This design is inspired by the most popular Vietnamese street food item: the Banh Mi!
The 13th Arrondissement is home to Paris’ large Chinese, Cambodian, and Vietnamese community. Mainly known as the “Chinatown” of Paris, full of small, hidden streets and high-rise buildings. This is a great place to find many Asian restaurants, especially Vietnamese pho houses and banh mi shops. Somehow along the years the Banh Mi became the most sought-after souvenir among Asians. People from all over Europe go to Paris and bring back some of these crisp Viet baguettes. A piece of nostalgia and Asian tradition. It’s a perfect fusion of Vietnamese and French culture. East meets West.

Be proud, wear this shirt, spread love always. Saranghae (사랑해)!
