Fit: Regular fit
Good quality basic t-shirt made from super soft organic cotton.
Our Brothers We Stand plain t-shirts are proudly made in Bangladesh. The manufacture is overseen by a sourcing agent who help emerging designers source sustainably and ethically. Our t-shirts were cut and sewn by one of four factories the agent works closely with in Dhaka, Bangladesh. These factories have been selected because they are amongst the best in the country. The agent has its own team on the ground in Dhaka who visits the factories daily to monitor working conditions and ensure that nothing is subcontracted out to un-regulated factories.
In addition to these policies each of the factories is independently audited by the Fair Wear Foundation and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard).
A bright future for the Bangladeshi garment industry - Flags flying outside one of the sourcing agencies Bangla partners.
- Use of organic cotton means that pickers are not exposed to harmful chemicals.
- Our basic t-shirts are made from 100% organic cotton. The GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certificate means that all stages of production from growing to knitting and sewing of the t-shirt meet organic standards and don’t use any harmful chemicals.
- The printed label inside the neck was printed using water based textile inks. We used Permaset Aqua inks which are the most environmentally friendly inks on the market and passed the Oekotex Class 1 standard with 60% to spare!
Areas for development
Our sourcing agent visits the factories producing the Brothers We Stand plain t-shirts frequently to follow up on corrective action plans from Fair Wear Foundation audit reports. Gradually increasing wages and reducing overtime are issues included in the discussions though they remain challenges to the factories.
