Our statistics show that you really liked our recent list of unusual and creative t-shirts, so we had no choice but to publish another collection of really interactive shirts  – this time from Japan.

“Incorporating the interactivity, the mundanity, and the sense of fun, Japanese designer-duo Noto-Fusai (SHIKISAI) is trying to explore the alternative possibilities of t-shirt design, through the use of black print on white surface.
