The Chindit Badge Jade Sweatshirt by Disorder is a limited edition garment hand made by Disorder. This hoodie is inspired by a trip to Asia and in particular the atmospheric and spiritual city of Yangon, Myanmar. The Chindith is a mythical lion that always stands in pairs outside the entrance to any Buddhist Temple to protect it from evil spirits. In particular the Chindit Badge Hoodie references the ‘Chindits’, the Allied soldiers fighting in Burma during WW2. Who in turn were inspired by the Chindith, borrowing their name from the temple guardians found outside the entrance to every Buddhist temple. Every time I have gone to Burma/Myanmar I have always been fascinated and drawn to the Chindith, hopefully the wearer of this t-shirt may gain some protection from wearing it.
