WE STARTED WITH THE PERFECT ORGANIC COTTON

ORGANIC PIMA COTTON GROWN IN PERU HAS THE LONGEST STAPLE – OR FIBER LENGTH – OF ANY COTTON IN THE WORLD. IT’S NEARLY TWICE AS LONG AS STANDARD COTTON.

THE RESULTING THREAD CREATES A FINISHED FABRIC THAT IS INCREDIBLY STRONG AND THAT RIVALS SILK IN SOFTNESS, SUPPLENESS, AND DRAPE.

FROM FARM TO FABRIC

To source the Organic Pima in our new Foundation Tee, we partnered with a company in Peru that vertically manages the entire production process – from the farm to the final product – and ensures that every step along the way meets both the Global Organic Textile Standard (G.O.T.S.) and FairTrade labor standards. Not only were they the first company in Latin America to be certified under the Global Organic Textile Standard (G.O.T.S.), but they have also taken it a step further by pioneering a program that helps local farmers transition from conventional to organic farming methods – a lengthy five-year process that cleanses the soil of toxins while teaching them about natural methods of fertilization and pest abatement. They now mentor more than 90 farmers in both Southern and Northern Peru.

BYE-BYE, SHRIVEL COLLAR

Not only did we use a ribbed collar that maintains its shape wash after wash, we also made a hidden seam you don't see or feel. \r\nAfter all, the best details are the ones you don't notice.

HANDCRAFTED

TO FINISH IT OFF, WE USE RAILROAD STITCHING ON SLEEVES AND THE HEM TO GIVE IT A SUBTLE BUT DISTINCT CHARACTER

We finished them with a nice non-toxic garment dye, resulting in a pre-shrunk, soft finish that only gets better with age.

Now available with Graphics and as plain Tees.

The resulting T-Shirt represents all the sustainable sourcing and design principles we founded this company on - that's why we named it THE FOUNDATION TEE
