OUR FABRIC

 


All our fabric is knitted locally from cotton sourced from neighboring countries. South African farmers don’t grow cotton. Cotton is a very labor intensive crop and it has become hard for local farmers to be profitable. Most big cotton growers around the world have become industrialized and use machines to harvest their crops and not people.


OUR FABRIC

 


We buy our fabric from 2 different knitters and dyers in South Africa. There are very few knitters and fabric suppliers left here. Cheaper imports from the east have made it difficult for the old manufacturers to stay in business.


OUR FABRIC

 


Our single jersey is knitted on very fine gauge machines from ring spun cotton. It gives you a very soft shirt that feels great to wear. It also allows for a great opaque print surface to screen print on.


OUR FABRIC

 


We also use very light weight Polly cotton blend fabric on our ultra-lite t-shirts. To be able to make light weight summer t-shirts we have to use a Polly cotton blended fabric. This makes it possible to have shirts that don’t twist in the wash or have excessive shrinking.


OUR FABRIC

 


Our fleece we use on our sweaters and hoodies is also 100% cotton. This assures you have a sweater that is free from pilling and developing little fluff balls on the surface. It also prevents your inks to discolor when screen printing.
