At Dirt Squirrel Apparel, we love being a part of a widely diverse, unique and creative community. We get to experience different walks of life, seeing how people thrive, while also seeing barriers specific to our many different community members’ success. While most cases are unique, there are some overarching things we can do both as a company, and as a collective community. This starts by spreading awareness and increasing knowledge. Spreading love and rainbows also helps, y’all! For these reasons, we created our Rainbow Pride Collection!
We designed our rainbow pride collection with one thing in mind, as a way for us to give back to community members while providing our customers with a sickening product that they would be proud to wear! Through this, we were able to incorporate a monetary donation from the sale of every item in our rainbow pride collection. These proceeds directly benefit Rainbow Refugee, which is a local Vancouver, BC charity. Rainbow Refugee provides support and helps asylum seekers safely relocate to Canada. You can learn more about them here. Please note: We are not affiliated with Rainbow Refugee in any way – we just love and support their mission!
We offer 5 different rainbow orientated products as a part of our collection. Starting with our Rainbow Puff shirts! Each shirt is emblazoned on the chest with a puffed (3D like) rainbow. Yep, all seven colours! These use a soft cotton and offer a subtle way to showcase your pride while supporting a great cause! This item is available in long sleeve and short sleeve options and can be viewed here.
Now this is where we get real about comfort and LOVE. Splashed across the entire back of our oversized crewneck are the words ‘LOVE IS LOVE’ and this sentiment could not be truer. Each elbow has a bright red heart, and splashed across the front is a large, bright rainbow. Each of these graphics are raised, puff style giving this sweater a unique and fun look. You can view this sweater here.
Our black 5 panel dad hat features a small rainbow icon embroidered front and centre. This is a sleek look for those sunny days while showcasing a fabulous rainbow as stylishly as possible. This hat features an adjustable strap at the back and logo’d interior. You can view the Rainbow Dad Hat here.
Last but definitely not least is one of our original bamboo hand fans. The Black Rainbow Fan has been a mainstay of our fan collection and fits perfectly into this Rainbow Pride Collection. Great for those hot days and pride filled activity destinations, this hand fan will *clack* and *thworp* its way to being one of your favourite summer accessories! You can view this fan here.
