Once again Akomplice does a meaningful collaboration. This time with Nacho Becerra. The front features the seal of both the United States and Mexico, and a quote from Akomplice explaining the collaboration. The back features Nacho’s “Mi Bandera” design.
“Brotherhood, love, culture, common continent, unity, and appreciation are all aspects of what this flag represents. Portions of Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah all formerly belonged to Mexico. It is the most popular vacation destination for Americans and is the world’s third largest buyer of US products. Mexico has one of the warmest, most tranquil and most loving cultures in the world. It is important we credit people with Mexican heritage living in the United States for making it a better place to live. Nacho Becerra is an artist and US citizen who immigrated from Mexico when he was 16. He created the “Mi Bandera” artwork seen on this shirt. He chose to use the traditional Mexican serape fabric because, to him, its colors represent all of the people striving to be legal in the beautiful and abundant country of the United States. In light of the threatening ICE raids and proposed border wall, we wanted to create a symbol of our solidarity with Mexico and with people of Mexican heritage. Nacho’s flag was the perfect symbol. United we stand.”
