Paintable T-shirt / clothes

Paintable T-shirt

African children have few or even no clothes to wear.
We have designed “Paintable T-shirt” which does not need to be changed every day but keeps changing patterns.
There is a white board made with waterproof fabric on “Paintable T-shirt”. African children can draw patterns on it and of course they can wipe the patterns with brush easily, so that they can always have a new clothes. Our design helps African children experience the joy of wearing new clothes, and motivates their creativity and imagination as well. “Paintable T-shirt” does not only solve the problem of material shortage in Africa, but enforce art education of African children.
