Mala (麻辣) Unisex T-shirt
This T-shirt is for those who are as obsessed with mala as we are. 麻, or "má," refers to the numbing of Sichuan pepper and 辣, or "là," to the burn of chili peppers. So 麻辣 represents the tingle and thrill of Sichuan cuisine.
Your friends can't read Chinese characters? It's the perfect excuse to introduce them to the defining flavors of Sichuan food while at the same time helping us spread the word about where they can get those flavors. The mala characters are featured on the front of this black T-shirt, while The Mala Market logo runs across the back.
This Next Level Ideal Heavyweight Crew is 100 percent cotton. It features a drop shoulder and relaxed fit—not too tight, not too boxy. Pre-shrunk, with unisex sizing, it runs true to size. The T-shirt is screen-printed with water-based inks, which are better for the environment, feel softer and last longer than traditional Plastisol inks.
(Fongchong is wearing a medium, which is more of a tunic on her extra-small frame, and her 6'1" dad is wearing a large.)
Material: 100% cotton; 8 ounces; water-based inks
