Does your clothing require special care?
The organic cotton, bamboo, and hemp fabrics used in our clothing are very delicate compared to non-organic clothing. Please follow the care instructions provided on the shirt for best results. For detailed care instructions please click here.
What is organic cotton?
By definition, it is cotton that is grown, harvested and processed without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. In addition, Certified Organic Cotton is free from genetically modified organisms (GMO) material, radiation or other artificial intervention.
What makes bamboo and hemp so special?
Bamboo’s smooth and round structure of its fibers give bamboo clothing its soft and non-irritating feel, even to sensitive skin. Hemp on the other hand softens with each washing. It is said that “hemp doesn’t wear out, it wears in.” Please visit our ‘About Us-The Clothing’ page for more information.
Are any chemicals used in the screenprinting process?
The simple answer is yes. More specifically, in one process of the printing called discharging. When printing any water based inks on dark fabrics, the process of discharging the fabric is needed to remove the dyes so the ink may be absorbed by the material. One of the chemicals used in this process bleach, albeit a very small amount. Bleach being one of the more reactive chemicals, is stored properly and used in a controlled environment.
Where are your clothes made?
Our clothes are made in various areas to ensure the best fibers are used. We’ve worked hard to ensure our partners in manufacturing share our values and provide a good workplace for all employees. We place an emphasis on working with people we trust. All overseas factories are third-party audited using the BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) Monitoring system, which is based on the labor standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO). You can read more about the BSCI at www.bsci-eu.org.
