This epic promo tee is dedicated to Bambu Rolling Papers circa 1980s. It's aged beautifully after all this time, preserving that old school magic for years to come. Features double sided print, vibrant graphics, and a lovely poly cotton blend.

Bambu has roots dating back to 1764, making it one of the World's 1000 Oldest Companies. They didn't always make rolling papers though, Bambu was originally producers of Bible paper. As cigarette papers started gaining popularity in Europe, the company shifted its focus to compete in the tobacco market.

Bambu's popularity in America can be traced back to as early as the 1900s, appearing in numerous forms of pop culture such as TV, movies, and ad campaigns. Cheech and Chong spoofed their iconic logo for their Big Bambu album cover art in 1972. Notorious BIG, A Tribe Called Quest, and Method Man are among dozens of musicians who have referenced Bambu in their works. They've even inspired books like Pot Culture.

The "Just Say No" culture of the 80s slowed Bambu's advertising a bit, but the people's love for the brand was unwavering and some relics from the era still exist- like this 1980s t-shirt! The rolling papers never left store shelves and continue to be big sellers today.

Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. Double sided print.
