A French Navy organic cotton t-shirt with rolled sleeves. This versatile tee is hyperallergenic, having been made using the best quality soft organic cotton. Wear daytime or nighttime as a pyjama top.
You can choose your size based on how neat you want the top to look - I prefer the tidier look, whereas my daughter (aged 12) goes for the oversized look. For nightwear, team up with our range of fairtrade pyjama bottoms. Available in white.
100% Organic Ring-Spun Combed Cotton. Machine wash at 30 degrees as standard. Avoid washing with items with adornments that could snag the cotton, like buttons and zips.
Sizing is small (UK 8-10), medium (UK 10-12), large (UK 12-14) and x-large (UK 14-16). Choose your size from the dropdown menu.
Guvnors Tried & Tested
Whilst not quite an everyday essential, I wear this top enough to count as a staple. It has such a great shape, and I wear one as a pyjama top and the other as a t-shirt.
Why Organic Cotton Clothing?
No chemicals are used in the growth of the plants, versus the high pesticide use on traditional cotton crops (the most pesticide dependant crop in the world!).
By avoiding pesticide use, workers and farmers escape the chronic health problems and fatalities common in non-organic farming. Wildlife, on which pesticide use has devastating effects, is unharmed and even supported in organic farming (read more here).
There is significantly lower water usage - 1kg of organic cotton uses 7,000 litres versus an eye-boggling 29,000 litres for the equivalent in conventional cotton.
Our organic tops enjoy multiple accrediations, including membership of the Fairwear Foundation which ensures improved and fair pay and working conditions.
End of Life
The joy of organic cotton is that it will biodegrade without leaving any nasty, pesticide tainted residue. These tops can be worn many times, before being downgraded to cloths, and finally the compost heap or fabric recycling.
