Kiriko is telling stories with its new Kiriko Printed Momotaro Tee in Aku-Iro. Not just any story, mind you, but the Japanese legend of Momotaro. The tale, as depicted on Kiriko’s nicely designed new 100% cotton USA-made graphic tee, follows the journey of a boy born out of a peach. The boy, whose immaculate conception under the guardianship of an older couple unable to carry children, grows into a Japanese superhero of sorts.
After developing superhuman strength and wisdom, Momotaro is eventually called to defeat a neighboring enemy of Japan that stole and abducted citizens of Japan, but he doesn’t have to go alone – A dog, a monkey, and a pheasant join Momotaro. Evil is defeated by these warriors, with peace and fortune being returned to Japan with their arrival home, and now you can rock the Kiriko-made shirt and regale the legend to all of those who stare at your shirt.
