I’ve got here an awesome news for my fellow Tee collectors.
Global apparel retailer UNIQLO today announces the global launch of four new designs for PEACE FOR ALL, the charity T-shirt project from UT (UNIQLO T-shirt). This latest collection features special graphics from collaborators with a close connection to UNIQLO such as Peanuts as well as a design with an original photo taken by the world-renowned film director Wim Wenders.
As with earlier collections, UNIQLO parent company Fast Retailing will continue to donate 100% of profits from the sale of the T-shirts (equivalent to 20% of the selling price) to three international aid organizations – UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, Save the Children, and Plan International – who provide assistance to people impacted by poverty, discrimination, violence and conflict.
UNIQLO first introduced the PEACE FOR ALL project on June 17, 2022, with the concept that a T-shirt can help make the world a better place. As of September, a total of more than 484,000 T-shirts have been sold, raising more than US $1M (calculation period through August 31).
So far, 20 collaborators who support the project’s aim of “praying sincerely for world peace and taking action” have volunteered their time and effort to create one-of-a-kind, original design T-shirts.
The five new UTs will be available for purchase from Friday, December 16th.

PEACE FOR ALL New Collection Collaborator Comments and Profiles
WIM WENDERS (Film Director)
I never saw more horizon in my life than on that day in the West-Australian desert. And at the very end of that road, I was sure, behind the horizon, we could only find a peaceful future.

UNIQLO believes that T-shirts have the power to express the ideas of the wearer, as well as elicit empathy and spread messages broadly. To help create a peaceful future, UNIQLO actively engages with individuals who support the PEACE FOR ALL project and dedicates space in its stores around the world to remind customers of all the people who need assistance. Anyone can join the call for peace by wearing their favorite PEACE FOR ALL UT, and UNIQLO looks forward to a successful continuation of the project.
And that’s it for this update.
’til next time!
