INTERPRETED IN MANY WAYS, DEPENDING ON THE STANDPOINT OF THE VIEWER.

LES FOYERS DE TAMBACOUNDA IS A BEAUTIFUL FACILITY IN TAMBACOUNDA IN SOUTH-EAST SENEGAL. IT HOUSES YOUNG WOMEN FROM THE SURROUNDING VILLAGES WHO COME TO THIS REGIONAL CAPITAL TO ATTEND HIGH SCHOOL. LE KORSA, IN CLOSE PARTNERSHIP WITH DIRECTOR MAIMOUNA KA SOW, OVERSEES OPERATIONS AND PROGRAMMING FOR THE 130 YOUNG WOMEN WHO LIVE THERE. BECAUSE RURAL SENEGALESE COMMUNITIES STILL PRACTICE CHILDHOOD MARRIAGE, WITH GIRLS REMOVED FROM SCHOOL AND FORCED TO TAKE HUSBANDS, THE OPPORTUNITY FOR ADVANCED EDUCATION IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE MEANS OF ASSURING THEM A DIFFERENT FUTURE.
IN 2021 LE KORSA HAS INTRODUCED A NEW PROJECT AT THE FOYERS: ART CLASSES FOR THE PUPILS.

WORKING WITH THE BEST PARTNER

TEXMIN IS A FACTORY BASED IN PORTUGAL NEAR PORTO. IT’S BEEN MORE THAN 30 YEARS THEY ARE PARTNERING WITH TOP BRANDS INCLUDING LEVIS, A-COLD-WALL OR MAISON KITSUNÉ. TEXMIN WAS THE FIRST FACTORY WE MET WHEN WE WERE VISITING PORTUGAL FOR THE FIRST TIME AND THE ONLY THAT TRUSTED IN OUR PROJECT. WE ARE EVERYDAY IN CONTACT WITH RAQUEL, WHOSE IN CHARGE OF US FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS, AND FRANCISCO, THE OWNER OF TEXMIN. WITH FRANCISCO, WE SHARE THE WANT OF KEEPING THINGS SMALL AND QUALITATIVE, BEING OBSESSED BY DETAILS. THAT’S WHY HE KEEPS HIS NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES BELOW TWENTY, THAT HE KEEPS INVESTING IN NEW MACHINERY OR NEW FACILITIES AS TO OFFER TOP LEVEL WORKING CONDITIONS TO HIS EMPLOYEES. BEING THE BEST ALWAYS HAS BEEN THE GOAL OF FRANCISCO AND TEXMIN, AND WE ARE THANKFUL TO HAVE THEM ON OUR SIDE.
