From the Democracy Prints collection, “IHRAM” by Khalid Ibrahim (a scientist and photographer living in Michigan) poses a powerful but tranquil response to the USA’s legislative Muslim ban. Of Ihram clothing, the artist says it’s “a garment of equity and peace; it sheds the wearer of any class or social status. Every year during Hajj, millions of Muslims wear Ihram on their religious pilgrimage to Meccah. Whether you are a rich or poor, everyone wears the same two simple white pieces of cloth.” This peaceful simplicity is reflected in his serene image. Profits from the sale of this print (on matte heavyweight photo paper) go to RAICES, an organization that works to reunite families separated at the US border.
Crafted from 100% Mongolian cashmere, Naadam’s sweater is ultra-soft and fits as if it were tailored—despite being made for all genders. Best of all, they hand-brush goats, collect the fallen cashmere fibers and spin them into yarn—rather than shearing the animals. The brand emphasizes their sustainability and proves their commitment by giving back: they use clean power at their manufacturing plants, fairly compensate herders, provide veterinary care for goats, offer livestock insurance to family farmers (ensuring that even if they cannot provide materials, they’ll still be paid) and also work with the Gobi Revival Fund (a non-profit) to disburse donations.
