Ethical t-shirts & sweatshirts

t-shirt origin, printed in Montreal, made in USA

ORGANIC AND RECYCLED FIBERS

Because it is time to change the current clothing production methods to prioritize environmentally friendly techniques, we have chosen to offer you a high-end collection of eco-sustainable t-shirts. These are only made from natural, organic and / or recycled fibers. The durability of our clothes is also crucial, which is why we have chosen a superior and extra soft quality of fabric.

 

100% ORGANIC COTTON  

RECYCLED FIBERS (65% RECYCLED COTTON AND 35% RPET CERTIFIED RECYCLED POLYESTER)

MIXED FIBERS (50% ORGANIC COTTON AND 50% RPET CERTIFIED RECYCLED POLYESTER)

GOTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC COTTON

Our 100% organic cotton fabric is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. It therefore respects clear and transparent ecological and social criteria. GOTS is the leading global textile processing standard for organic fibers, supported by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. This yarn was made and imported from India.

RECYCLED FIBERS

To avoid pushing for the constant over-production of new textile fibers, but rather to encourage the circular economy, we have also chosen to use recycled fabrics. The polyester of our t-shirts in 100% recycled fibers, is made from post consumer plastic bottles and is RPET (Recycled PolyEthylene Terephthalate) certified. Our fully recycled yarn was made in Mexico and the one mixing organic cotton and recycled polyester, comes from India.

DESIGN

For each new collection, we like to collaborate with different artist-graphic artists whose creative universe coincides with that of SWENN:

Fanch @metrosketcher

Grofab @grofabtattoo

Miren @miren_art_de_pique

The screen printing is then done by hand in a Montreal workshop.

MANUFACTURE

After much research, we were able to find a local manufacturer of high quality, eco-friendly t-shirts and sweatshirts. The complete tailoring (knitting the fabric, dyeing, cutting, sewing) is done in a small factory located on Long Island in the State of New York (USA).

LABELLING PACKAGING

Our embroidered woven labels are sewn on the t-shirts by hand, in a workshop based in Montreal. Our plastic packaging used to ship the parcels are recyclable and made in Toronto.
