Did you ever wonder what you would take away from Cyprus as a souvenir if you were a tourist? Something that would last longer than “halloumi”, “lountza” and “tsamarella”… Did you also wonder why there isn’t a cool t-shirt representing our culture and origins apart from the “I LOVE CYPRUS” type that has been there forever? I haven’t… but it seems that I have just found it.
These amazingly funky t-shirts that come in all colours, sizes and types for both men and women seem to be the new thing. Every t-shirt has a typical Cypriot print, including our caretta caretta turtles, Aphrodite, the mufflon (“agrino”), the Venetian walls of Nicosia and many more. On the tag one can find the story behind each picture as well as information on organic cotton* (from which every t-shirt is made). All of the above with just 15€!
The whole concept came from a Cypriot and proud lady who simply wanted tourists and visitors to be able to take away something nice that they can actually use. Little did she know that locals would use them even more! The colors are bright, the pictures are cool and whole idea is fantastic. Click here to contact us for ordering online & delivery.

*Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment, ie without pesticides and genetically modified products. In addition, the process is part of fairtrade, which ensures empowering developing country producers and promotes sustainability and employment.
Organic agriculture all together protects the health of people and the planet by reducing the overall exposure to toxic chemicals from synthetic pesticides that can end up in the ground, air, water and food supply, and that are associated with health consequences, from asthma to cancer. Thus, organic cotton production is important to the long-term health of the planet.
Finally, the dying and printing methods used are without heavy metals, PVC and formaldehyde, opticial whiteners, chlorine bleach, flameretardants or phthalates.
