This is no ordinary T-Shirt. It has an incredibly soft texture, is hard wearing, very high quality and great fitted shape. Made from 70% sustainable Bamboo Viscose and 30% Organic Cotton.
We recognise that garment manufacturing is one of the most environmentally damaging and harmful industrial sectors on the planet, and take decisive and often pioneering steps towards addressing the many negative impacts. Starting with the sourcing of raw materials, the Company ensures full traceability of all fibres, choosing low impact cotton, bamboo viscose and 100% certified organic cotton.
Our supplier has been running a pro-active social responsibility programme as a member of Fair Wear Foundation since early 2006. All the Company’s manufacturing facilities are regularly audited for social compliance and are running active monitoring programmes in accordance with standards advocated by the International Labour Organisation, the Ethical Trading Initiative and other international bodies.
