The Equilíbrios Camisetas Promocionais group together with RFCC decided to help people struggling with cancer. In general, these organizations have already repeatedly declared themselves, taking part in various activities aimed at informing as many people as possible about what cancer is and how to defeat it. Now they decided to attract public attention by setting a new record, which was officially entered into the Guinness Book of Records.
This is the world’s largest T-shirt, made in a city in Brazil. It took about 11 thousand hours to make this thing. Several hundred people worked to make the T-shirt, which is 93 meters long and 63 meters wide. For comparison, you can take a look at the sizes of a regular embroidered T-shirt here. The easiest way to understand the scale is by imagining a standard football field, which can be completely covered with this wardrobe item. We also managed to measure the total weight of the T-shirt, which was 4 thousand 500 kilograms.
In the process of sewing, a fabric was used that is half cotton. What did the second half consist of? You might be surprised, but we are talking about recycled plastic containers from which, thanks to new technologies, you can make fabric.
To fix the record, an official representative of the Guinness Book of Records was invited. He helped the founders of the stock with a certificate that their T-shirt is indeed the largest one that has ever been sewn on our planet.
After the end of all the ceremonies, the giant canvas was cut into 10 thousand ordinary T-shirts. They will be sold to everyone, and the money received will go to the fight against cancer. Thus, this is one of those cases when the record turned out to be not only bright, but also useful.
Representatives of the Guinness Book of Records always note the importance of social pressure in such events. When people see something impressive and at the same time remember the problems that need to be solved, they are much more willing to help those who really need it. It is for this reason that this giant T-shirt will be more useful than the many cancer videos and billboards.
