The Story

Sometimes society can make rather unreasonable demands of us: be successful, be happy, be meaningful! Trying to realise these demands can be stressful and counter-productive. Some of the things society demands of us can be downright ludicrous; be skinny, be young, have a tastefully curated wardrobe!

It may seem counter-intuitive but accepting that things don't always turn out as we would ideally like, and that life can be pretty chaotic, can make us more happy. This way you can spend less time finding the right diet and more time on the important things, like finding the right floral print!

Loudly declare your stoicism with this print of hops and box trees, which represent injustice and stoicism in the language of flowers!


Kafka for President

Organic bamboo shirt
Kafka for President Kafka for President Kafka for President Kafka for President

A classic fit shirt featuring workwear details and beautiful metal buttons.

Bamboo cotton is a soft, lightweight cotton with a wonderful feel that is unique to bamboo fabrics, not unlike silk. Although the fabric is organic it is currently impossible to digitally print fabrics in a way that is organic, meaning that the final product is not truly organic.

The print features typography from a sign held up at a counterculture protest in New York in 1968, spelling out: 'Franz Kafka for President'. The print also features illustrations of the box plant, meaning 'stoicism' in the Victorian language of flowers. 

  • 100% organic bamboo cotton
  • Detailed metal buttons
  • Made in Britain
