To buy a long sleeve in support of an independent encyclopedia is no longer possible.
In July, the independent online encyclopedia “Wikipedia” announced the release of clothing with its own symbolism. The collection, created in association with the American independent brand Advisory Board Crystals, included one thing–a long sleeve with the inscription Internet Master on its back.
Longsleeve of ‘Wikipedia’ went on sale on August 15. However, it will not be possible to buy it anymore–the whole size range was sold out in a few hours on the same day.
Revenue from the sale of the merchant will be sent to the Wikimedia Foundation, which supports the encyclopedia and its projects and exists on donations. “Knowledge is power, and awareness is the guarantee of survival. Help us leave knowledge free,” the creators of the collection say.
