Fabric woven in Portugal
Blending organic cotton and upcycled marine plastic polyester creates a fabric that has the best features of both yarns.
The SEAQUAL Initiative recycled polyester comes from a collaboration between local communities, ﬁshermen and non-government organisations to help clean our oceans and raise awareness of issue of marine litter.
The SEAQUAL Initiative upcycles marine litter into the polyester yarn in our Eco Tech Cotton. The materials are traceable, and the SEAQUAL® YARN is certified. To find out more about the huge task they are undertaking see The SEAQUAL Initiative.
The Cotton in our Eco Tech Cotton is GOTS certified. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. To find out more see Global Organic Textile Standard.
The fabric is OEKO-TEX100 certified.

When caring for your clothes please do not over wash them. We trust your judgement. Wash them on cold or as low a temperature as you can. These small changes will not only give your clothing a longer life but also reduce energy usage.
Wash at 30ºC or cold. Dry flat. Cool iron. Do not dry clean.
