Why do we love football? Because it is instinctive. If a ball comes rolling down the street you give it a punt. We love it for the same reason we fall in love. Because we simply don't know how to avoid it.
That's how our story began. Since an age too early to remember clearly we started chasing the ball through the dusty streets. Always wearing a football shirt with some name and number printed on its back. Our sporting heroes. We grew up with this passion but also with the realisation of how important it is not to allow for the inspiring examples from the past to be buried and forgotten in history. For those are examples and memories of glorious times, of proud achievements and of real life heroes that would inspire the future generations to follow in their footsteps and become the next Bulgarian football idols.
Just a piece of vintage clothing. That's all it is, really. Faded fabric, thin threads, out of fashion design, hand-sewn crest and someone's name or number on the back. But It's a time machine, too. Step into the nostalgic world of fond memories, vivid dreams and exciting treasures. It's just a piece of vintage clothing that tells a story so dear to our hearts. A story that we all know so very well and at the same time a story that we'll never mind hearing and experiencing one more time.
