Queer Dutch designer Bas Kosters will release a limited edition t-shirt to "protect the tiger and raise awareness," according to Instagram:
Mega excited to share this special project for @wnfnederland My limited edition tshirt to protect the tiger and raise awareness to be released at @amsterdamfashionweek next thursday at my fashionshow on openingnight #drawing #illustration #tiger #iprotecttigers #wroar #fashion #fashionmatters #fashionforfreedom #baskosters #wnf #wwf #tigerstwo #3900tigers #wildleven #staytuned
The tee is in partnership with the World Nature Fund, who on their site explain, "There are only 3,900 tigers living in the wild. They are chased by poachers and their habitat is being destroyed. But we can give this beautiful animal a future. Our dream is to double the number of tigers in the wild in 2022 - the next Chinese year of the tiger."
Since only 3,900 tigers remain on the planet, 3,900 shirts will be made and distributed at Amsterdam Fashion Week on July 13.
Tigers have become endangered due to a horrifying combination of poaching, trafficking, reduction in habitat (93% of their natural home is no longer inhabitable by wildlife), and climate change, according to the World Wildlife Fund's site.
