  • Strong points


    - This shirt is made in China and Thought founder John Snare is proud that his suppliers are showing that it is possible to produce in China ethically. Thought (formerly known as Braintree) are committed to building relationships with their suppliers and do not switch factories from season to season. For the last 8 years they have worked with just five suppliers and built a strong relationship with them.

    - All suppliers are required to work to ensure that workers are safe, that they are paid a living wage and that they can work free from harassment. The factory making this shirt is visited 2-3 times a year by Thought’s own staff.


    - Hemp has very impressive environmental credentials – it requires much less water than cotton and naturally outcompetes weeds so doesn’t require pesticides. Additionally hemp grows very quickly and yields are high, an important consideration given that global food prices are dependant to a large extent on the amount of land available for food production.

    - The organic cotton is GOTS certified (Global Organic Textile Standard). This is a high level standard that verifies that all stages of production from growing to processing meet organic standards and don’t use any harmful chemicals. 

    - Thought sources raw materials for their shirts in the same geographic area as the shirts are made. This cuts down on C02 emissions from unnecessary transport.

    Areas for development

    The buttons on Thought’s shirts are faux coconut husk and made from synthetic polymers. On the positive side this makes for a durable button which extends the life of the shirt. However polymer products require significant fossil fuel inputs to create and are also slow to decompose at the end of their life.
