Hand Painted Sew On Patch-Save Sharks
This is a unique hand painted, vegan patch that can be sewn on to clothing, bags, cushions etc.
All of my patches are made out of denim cut from second hand jeans and painted with non toxic, water based, vegan fabric paint to ensure that they are cruelty free and eco friendly.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Hand wash. Avoid over washing (paint may fade with multiple washes). Air dry. Iron through a cloth without steam. Cannot be dry cleaned.
Did you know that sharks have been around for about 400 million years and survived 5 mass extinctions.. yet today many species are threatened with extinction due to human pressure? The reasons for their decline are over fishing, shark finning, demand for shark products such as shark leather, teeth and liver oil and pollution and habitat destruction. These animals, who are often viewed as monsters are actually incredibly vulnerable.. in fact around 100 million sharks are killed by humans every year. It makes you question.. are they the monsters? Or are we?
