We are delighted to be adding nine new t-shirts from six great designers to our collection. Like our current shirts, they are ultra-sustainably produced. They are manufactured using the idea of a circular economy - each t-shirt is printed to-order to avoid waste stock and can be returned to Teemill at the end of its usage to be recycled in return for store credit.
The t-shirts are made from 100% organic cotton which is grown in India using natural fertilizer and rainwater irrigation. They are manufactured in a socially responsible way with 100% renewable energy used throughout the supply chain. SA8000 certified (Social Accountability audit) and GOTS certified.
Now, meet the designers!
