jakarta: bolbal

popular brit soccer team manchester united cancelled its highly-anticipated first ever visit to indonesia due to the recent hotel bombings in jakarta. the visit had inspired low-income street vendors to massively produce manchester united tees and they lost a considerable amount of money when it was cancelled. the local bolbal initiative [bolbal is slang for bolak balik or reversible] was launched to come to the vendors' aid by buying the tees, printing the logo of #indonesiaunite, a civil movement against terrorism, on the reverse side and resell for charity. the tee is exclusively available at the wadezig store. location: jalan lamandau IV no. 18 [kebayoran baru]. © bolbal
