DC Themed Tees, Hats and Mask; Shea Butter Products at New Pop Up
A new pop up is now open for business at the District Wharf that will include DC based companies Bailiwick Clothing and Shea Yaleen. Located at 49 District Square, at the site of the former Milk Bar location, Bailiwick Clothing Pop-Up featuring Shea Yeleen, will provide Bailiwick’s classic tee shirts and apparel and Shea Yeleen’s line of shea butter products.
Bailiwick Clothing, owned and operated by brothers JC and Jeff Smith, creates apparel and messaging that reflects the local energy of the nation’s capital. Printed on Bailiwick’s classic hats, tees, and masks, are DC’s 202 area code, District of Champions, advocacy for DC to become the 51st state, and “Chocolate City,” a local moniker made famous in the 1970s by funk band Parliament. The hats and tees have been seen and worn by several high profile athletes and personalities, even including DC mayor Murial Bowser.
“We will be selling many of our popular shirts, hats, and other products, but we’re also going to use this store as a ‘test lab’ to test launch potential products and try some different styles and colors,” said Bailiwick owner, JC Smith. “We plan to have some products exclusive to this store that you can’t find online or anywhere else, and plan to offer special deals on many of our ‘sample sale’ and one-off products,” he said to Wharf Life DC.
Shea Yeleen is a nonprofit social enterprise locally created in 2005 by Rahama Wright. Her business is dedicated to empowering women in West Africa and the United States through the production, sale and use of shea butter products. Shea Yeleen’s products are high quality, organic, fair trade skin care products and utilizing a sales strategy that incorporates women’s micro enterprise development.
