A Find: Poetik's Haiku T-Shirts

In the past year I’ve spent six months in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Always the dedicated shopper, I spent many an afternoon looking for cute t-shirts with Spanish phrases, but could only find ones with English slogans. I recently discovered Poetik’s shirts – and they are exactly what I was always searching for. Poetik’s organic cotton t-shirts feature simple, life-celebrating haikus, written in a variety of languages. People around the world craft the haikus and then submit them to Poetik’s website; the best ones are then selected and translated into many languages. My black, snugly fitting t-shirt features this haiku: “juegan los niños – sobre el mismo jardin – en que hubo guerra” – “the children play – in the same garden – where there was once war.” Profound, right?

Find the globally inspired, haiku-decorated t-shirts at poetik.org.
