The Celine Organic Cotton/Spandex jersey:
-has a soft hand with a crisp but fluid drape
-is opaque & with enough weight for a t-shirt, cocoon dress or boxy turtleneck
-has a bit of spandex for recovery, making it perfect for organic underthings as well
-Fabric Content: 95% OEKO-TEK and GOTS certified organic cotton, 5% spandex
-Opacity: Opaque (some shadow will show through when held up to direct light, as with all light colours)
-Weight: Lightweight with body, 155 GSM/4.6 oz
-Drape: Fluid while maintaining a crisp structure
-Manufactured in: China
-Care: Wash on cool or warm, tumble dry on permanent press, iron on medium. Expect this cotton to shrink up to 6% – prewashing is a must! To protect the longevity of the spandex content, hang to dry.
🌱Sustainability: The Celine jersey is made with GOTS and OEKO-TEK certified organic cotton.
Non-organic cotton production is responsible for 25% of the world’s insecticide use and more than 10% of pesticide use – pretty staggering for just one crop. Traditional cotton is also incredibly water-hungry – it takes 20,000 litres of water to produce just 2 pounds of cotton. Organic cotton uses (on average) 30% less water – reserving more natural resources for the inhabitants of the often water-challenged countries where cotton is harvested.
💕 Named in celebration of Céline Semaan, a sustainability and human rights strategist with the UN and an overall badass. Her writings about cultural appropriation in the fashion and garment industry are must-reads, and can be found in the most recent issue of the Fashion Revolution zine.
