Where does it come from?
It’s been created from 100% organic cotton, hand dyed a deep green and then block printed by hand with tortoises. The shirt is so soft as the cotton has been handspun and the fabric handwoven – a traditional process called Khadi. Handwoven fabrics are naturally more breathable which means that this tortoise shirt will keep your child lovely and cool while they play.
The farming, fabric production and tailoring has all been done by socially and environmentally focused organisations – from co-operatives, artisan groups and social enterprises. Each shirt comes with a code on the label so you can explore its life story – you can ‘meet’ the people involved and find out how they did it!
We have a range of sizes from age 4-11 and the shirt is a great all-year-rounder – simply put a long sleeved top underneath in cooler weather!
