Vara Barn has teamed up with Alba of Denmark to help support the
The Caribbean Tree Planting Project (CTPP).
We are very proud to support Alba with this project and we will donate all our profit from the tree-shirt collection to CTPP.
The Caribbean Philanthropic Alliance, is an organization operating in regions of the Caribbean vulnerable to climate change, to help raise funds to fight the effects of hurricanes, earthquakes, flooding, raising sea levels, economic and social issues… One of the organization’s largest mission was planting one million trees in 21 Caribbean countries between 2020 and 2021 with its Caribbean Tree Planting Project.
Their major project currently, led by Dr. Rosalea Hamilton, Chair, is to plant a million trees across the Caribbean within the next 12 months.

's founder got the inspiration for the tree-shirt collection from St. Kitts and Nevis, two Islands in between between the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea known for cloud-shrouded mountains and beaches where the 400 year old baobab tree grows.
Baobab trees have a significant meaning for the region as it is one of the sacred trees of the Caribbean. The baobab tree, or as people call it “tree of life”, is a symbol of power, longevity, presence, strength, grace, life, and lots more.
By choosing this gigantic and well-respected tree as the print for this special collection, Majken aim to spread the message of unity and raise awareness around the importance of tree planting, not just in the Caribbean but all around the world.
Alba of Denmark is a new brand to us but it's very close to my heart. We have dressed our children in Alba for a long time and always admired Majken's retro and timeless designs.
We truly hope you do too..
