Pine Green Detail Back Sweatshirt
Brand: Know The Origin
Marcus wears a size S and is 6”0 in height.
Material: 100% Fairtrade and Organic Cotton
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.
