Despite the difficulties, designer Idania del Rio decided to set up her own clothing brand in 2015. Today, Clandestina is a thriving international business, serving trendy locals, tourists and, now, overseas customers.

You can now browse the website to shop for a selection of t-shirts. Each of the designs deals with a different issue, such as the campaign for better LGBTQ rights in Cuba.
