Details - Sunwashed t-shirt


Family owned organic cotton farm for over 100 years

A little bit of History:

The cotton used to make our range of washed t-shirts comes from the fields of a old American family who has been growing cotton in Texas for more than 100 years. The grandfather of the current farmer, broke out prairie grass to plant cotton in the rich soil. They maintain this fertility with organic farming practices which include crop rotations and enhancing the habitat for beneficial insects. Nothing synthetic is added and nothing is taken out except cotton. From this cotton, we make organic tee shirts which are the fruit of these North American lands.

Our cotton was grown on certified organic farms. They have been certified organic by the Texas Department of Agriculture since 1992. This USA organic standards require a 3 year chemical free farming period before being allowed to be "certified organic". The cotton is planted in mid-May and harvested after frost in November.

The harvested cotton is ginned in a certified organic gin and then shipped to a certified mill in North Carolina for spinning into yarn. The yarn is also knitted, finished and sewn in the Carolinas. Our products have a pedigree as we can tell you when and where they were planted and trace their development into a finished product.

To give a faded look to our t-shirts, we only use low impact pigment and non toxic dyes. The waste water is able to return to the city treatment plants. The pigment dyes will not be uniform as with fiber reactive dyes so you will see color variations within the t-shirt, each being unique.

This range of washed t-shirts is 100% made in the USA with high organic and human standards which assures you a product with a very superior value and quality that you will be proud to wear for many years.

Our t-shirts are made by American workers being paid a fair and lawful wage. This Texan cotton is "good for man and good for the land" as these practices improve our environment and create jobs for people in local rural.
