Dragonfly & Kiss Project – Think ‘GoOd’ not ‘GoLd.’ A Collective’s production of high-end tee-shirts featuring Frida Kahlo.


The project

The Dragonfly & Kiss Collective introduces its first project : a collection of limited edition, high-end biological T-shirts inspired by Frida Kahlo, conceived in Paris and produced in India to benefit challenged communities in both countries.



The project’s primary goal is to fund humanitarian and environmental entities by establishing long term dynamics with the communities it will benefit. To make it the amazing success it is bound to generate, we need your financial involvement and your suggestions. An investment that will benefit you on one hand, and the communities that you will help select as well.


The genesis of the project ? 10 French individuals – artists, scientists, marketing and business representatives – joining forces to produce a project that will benefit challenged communities in India and in France.


The product ? a high-end tee shirt bearing the image of Frida Kahlo to be released in September in conjunction with the artist’s retrospective at the _______ in Paris.

Every detail of the Collective’s daily work and financial plan can be found in the site. If you make it your home page, you will follow the project’s global evolution and the daily growth of your investment. With full transparency, we commit to reporting how the monies are used to fund the production and how the proceeds will be chaneled to benefit humanitarian associations with environmentally controlled guidelines and improved work ethics on the manufacturer’s side. And also in France with our partner YUMP





We will inform you throught the blog of our actions and projects in India, the place were we will manufacture the collection.

We are open to other partners offers and echanges.

We will study the dossier you propose to us to redistribute a part of the benefits,

The dossier sélection is planned for February 2014.


Briefly, the Frida Kahlo Foundation Enterprise has granted the Collective the license to use the artist’s image. As a result, the Collective - represented by Corinne Prosé, Director of  Kawaiko SARL Societe – oversees the entire operation and directs the production of the Tee Shirts’ prototype in India. 






André Breton suggested that Frida Kahlo’s Art was a ribbon around a bomb. Well, the bomb is about to explode again. In October 2013, a new major Frida Kahlo retrospective opens in Paris. The timing could not be more opportune. Through your contribution to the Dragonfly&Kiss Collective, you will share the power, the emotions and the talent of this unusual artist.


Before you make up your mind, please take a look at the product : a collection of six colorful tee shirts that bears the image and the words of the great artist. « Viva la Vida» was the inspiration for the bold designs featured on the tightly worn, long sleeved, 180 grams super soft bio cotton tee shirts. The details need to be noted as well. The shirt is embroided and adorned with pearls and mini-strass. All creations feature the Collective’s signature piece : an embroided medal of our own Dragonfly.


The tee shirt is sold with a little notebook made in partnership with Clairefontaine in a pre-packaged satin-cotton bag wich can be recycled or re-used as a cushion case. Think Christmas gift….








Available in 6 colors, 6 sizes and 6 different designs



You should know that we’ve made the choice to produce in India because this is the country where we can find  expert manpower and quality products with orders as small as 500 t-shirts.  Rest assured, future projects will be produced in France and in countries where the greatest products can be manufactured.


Now, regarding the schedule. Most important milestone: a September delivery of the first batch to coincide with the buzz created around the Paris Retrospective.

The technical sheets have already been sent to our correspondent Jay in Tiruppur.

The material research is in progress so that we can finalize the best biological cotton selection that will work with the patterns we have developed. T


Corinne Prose arrives to India to validate the selection and to refine the design details, such as the choice of pearls and embroided designs, the position of the medal at the back and the cushion case.


Lot of people often comment about the manufacturing of sneakers or clothes in countries like China, India, etc…  The production of Dragonfly & Kiss tee shirts will be effectuatedwithin strict ethical and environmental guidelines.

Through our blog,  you will follow all  fabrication stages. We will post pictures, videos, you will get to know the faces and the souls of the labourers from the other corner of the world who are working to fabricate the marvellous things we like and wear.  Similarly, Daniel, who is responsible for the project development in India and who lives part time in Tiruppur, will be posting photos and experiences regularly to document the entire process as it happens.  


We hope you will love our prototypes and that you will pre-order your own tee shirts. Not only will you get a great product, but you will also  help develop our project, while preserving local resources and respecting strong work ethics at the manufacture. 


Come fly with us! There is a great adventure ahead of us!


We hope that you are as enthusiast as we are about going out together into this beautiful and greathearted adventure !


Order your tee shirt today and be part of the great  Dragon&KISS ADVENTURE – (you will receive it AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER 2013 in time for the opening)

Why fund it?

We know it sounds crazy. How can an initial import of 8000 euros help start what we envision to be a great financial and artistic venture? Easily. The 8.000 euros will pay for the manufacturing of the t-shirt prototypes and the packaging as well as the deposit (1000 euros) for the use of the Frida kahlo license.

In addition, it will also fund the director’s trip to India where prototypes will be finalized, work conditions checked and to meet the partners with whom we are associated there.


Be a part of this project, contribute as you can, and reserve the right to purchase the tee shirts at a friend’s price. (In September, the whole package (T+cushion case+notebook) will be sold in selected venues for 99 euros.)


Thank you. 


We’ve fixed an amount wich corresponds to the minimun needs :


8.000 euros


That would be great to exceed the 100% of the found !

If the objective it’s achieved it would stay open.

Also don’t hesitate to participate if the objetive it’s achieved.

Every supplementary euro help us to look higher !

Bonjour, Voilà, c'est fait, le projet est sur Ulule : http://fr.ulule.com/fridakahlo-project/ Il est remanié pour être plus lisible je l'espère, et le montant total est le même mais reformulé différemment : L'objectif est de pré-commander 150 tee-shirts pour pouvoir lancer la production. Pour l'instant, je suis dans la "couveuse" de Ulule, je serai vraiment référencée au bout de 5 commandes ! Je compte sur vous pour m'accompagner comme vous l'avez fait ici. La collecte s'arrête le 30 septembre, pas de temps à perdre pour commander. merci ! Corinne

Tous mes voeux de réussite pour ce beau projet.
