Crowdfunding opened to support the idea/project of 2 refugees living in Portugal. The aim is to open one shop and sell inspiring and different t shirts.

"Quadrado - Urban Wear" is a t shirts and home decoration brand, thought and created by a group of  3 friends: one portuguese, one afeghan and one iraquian.

To the photos they make, they add famous quotes, creating inspiring and funny products. 

The idea is to make living. Help you to communicate through the things you wear. 

Nasir and Fadhil are asylum seekers in Portugal. The official help is not enough and the truth is that, being young, they both want an active life. This is the alternative: to create their own work.With help, that will be a reality. 

Some of the articles are already being sold online, on Facebook, but it will be possible to decrease the prices and the delivery time if they manage to buy a printer for these kind of products.

The dream will be completed with the opening of a small shop, where they can directly sell the t shirts and decoration articles, as well as interact with the clients.

Thank you so much to all of you!

About the author

Nasir Ahmadi, Afeghanistan, with Business Management Degree.

Fadhil Almasoode, Iraq, Football Player.

Helena Castro, Portugal, free lancer journalist.

They met in volunteering projects for refugees.

When Nasir arrived to Portugal, he had no one and no help. Using Facebook he met Helena. They shared house for almost 6 months. By the time he got his official support from the government, he got indepedent, finding his on place. 

Social networks also brought Fadhil and Helena together, but for professional reasons.  

They all became good friends and, together, created Quadrado, so they could all have a serious work, to have a purpose and one aim to fight for.  We all believe the integration is also made following this way.

The project is online for more than 6 months, selling, for the moment, t-shirts and home decoration products, all of them usinf famous quotes.

New collections, to celebrate Oporto city per example, will be coming soon.

And next year arabic and asian cultures will inspire new works.
