Handmade in the U.S. with organic cotton and benefiting Architecture for Humanity's Gulf Coast Project, the Alabama Builds tee is a win-win-win situation. An offshoot of the Alabama Project (the short-lived adventure in couture made from recycled materials by local seamstresses in Alabama) the shirt uses the reverse appliqué technique that the Project applied to basketball jerseys, dresses and shirts to much success. The more minimalist cousin to the detailed florals and intricate constructions of Project Alabama, the black and white tee simply reads "Alabama" in a sans serif font. It's $75 from Alabama Chafin with all profits going to Architecture for Humanity.
