Black Cropped Sleeve Sweater
Know The Origin
Kate wears a size S and is 5'9 in height.
Material: 100% organic cotton, Fairtrade certified.
All of the cotton is Fairtrade certified and sourced from Fairtrade producers. Fairtrade means fairer trading conditions and opportunities for cotton producers in developing countries to invest in their businesses and communities for a sustainable future. Visit www.info.fairtrade.net.
Taking care of me:
- Wash me at 30°
- Air dry only (tumble drying creates 75% of the carbon footprint of a garment. Let's look after the planet - it does give us a lot after all).
Organic cotton care:
Expect 5% shrinkage on first wash.
'Normal' cotton is treated with a huge number of chemicals to reduce heat shrinkage. Our Organic cotton has no nasty chemicals, which is kind to your skin, however, a high heat wash will cause an additional 5% shrinkage. Organic cotton will last longer with proper care, as it's not exposed to the weakening, harsh chemicals that 'normal' cotton is.
The earth be like, thank you.
