Designs from the favela hills.

14 days spent in the favela „Morro do Papagaio“ – equipped with cameras, laptops, pens, pieces of paper and heads full of ideas. They brought the first official ARTHELPS t-shirt collection to life.

Feel the favela in this special ARTHELPS feature: Pedro, a kid from the Morro do Papagaio favela, talks about his personal dreams, ideas and shares his very own stories about life in a Brazilian slum. We documented his thoughts and merged them with our video footage from deep within the Morro do Papagaio favela.

Cutting, painting, drawing, making a mess and blowdrying – ARTHELPS spent two weeks experimenting with young creatives at the favela in Belo Horizonte, lots of different materials and colours were used. The team created facinating motives which went on to be at the heart of our first t-shirt collection.
