We want to know the full story of our shirts. For the majority of our products we can trace back their journeys to the raw material. We are not 100% there as it is often difficult to trace back the origin of the raw materials such as cotton or linen. We are working on this to provide you with full transparency.
Every supplier gets a alphabetical code from us. You will find a sequence of codes on each care tag of your shirt. This code will tell you more about your shirts journey.
