01/5 Longsleeve Organic Cotton
The navy 01/5 Longsleeve Organic Cotton – a light, long-sleeved T-shirt with a higher neckline made out of Piqué from 100% Organic Cotton. We thought about those 80ies polo-shirts and figured a way to make this fabric less sporty. Fits loose. The 01/5 Longsleeve Organic Cotton is one of our essentials and our model is 172 cm and a German size 34 wearing our size M. The sizes range from XS to XL – it is unisex.
ABOUT THE FABRIC
100% Organic Cotton, GOTS certified and made in Germany.
WHO MADE THIS LONGSLEEVE
Our 01/5 Longsleeve Organic Cotton is designed in Munich by our mastermind and fantastic tailor Sabine Dicklberger. The 01/5 Longsleeve Organic Cotton is produced by our manufacturing partner Studio U&N near Chemnitz in Germany.
WHAT IS SO GOOD ABOUT THIS LONGSLEEVE
The Material. Organic Cotton is a hero. The production does not require chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or defoliants, and the social impact improves the well-being of the farmers. Head over to our CONSCIOUS FASHION GUIDE for more information on Organic Cotton.
