Product info: k1x BATIK BOOK none

After the great success of K1X' initial DCAC Sierra Leone series in 2011, K1Xclusive took this unique collaboration - between a young African artist collective, the *folorunsho project and basketball brand K1X - to the next level.

LION BASE is a documentary photo book that illustrates the creation process - and gives a revealing glimpse into the lives of the LION BASE crew - consisting of 20 struggling adolescents in Freetown, Sierra Leone. In addition to visualizing the making-of process of the BATIK Edition, the book features a variety of unseen footage from the "Inside Out" project by street artist JR, showing the typical oversize portaits of the very same protagonists of this *folorunsho project. Those 20 street kids from Freetown (Sierra Leone) have created a stunning variety of patterns using traditional batik techniques. These unique fabrics were then manufactured into 20 one-of-a kind pair of sneakers, that are being sold exclusively at legendary concept store COLETTE in Paris.

LION BASE provides an intimate perspective at the raw life in the streets of Freetown, documenting the life these 20 youths were living under horrendous circumstances: The book's stunning imagery invites you into a reality that most of us are unable to imagine. The book is only available at COLETTE and selected locations for a retail price of 35,-. All profits will go to the *folorunsho Sharity to provide an education and adequate living conditions for the LION BASE crew. It’s not about charity. It’s all about sharing!
