Idioma Organic Cotton "Ya Rouhi" T-shirt

    • 100% Organic Cotton
    • Unique screen print by Seth Banks

    Fit: Regular fit  

    This design took its inspiration from the old Arabic saying ‘the soul travels at the speed of a camel’. Our thoughts meander to Morocco and a sun-drenched way of life where French and Arabic sings on the breeze. We hope this t-shirt encourages you to pay attention to your soul and take life a little slower.

    World language(s) phrases focusing on freedom, exploration and the natural world adorn Idioma’s collection and are accompanied by playful illustrations.

    Worker Conditions

    Idioma have partnered with a sourcing agent who help emerging designers source sustainably and ethically. This agent visit factories daily during production to monitor working conditions and ensure nothing is subcontracted out to un-regulated factories. Each of the factories is also independently audited by the Fair Wear Foundation and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).

    Sourcing Agent

    A bright future for the Bangladeshi garment industry - Flags flying outside one of the sourcing agencies Bangla partners.

    Idioma visit Doves Clothing who print their garments regularly during production and enjoy a close working relationship with them.

    Environmental impact

    Organic virgin cotton protects the environment and health of farmers from the damaging intensive fertilisers and pesticides conventionally used.

    Idioma’s sourcing partner encourage factories to employ strict waste control and use energy efficient machines.

    This t-shirt was screen printed with water based inks. Most commercial screen printers use plastisol inks which may contain PVC and phthalates that can be harmful to the environment.  

    AREAS FOR DEVELOPMENT

    As the sourcing agent do not own the factories and the factories also produce for other clients they do not have the power to determine worker pay. However the sourcing agency practices ‘open book’ accounting with suppliers to ensure that it pays enough for all workers to receive a living wage and educates factory management about the benefits of doing so (higher staff retention, less absenteeism, fewer quality issues, higher worker satisfaction, enhanced productivity).
