Below, their own comment:
“Vandaag vanuit Vrouwenplatform Carree samen met onze projectleider Margien Vroom in Zwolle een t-shirt van Artwearness T shirt print design aangeboden aan wethouder Eefke Meijerink! Om aandacht te vragen voor het stoppen van geweld tegen vrouwen: Orangetheworld en ons project #DeNieuweToek”
We like to pay attention to our special this month discount design:
Womans rights, it seems so naturally and absolutely evident. Do we, the free and independent woman, take it for granted? To be honest, taking myself as example, sometimes I do. It feels absolutely normal if I get equal treatment, if I do not have to worry about an (innocent) pad on the buttocks. Or serious powerplay between the sexes (or I’am not aware of it) . I do not encounter these complicated and belittling situations. Why? I am not sure but I grew up with the state of mind that woman suppose to be equal to men. I also grew up with the reality check that even though my mother and grandmothers fought for there right to be equal, in fact their world was not ready yet.
But my world is. And I consider myself lucky. I must say, independency and self esteem starts with your self and it need to be guarded and protected at al means.
I am a privileged woman, I see that. So my sisterhood oblige me to stand up for sisters in lesser situations. And I speak, when ever I can, On behalf of them and their future too.
The Royal We, Artwearness, share a workspace with Vrouwen platform caree, Zwolle. They are a serious workforce to empower woman. Young woman, vulnerable woman and isolated woman. Dutch woman who suffered aggression and oppression, Woman without perspective….And this is our very emancipated Holland! Leave alone all places in the world were woman has no rights and are demolished even by there own spouses.
Our workspace is a real suffragette community, all women!! And they make me aware of the need of woman issue awareness every day!
Of all people, woman, are probably still the largest group of discriminated, misused, abused, mutilated and attacked ones.
I like to introduce the following hash-tack to all of our sisters: #Powerflower.
Check this cool t- shirt design too, it is also discounted from 29,95 to 25,00
And Check the action Orange The world @ vrouwenplatform Carree!
few musical inspirations for you:
Artwearness found a new very contemporary printshop in The Hague (Den Haag) http://theoven.nl/the-oven/. They are specialized in printing full color on cotton garments like shirts and sweaters with high quality digital printers, plotters, embroidery machines and silkscreen. At the same time we say good bey and thank We Produce for printing high quality for us the past years. The Oven is a growing print factory with the future in mind. So we are very happy to be a small part of their factory.
This months discount ‘ Conshumanity’
In honore of William Shakespeare we speak these words:
To consume or not to consume, that is the question.
We are all consumers.
But, what defines us, what keeps us going?
Are we defined by what we consume or by how we act?
What is humanity anyway? Is it the fed by what others might think or is it driven by consciousness?
Orange The World Action: still open

The UN gave life to a world wide protest against aggression towards women, named Orange The World . Artwearness and Vrouwenplatform Carree share a building @ the Koestraat in Zwolle. We are mutually interested in what the other is doing and share the solidarity with vulnerable woman all over the world. One reason is that we are all women too but another reason is that we strongly believe in independence, equality and respect! We collaborated earlier in 2016 with the first ‘Orange the World’ day.
