We have just extended our promotional clothing range by offering organic cotton garments. These are supplied by London based Saf, who make clothing that is “made to exacting standards using quality organic cotton.”
We had a good look at their samples and I must say I’m extremely impressed by the quality. In fact, with the temperature hitting 32 degrees C in London today, I decided to ‘road-test’ a t-shirt, as I was starting to melt in a jacket and tie. What struck me was how soft and comfortable the ring-spun cotton was and a number of people commented on how nice they thought the t-shirt looked.
Indigo are committed to supporting etichally aware clothing manufacturers and we have always support the WRAP program, but Saf take things one step further with these fair trade, eco-friendly, tees and polo shirts. I think they will be popular with our private label clients as well as business who have CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policies. The other reason why I enthusiastic about their range is they come in colours other than ecru (natural cotton colour) and they come in womensâ€™ styles – both big plus points in my opinion. I would be interested to see if they produce a kids t-shirts, which I imagine may have a market in both the UK and Europe.
