ORGANIC COTTON (FAIR TRADE) 2006
are looking much better this year with far more choice in colour
range, style/fit and size variety available. Ethical Producers of
t-shirts tend to see gaining organic certification as the main
priority and have not yet gone for fair trade mark certification, we
will keep the site up to date on changes.
What we do is source and buy the blank shirts to print for you. We sell at festivals and events and via our web site and of course print wholesale custom orders for you!
You can buy from our range of designs wholesale and we are happy to quote for printing your design.
Some of our recent orders include an organic garden, vegan café, yoga group, festival crews, mums in Holland selling kids shirts etc.
LET US KNOW YOUR REQUIREMENTS:
|Tender Loving Care:
Baby sleepsuits, bodies, hats, long sleeve and
T-Shirts from 0-3 months, through kids sizes, women's fitted t-shirts
and up to 46”chest men's t-shirts, in one range. This is Ugandan
cotton, the farmers getting a premium price for their Ecocert organic
crop. These shirts are in natural ecru/unbleached colour
organic cotton. They are great quality, with a printed cotton
swing tag telling about the organic cotton. We’ve used these for a
year now and are happy about the quality and quick delivery!
Price guide kids £6, adults £7.50/£8 for 50 to 100.
Indian organic cotton: Range of colours/size/fit, beautiful feel
(Socially Accountable Fabrics) Doing lots to assure small Indian
farming communities can gain a better living, in a more natural way
without the risks of toxic chemicals.
Price guide similar to above.
Turkish organic cotton, adult size garments made by
Palestinians in West Bank and Gaza.
Price guide £8-£10, dependant on quantity.
|Others: If you need something in organic cotton that one of these suppliers don’t have, we have several other sources. Last year we got organic shirts from both Wales and Germany to make up an order for a group taking part in the Make Poverty History march.|
Please get in touch with your requirements, and we’ll
do what we can. We would love everyone to use organic cotton, which
is safer to produce. Usually commanding a higher price for the
farmers, avoiding the volatile low cotton prices which have come
about due to subsidies available to large producers in the west.
Some experts claim cotton is responsible for some 200,000 deaths annually due to pesticide, herbicide and fertiliser use. Organic cotton can help reduce this.
For the time being we are still printing quality
non-organic shirts for wholesale customers which are great quality
and come from suppliers who claim some ethical and environmental
standards. At the moment we can’t make a living out of purely
selling the organic shirts. And we still want to work with small
grassroots campaigns that need to have T-shirts but can’t consider
the high price of organic.
Price guide as low as £3 for 100 one design one size unbleached cotton, around £4.50 for 20/30 in say red or olive. Screens £20. Kids shirts are less!
2006 printing bargains: Catch me on a quiet week before Easter
and I’ll offer to print standard shirts in a run of 100 garments,
