Galileo Galilei

£ 29.00

I feel sorry for Galileo, he contributed so much to science, especially astronomy but was cheated by his "friend" Pope Urban VIII. The Pope encouraged Galileo to write his book "Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems", and actually gave Galileo formal authorization from the Inquisition and papal permission to write it. Once it was published, the reaction to the book from the religious community was not good and the Pope back-pedalled and failed to support him. Galileo was called to Rome to defend his writings and found "vehemently suspect of heresy", forced to recant, and spent the rest of his life under house arrest. In my design I have made a statement that Galileo could not make, "I am a heretic... and proud of it!" I have also included Jupiter and its four largest moons (Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto) which were discovered by Galileo and are now called Galilean moons in his honor.

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.
