‘Look to Africa, when a black king shall be crowned for the day of deliverance is at hand!’
So said Marcus Garvey Junior in the early 1900’s. This was his prophecy and one that was to come true with the birth of Rastafari a few years later. A religion whose ROOTS were born from the suffering of the underdog and the underclass.
Hawkins & Joseph know all about being the underdog of course, but every dog has it’s day and our day has arrived. As we march on we’ll march on in STYLE, as our classic ROOTS polo shirt proves. The vibrancy of the gold and green matched with the heart of the lion from within that roars with pride.
“Better Must Come” was the cry from the downtrodden people of Jamaica all those years ago. Our ROOTS range is respectfully dedicated to those people and the millions like them across the globe.
