We ♥ Bernos Tees

Written By: MIM!—Start with "two guys a girl and a t-shirt idea" and with creative vision and drive, you end up with Bernos, an online t-shirt company. "[I]t all started, over a conversation about how there aren’t any t-shirts that highlight the rich culture that comes from Africa. All of us originating from Africa, but growing up in Europe and North America, found a gap not reached by other designers. Being lovers of tees, we wanted to design t-shirts that expressed our historical and cultural landmark, while breaching the gap between our origin and what we currently call home." We ♥ the Addis Ababa tee, for its artistic Ethiopian take on the Coca Cola logo, a logo which all of us, no matter where we grew up are sure to recognize.

Learn more about Bernos tees by visiting, and while you're there, take a look at their active blog, which serves as an online Ethiopian community.
