A T-shirt fit for the Guru Tribe…

Standard

A few years ago we ran a competition to design a T-Shirt suitable for the Guru Tribe. Here’s a bit about how it went…

“…after a lot of deliberation Joanna Morris (Northern Echo), our chief judge who I really do have to thank for doing a very difficult job so well, has picked Glenn Wigham’s handpainted T-shirt as the winner of our CUSTOMISE A GURU T-SHIRT COMPETITION. Joanna said: “Glenn’s entry was bold, colourful and provocative. Along with its touch of rebellion and non-conformity, it beautifully embodies the spirit of Guru and those who flock to the tiny shop that keeps Darlington’s counter-culture thriving and well-dressed”.

We would like to add, “A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ENTERED SUCH A HIGH STANDARD OF WORK  – WE LOVE YOU!!!”

The image is of Glenn Wigham wearing his winning design. He wrote that his design is both a protest at the way the 1st world often exploits other cultures and a celebration of how the life, colour and vibrancy which the respectful appreciation of the art of those cultures provides, enhances and enriches all of our lives.

About Guru Boutique

This is a blog about a small family run fair trade gift, clothes and card shop, which at the date of writing has managed to survive for almost five decades. In 1971 the idea took shape for this business, but it began life under the name of Quaker Girl. In 1972 it became Guru Boutique. Guru Boutique is much more than a business, it is a way of life and a labour of love!
