    The cotton is organic meaning cotton pickers are not exposed to harmful chemicals.

    Both the cotton ginning factory and the factory where the T-shirt is cut and sewn are members of the Fair Wear Foundation, a high level ethical accreditation. The T-shirt is printed and hand finished in Plymouth.  

    Environmental

    The organic cotton is plucked in Ahmedebad, North-Western India, and transported to a local ginning factory by camel. Both the ginning factory and the factory where the T-shirt is cut and sewn are powered by Vestas wind turbines. This T-shirt was shipped from Tuticorin, India to Felixstowe, UK, avoiding the use of air freight.

    Rapanui’s supply chain transparency has really impressed us.

    The cotton is Global Organic Textile Standard certified and whilst this is a very high level certification it does not currently measure working conditions of cotton pickers. However, the fact that the farms are inspected for environmental purposes gives the pickers some measure of security.

    Cotton is a very water hungry crop and as water shortages intensify there is a need to explore alternative fibres.
