Fela Kuti

£ 29.00

Fela Kuti first came to my attention through his association with the extraordinary drummer and composer Ginger Baker who had travelled to Africa in the aftermath of his membership of the bands Cream, Blind Faith and Ginger Baker's Airforce.

Fela Kuti well understood the value of a good drummer his regular man was Tony Allen oft described as the world's greatest, a title he shared with Ginger. These men, Kuti, Baker, Allen were spontaneous, extravagantly talented, not given to reflection: marvellous. They are all over due a t shirt from WeAdmire.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
