thEM x Black Lodges Badge
Inspired by political activist Katharine Hamnett, whose t-shirts have advanced pro-choice, anti-racist, and environmental messages. George Michael wore her "CHOOSE LIFE" shirt in the music video for "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go." The slogan comes from Charlotte Perkins Gilman, one of the first writers to articulate the pitfalls of an androcentric world. She painted a vivid, entertaining picture of an alternative in the feminist utopian novel, Herland.
Spot clean only (do not dry clean!)
Do not iron

Sometimes you want to be easy to spot, other times more elusive. Designing for this reality is another part of our all eventualities ethos. Our badges snap onto our garments with custom-made magnets. They give our allies a blank canvas to hack our gear, creating visibility and becoming part of our community.
