Bermuda T-shirts with a Charity Twist

Bermuda T-shirts with a Charity Twist

Husband-and-wife team Lindsey and Shannon Philpott have teamed up to sell T-shirts — with a twist, for their stylish Bermuda-themed T-shirts, sold under the BermuniTee brand, help to support a variety of charities.

A proportion of the sale price goes to support a variety of Bermuda charities and Ms Philpott said it was good way to help those in need.

Now the couple, who also run the Bermuda Candle Company, have opened a pop-up shop in Washington Mall to promote the new range of shirts.

Ms Philpott said: “We wanted to offer something new and modernise the Bermuda T-shirt for Bermudians and tourists as well.

“The T-shirts are fresh, all cotton and with a modern fit.”

And she added: “For each T-shirt purchase, a proportion of the profits go to charity.”

The pop-up store, which opened its doors at the start of the month and which will be open throughout December, sells the candle range as well as the T-shirts.

Ms Philpott said: “We were planning on being here for the month of December, but we’re trying to extend it because things are going so well.

“The T-shirts are selling so well, we’re trying to get a new shipment in before Christmas.”

The minimalist-style shirts feature Bermuda themes like the Island map with the word ‘home’ and BDA and its map coordinates, as well as phrases that evoke its culture.

Ms Philpott said: “People love that this is something special for locals as well.

“The T-shirt that says ‘home’ is targeted towards people that live here, have made Bermuda their home or who have lived here.”

Ms Philpott explained the idea was the brainchild of Mr Philpott, who has a background in business.

She said: “It was his idea to try and create something where we could give back as well.
