Namaqua is a media-driven brand, capturing world content in real-time,
with slogan t-shirts being the first medium for expression.
The NAMA t-shirt, the studio's first release, is refined and contemporary, crafted from organic Pima cotton, the weave yarned bespoke and finished with no chemicals or silicones. The words, screen printed by hand using water-based inks which become as one with the fabric.
Defaf Alamri, Namaqua’s founder and artist in residence, explores through her practice the studio’s founding pillars of identity, peace, sustainability, and equality. Born in Iraq in 1982, moving to the UK when she was 4 years old, she has experienced first hand some of the concepts explored.
