Hand painted Artist shirt in hemp
Hand painted artist shirt in organic hemp and organic cotton fabric, made to order with your choice of paint colour.
Welcoming our new Artist shirt! A roomy shirt hand painted by Suzie on a gorgeous organic hemp and organic cotton fabric.
The shirt has a cute small collar, hidden buttons down the front and buttoned cuffs. The sides of this shirt have been scooped up so it can be worn untucked as well as tucked.
Our aim with this shirt is to make a unique piece that is easily layered, comfortable and stands the test of time.
We hand make each shirt in our workshop in Nottingham, England. Each item is made-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.
55% certified organic hemp, 45% organic cotton
We make our shirt from a hemp and organic cotton fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified as free from harmful chemicals. Organic cotton is more sustainable that regular cotton because the process is based on long-term thinking. Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic insecticides, fungicides, herbicides or fertilisers. Farmers maintain healthy soil through crop rotation, preventing the loss of nutrients into water bodies and so avoiding water pollution and the need for artificial fertilisers. Organic cotton farming also uses significantly less water than ordinary cotton, whereby farmers rely mainly on rainwater. Find out more about organic farming at the Textile Exchange!
Hemp has fantastic sustainability credentials as it has a high yield (twice as much fibre as flax that is used to make linen) and it has a short growing period such that it can be planted 4 times in a year. Moreover, it returns up to 70% of the nutrients used back into the soil. As if this wasn’t enough, it also requires little water, reduces pests and doesn’t need fertilisers or pesticides. To top it off, hemp is the most carbon negative crop, absorbing more carbon than it produces!
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper.
