The Meerkat T-Shirt is a casual and comfortable t-shirt, featuring a vibrant and expressive hand-drawn illustration of one of South Africa's most intelligent and elegant animals, the meerkat.

Franco-Algerian artist and AZ Factory Amigo Chafik Cheriet spontaneously hand-painted these animal prints alongside Alber in his last months at the studio. Alber gave him full creative freedom to create these designs, as inspired by the beauty and grace of the wild world. Having gone unused, the prints were re-discovered by Thebe during his exploration of the AZ Factory archive.

What if Africa were the birthplace of couture? This was the central question for our collaborative product story with Thebe Magugu, INTERSECTION. As the birthplace of Alber and Thebe, Africa is a foundational starting point for both designers and holds key aspects of luxury, such as generational craft and storytelling as core elements of its culture.

For this product story, Thebe juxtaposes nu-Africa aesthetics with the notable principles of couture: classic garments are reinvented in smart fabrics, bold prints and modern, versatile silhouettes to create new hybrid shapes, intended for all women.

- Round neck

About the Artist:
Chafik Cheriet is a Paris-based Franco-Algerian artist, whose work portrays a tormented yet deeply lyrical world. His tender, falsely precious and violent drawings, occasionally sexual and unsettling, are mingled together as he initiates a candid exploration of his subconscious as freed from convention.

Cotton Seacell blend: 80% Organic Cotton, 20% Seacell

Organic Cotton is a soft, highly breathable, and resistant biodegradable fiber that contains inherent hypoallergenic and insulating properties. This natural textile also restricts the use of toxic chemicals, helping prevent skin irritation and chemical waste.

Seacell is a non-allergenic, silky fiber made from seaweed fiber. Seaweed is rich in essential substances such as vitamins, amino acids and minerals, which helps protect the skin against harmful environmental influences and soothes inflammation.

- Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified Organic Cotton
