Painted organic cotton shirt in white and blue
Hand painted ruffle shirt in lightweight 100% organic cotton sateen
We make our hand painted shirt to-order from a lightweight 100% organic cotton sateen. The design has a high neck with a collar and ties instead of buttons. It has a ruffled bodice and short ruffled sleeves. We hand paint the fabric with a bold and playful pattern using a wash-safe fabric paint.
We hand make each blouse in our workshop in Nottingham, England. Each item is made-to-order, minimising fabric wastage.

Organic cotton is more sustainable than regular cotton because the process is based on long-term thinking. Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic insecticides, fungicides or fertilisers. Healthy soil is instead maintained through crop rotation. This prevents the loss of nutrients into water bodies and avoids both 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!
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper.
A great resource on sustainable fashion is the Fashion Revolution, including information on what to consider when choosing where and what to buy.
As a brand that value sustainability, we also strive to post informative content on sustainable matters on our Instagram account @fordandguy
