rarest cat in the world
The Amur leopard lives in Sikhote-Alin, a mountain range in the Russian Far East. Today, there are estimated to be less than 70 left in the wild.
This design symbolises one of the many reasons why this animal is critically endangered. Because besides habitat loss, habitat fragmentation, climate change, and deforestation; the Amur Leopard is hunted for its thick, luscious, black-ringed coat. ‘Our’ leopard tried to be ahead of the game by wearing his own.
The Amur Leopard Tee helps save the Amur Leopard. To do so we work with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to raise awareness and help protect this endangered species.
To save the Amur Leopard we donate 33% of our revenue from each shirt towards their cause.

Fast fashion sucks!
We at Achilles and the Tortoise worry about the negative impact of fast fashion on people and planet. because of excessive pollution, unsold stock and gruesome working conditions. That’s why we are on a mission to transform the clothing industry and at the same time enhance natural biodiversity by protecting endangered species.
We show the world the ‘true price’ of clothing and demonstrate that ethics can be associated with high-quality streetwear. We show the true price by being completely transparant about every step in the process and by bringing balance between welfare (1), the wellbeing of people (2) and the wellbeing of nature (3). We call this ‘The Rule of Thirds’.
A fair and honest production process in means of sustainability and ethics makes up 33% of our price.
