Brothers notes: Idioma's new ethical sweatshirt takes its name from the Greek word for "Earth". In 100% Organic Cotton, this sweat is truly from "Gaia", reflecting the strength and creativity of our natural world in its style and durability as a timeless piece of clothing. The central graphic of colour and direction gives a sense of the Earth's importance and the need to reflect this in the clothing we make and wear.

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.
