In honor of Black History Month, Gap has released a limited-edition collection of T-shirts and accessories designed by artists who also happen to be employees of the brand.

The line includes creations by Courtney Minor, the director of consumer insights, general manager Tatiana Hill and Dwayne Dupréy, a graphic designer who oversees project management for store operations for Gap Inc. Pieces for men, women, teens and toddlers are now available on Gap.com through the end of February.

It’s all part of the Gap Collective, an ongoing series from the brand that “celebrates the spirit of activism and the energy of forward movement” by featuring artists from around the globe, according to the brand’s website.

Ranging from sizes XS to XXXL, the collection is size-inclusive. Highlights from the collection include a baseball hat and T-shirt featuring Afrocentric designs. The Gap Collective Black History Month Baseball Hat comes in three styles, including Tatiana Hill’s version, which celebrates the fearlessness and beauty of black women. Each hat retails for $20.

In addition to its new Black History Month collection, Gap Inc. joined Aurora James’ Fifteen Percent Pledge this month as an advocacy partner, making a commitment to ensure Black representation across its company. The company announced it will start with early empowerment programs, which include a focus on internships, externships, apprenticeships and trainings.
