Our T-shirts are made of 100% cotton that we source exclusively from the region in order to produce more sustainably and support local communities. For our embroidery work we use only the best quality rayon threads from Madeira in Germany, these are very durable and are known for their shine. The printing is done using water based -biodegradable inks imported from Switzerland, which have a less heavy metal content and are more environmentally friendly and more skin friendly for kids with allergies.
By producing locally, we do not only want to create employment but also aim to be a fair employer. We are therefore a member of the World Fair Trade Association WFTO and therefore adhere to the 10 fair trade principles: Opportunities for disadvantages producers, Transparency & Accountability, Fair Trade practices, Fair Payment, No Child and Forced Labour, No Discrimination, Good Working Conditions, Capacity Building, Promote fair Trade and Respect for the Environment.
