ORGANIC COTTON GOTS CERTIFIED
We use GOTS-certified organic cotton: these four letters mean a lot for you and the planet. Our cotton pieces are made from hand-picked, chemical-free organic cotton. It is widely regarded as some of the softest and most durable cotton in the world. The GOTS standard also guarantees that the people producing the fabric are paid standard living wages and treated with respect. We are using it for our T-shirt TS1 and tank TK1.

 

RECYCLED INTERLOCK
Our Portuguese recycled polyester is GRS certified. It is made from post-consumer waste that would otherwise end up in landfills. Our interlock has the tightest weave and gives the smoothest surface and finest hand. It is breathable, lightweight, extremely soft and absorbent. We are using this fabric for our T-shirt TS2, tank TK2 and TK3.

The major manufacturing difference between recycled polyester from PET plastic bottles and virgin polyester is its impact on the environment. The production of recycled polyester requires 2/3 less energy and about 90% less water than virgin polyester production. Recycling PET plastic bottles to create fabrics prevents discarded plastic going to landfills. Using more recycled polyester reduces dependence on petroleum (as no new petroleum is required to produce PET plastic bottles). The performance, durability and high-strength values of PET are the same as that of virgin polyester but with lower environmental impact.
