Gene Sharp Pencils More Powerful by Guy Pendlebury

£ 39.00

Gene Sharp's pamphlet From Dictatorship to Democracy, published in early 1990, has served as a road map for the break up of the satellite states of the old Soviet Union and the work in progress that is The Arab Spring of 2011. More recently the effort to rid Hong Kong of its current supreme leader could not be characterised with a colour, instead they used an umbrella. The Guy Pendlebury Pencil design makes the point that ultimately the pencil is mightier than the bomb.

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.
