    Fun fact

    The world's most expensive shirt is a $250,000 one made from 3kg of gold. The Indian jeweller who created it was inspired by old images of Indian kings wearing suits of armour. We personally think the idea of "gold" is subjective - learning to make shirts with your very own hands is priceless!
