Prompt: "PROMPT FOR JUNE 2021 WRITING CHALLENGE: What is your favourite thing you own?" by Jacque. Like this prompt? Write your own response here.

Target Language - English

My favorite property is a T-shirt. The T-shirt is indigo and made by a craftsman. The blue is deep and it is said that indigo dye works as an insect repellent. The T-shirt was quite expensive because it took time and effort to produce. However, the company's philosophy of this shirt is "We make clothes that can be used for 10 years.", which is antithesis for mass production and mass consumption society. I like to use one thing for a long time even though it's expensive. The indigo will change as time passes, and it'll make a special texture. It means the shirt turns to be unique for me.

Nice entry! Good for you for buying clothes which last a long time :)
That's also really cool that the indigo dye works as an insect repellant. Maybe I should get a T-shirt like that too!
