Is it time for transparency in your clothing collection? Do you know where your clothing is made of?
In this blog I introduce you to one of my favorite brands called Organic Basics, created in 2015 by four Danish guys with the intention to change the fashion industry. Sustainability does not stop at fair production, when after just a few months, it is back at the level of bulky waste, we cannot call it very sustainable. In the beginning, Organic Basics started making quality men’s underwear, consciously created with GOTS certified organic cotton, but now they are focused on more than that. In addition to production in Europe (i.e. as little transport as possible), good working conditions and sustainable materials are of great importance to them. Last week I had the opportunity to try two tee's, namely an Organic Cotton and a Silvertech one. Over the past year, I have decided for myself to invest in clothes from brands that make a difference. Organic Basics undoubtedly belongs to these. The tee's they offer are available in the most essential colours and are extremely comfortable to wear. For me, nothing beats the experience of a quality fabric and the appearance it brings with it. The question of where it comes from is therefore not unimportant to me. The Organic Cotton t-shirts are made in Turkey, to be precise Izmir. They the cotton that is used comes without toxic substances, pesticides, chemical fertilizer, and nasty chemicals. Next to their Cotton shirt they have the Silvertech tee's. What are they? As the name suggests, use is made of silver because it turns out that silver has historically been used as an antimicrobial piece of technology. The purpose of using silver in there basics is to prevent the need for frequent washing, and doing so helps reduce the environmental impact of a piece of clothing. Maybe you wonder how this substance feels? I can tell you, it feels soft, elastic and strong at the same time.
I myself have chosen a size bigger than I normally choose as I prefer a somewhat wider fit. However, this is not necessary as they are very true to fit.
The Organic Cotton tee is available in four colours: black, blue, grey and white. As for the Silvertech, it comes in the colors, white and black.
As most of you know, I believe that the packaging of products is very important. In other words, the whole experience. This is something they have certainly thought about at Organic Basics! Wow! Minimalistic, clear, and discerning is the first thing that comes to mind. Receiving your product will be even more of a party.
