SanSe 2020 Limited Edition T-shirt: “Botar la Salsa por la Ventana"
Commemorative t-shirt created for SanSe 2020, graphics by local artist Pedro Medina Leandry. Design inspired by Facto’s Shing-A-Ling bar. The window resembles Old San Juan streets as you approach La Factoria and feel the salsa from a distance.
