Just wanted to point out a fantastic yet simple design mini trend we've noticed in the Women's World Cup - patterned sleeves.

The New Zealand team or the Football Ferns proudly adds the subtle photo-realistic fern bristles to their famous all black stylings.

For the the Steel Roses or the Chinese team, yellow lines like bursting rays of sun adorn the sleeves, using a similiar template as the Manchester City home or Tottenham away jersey.

Not much needs to be said about the Nigerian or Super Falcons' kit. Sporting the same design as the men's, the modernised 90's throwback kit is one of the most popular in recent time. Covered in an eye catching, vibrant but not over done pattern with a monochromatic scheme for the sleeves.

Banyana Banyana or the South African team launched their innaugral campaign with a distinct look of interchanging thick and thin lines - it's a simple way to stand out. 

The AKU design team love trying new patterns and we take requests! Check out the seigaiha or wave pattern Kui put on the sleeve for the Samurais, to keep with their customised Japanese theme. Our popular Rivaldo Template has a sleeve that's just the right amount of bold. 

PS. Final mention to the Matildas who have valiantly bowed out of their World Cup campaign, losing in penalties in what many are saying is the best game of the tournament so far. Their kit was designed exclusively for the women's team, a unique and dynamic take on urban meets outback. You've done Australia proud! We hope to see more of them soon.
