"THE HANDS", as many people refer them as, is what started it all in 2007. The shirts have handprints on the front and the "Exposed" logo on the back.
The design was created by Victor Rios and then conceptualized to give a portion of the proceeds to breast cancer awareness in light of his grandmother having been a breast cancer survivor. Unfortunately two years after the clothing line was created she passed away. Gratefully though, she was able to see the design, get a kick out of it, and praise it.
The Hands symbolize protection and self-examination. Its edgy and hip design allows women of all ages to enjoy its expression and turn a few heads, all while supporting a great cause.
LIMITED EDITION GRAPHIC Ts. The New Designs Consist of "Binoculars", "Survivor Logo",
and "Survivor Word Cloud"
"Binoculars" is meant to be fun and inspire all woman to perform self-examinations and keep up on annual check ups. "Early Detection Saves Lives" and Victor has learned this first hand through all of the individuals he has met since creating Exposed and becoming active in Breast Cancer Awareness.
"Survivor Logo" is a spin off of the Survivor TV series logo. It is meant to be fun and inspire all woman with Breast Cancer to be Strong, Hopeful, and Believing. The crowd of woman symbolizes support and the flowers and stars are pretty.
"Survivor Word Cloud" was created by Victor and inspired by all the survivor stories he has had the pleasure to hear. The cloud represents several repetitive words that have described how they kept fighting the battle against breast cancer and won the fight and live to tell the story. Every story Victor has heard ends with a "Thank you" towards his efforts, so this is Victor's way of saying, "Your welcome. I will not stop. You can survive."
