Jamaican patriotism in Original Designs
Jamaican clothing usually expresses a fierce patriotism for the little island of Jamaica. Tourists always love to take home a red stripe t-shirt or some Jamaican patois or other well known, uniquely Jamaican phrase, written across their chests.
The Jamaican flag is also something that is popular on everything from shoes, purses, wallets and backpacks to baseball caps.

My Jamaican friend always buys a big handful of keyrings and cigarette lighters for her friends back home. These often have a Jamaican coat of arms, flag or graphic of Bob Marley on them. She also comes back with and arm full of Jamaican clothing.
If the Jamaican flag features predominately in merchandise graphic design, then the Rasta flag comes in a close second. The red, gold and green is also featured fully on mesh singlets, t-shirts, dresses and straw hats.
I was impressed by the quality of the Rasta handicrafts, beautifully handmade Rasta tams and hats in lovely patterns and coloUrs. Handwoven belts and carved jewellery.
When it comes to jewellery, my favourite is the hematite, a bi-product of bauxite mining, that has really interesting properties. It is supposed to protect you from electro magnetic fields, so in this day and age it cant do any harm to wear a piece. Rasta people make lovely hematite bracelets and necklaces.
Jamaicans love their t-shirts. These original T-shirts come in designs that are unique and expressive. There is a huge range of top quality cotton t-shirts for men, women, children and baby. Wear your Jamaican solidarity.
