Thaoss- The art of story Shopping

A thoughtful gift for all the Daddies who adore their little chicks to the moon and back!This present will make their heart melt: a quality, organic cotton, Papa Poule T-shirt which can be personalised with the number and names of your chicks (aka children). You can add as many as required!We guarantee that you better half will not go out on a run or play any sports this summer without wearing his.

It also exists in a white and grey colour, and there is a sweatshirt version in blue or grey that is also very popular.

The design is of superb quality and very resistant to washes (it has been tested for). It is also very comfy to wear, kind to the environment and Dad’s skin as 100% organic cotton. The name’s personalisation sits very nicely above the head of each chick.

For more ideas and inspirations, check out our dad’s selection at the eco-friendly family e-shop.
