Brothers Notes: Kopfkino, German for 'head cinema' is a charming reference to the cinema that is played out in your head when fantasizing. Made from soft combed cotton, make this your lazy days T-shirt.

Idioma, derives its name from the Spanish for language. Phrases from around the world focusing on freedom, exploration and nature adorn Idioma’s collection and are accompanied by playful illustrations.

environmental impact

The use of organic cotton (Global Organic Textile Standard-certified) protects the environment and also farmers who may suffer ill health when coming into contact with the intensive fertilisers and pesticides used in conventional cotton production.

The organic cotton this T-shirt is made from was planted and harvested by hand, in a region where cotton farming in predominantly rain fed.

Factory where the T-shirt is cut and sewn is powered entirely by renewable energy (most of which comes from 30 massive wind turbines).

This t-shirt was screen printed using plastisol inks. Most commercial screen printers use plastisol inks, which are easy to use and last well. However, plastisol inks often contain PVC and phthalates that can be harmful to the environment. Idioma use Rutland® Screen Print Inks which are certified phthalate free and fully compliant with environmental regulations but do contain PVC.
