🦒 The 1st shirt that saves the giraffes
5€ on each order donated to ASGN, our partner association which fights for the protection of giraffes
♻️ Made from 100% upcycled fabric
Upcy-what? Upcycled! This means that we have recovered end of stocks that had been sleeping for years at the bottom of hangars to give them a second life!
Composition 65% Linen 35% Cotton.
🇵🇹 Made in Portugal
These rolls of fabric salvaged from a French manufacturer were handed over to a family-run factory in Portugal near Porto. Shirt pros.
📐 Which size to choose on this unisex model?
The cut of this shirt is straight, slightly fitted.
For boys we recommend to take your usual size, or even a size above if you are between 2 sizes
For girls: go on your usual size for a slightly oversized / loose fit, or one size down if you prefer a more fitted effect.
Material and care
- Upcycled linen and cotton.
- Machine wash at 30°, wool or delicate program.
- Dryer strongly not recommended.
The creation of these shirts did not require any production of fabrics from us, because we have recovered dormant stocks originally intended for other textile companies!
In just 30 years, the number of giraffes has dropped by 40%. With blue giraffe®, participate directly in saving the long-necked mammal.
On each order, we donate up to €5 to the Association pour la Sauvegarde des Girafes au Niger.
ASGN is our partner association, based in Niger. There, we protect the last herd of wild giraffes in Africa!
But how can you be sure that the funds donated really serve the cause of the giraffes? 🤔
Our answer at girafon bleu®: by going to check yourself on site!
The girafon bleu® team undertakes to visit Niger every year to observe the efforts put in place by its partner ASGN to protect giraffes.
And it works! In 20 years, thanks to the work of the association: the number of giraffes has gone from 50 (virtual extinction) to more than 700 today!
"To save the giraffes, we must also save the men and women who live with them"
This is the signature of our partner association, which, in addition to protecting the natural habitat of giraffes, will participate in the development of the area where local communities and long-necked mammals coexist.
To support the local populations who live with giraffes, we have created the "blue giraffe micro-credit".
Awarded to women's groups in the region, this microloan helps develop the area and support the giraffes, women, men and children who live there.
Wash at 30 degrees maximum.
See to turn the garment inside out before putting it in the washing machine to promote print quality and durability. If there is embroidery, don't worry, it won't move!
Do not mix with dark colored laundry.
Do not machine dry.
As soon as the wash is finished, remember to shake your t-shirt to let the fiber breathe and then hang it up. This will prevent the product from shrinking and will prevent creases from forming. Drum washing may damage the print.
Compulsory cold ironing. Avoid using steam.
Do not iron on the prints to avoid damaging them.
Like the colors of t-shirts and sweatshirts new are not yet fixed before the first machine, pay attention to the first washing of these. The colors can disgorge and reach the other clothes. We therefore recommend that you wash your t-shirt alone and in short cycle during its very first wash to avoid unpleasant surprises
