Main Story: Local designers: Fashion on your doorstep
Richard Franks, owner and designer at Cayman Made, never thought that his unique T-shirts would appeal as much to locals as they do tourists.
“I guess I thought of them as more ‘resort and destination wear’ for visitors,” he says, “but residents really love the designs. They represent a great slice of island life that we can all relate to.”
The T-shirts are made from high quality fabric and come in all different colors and sizes, with images and wording that cover everything from diving to the flora and fauna of the Cayman Islands.
“I’ve had great feedback from everyone who’s bought them,” says Franks, “and ‘cos people keep buying them, we keep making them!”
Cayman Made shirts are sold at the So-Chlo shop in Bodden Town, next to Chester’s Fish Fry, or see designs at the Facebook page for Cayman Made. Tel: 938-3940
