The new Brazil kit for 2012/13 celebrates Jeitinho Brasileiro – 'The Brazilian way' – the spirit that encompasses the resilient, creative and innovative approach that has helped make Brazil such at successful footballing nation.
The fabric of the new shorts is made with 100 percent recycled polyester, while the fabric of the jerseys is made with at least 96 percent recycled polyester. Kits are made using an average of 13 recycled plastic bottles.
The new kit marks a return to tradition with a classic, authentic design that recognizes the country's glorious football history.
The shirt boasts a clean yellow body and a classic V-neck collar with a thin green trim. The shirt also features deep green cuffs, which can be turned over to reveal the rallying cry of Nascido Para Jogar Futebol ('Born to Play Football') written in the style of Pichacao, a distinctive form of urban graffiti.
Printed on the inside of the back of the neck is a graphic by Brasilian artist Don Torelly, depicting an outline of the Brasilian federation's crest containing the Southern Cross, a constellation of stars that was seen over Rio de Janeiro when the Brazilian republic was founded in 1889.
The design of the bold green numbers on the shirts is inspired by the numbers on Brazil's national bank notes.
