Kindness Is Sexy Upcycled Top
Kindness IS sexy! And so is this shirt. I love this T-shirt because it is soft and luxurious, and made with upcycled cotton and recycled polyester. As we move forward trying to be good to this earth and her oceans, we are going to need to learn to re-use our products to be sustainable.
This super soft Aiden crop top shirt is so soft and easy to wear at home, on the beach, or around town. The Aiden is a textured crop top with the perfect loose fit and bateau neck. Embroidered text at the front features our mantra "Kindness is Sexy". Silky-soft, breezy and breathable.This is a statement tee that represents circular fashion (see more about circular fashion below). Due to the natural beauty of the sustainable content, the fabric may be slightly and uniquely speckled throughout. Made in beautiful New York City!
What is Recycled Polyester?
This durable, versatile fabric gets its name from the process of recycling used plastic into an entirely new, wearable material. Recycled polyester is a man-made fabric produced from synthetic fibers. However, instead of utilizing new materials to craft the fabric (i.e. petroleum), recycled polyester uses existing plastic. Commonly used existing plastics are old water bottles.
What is Recycled cotton?
Recycled cotton is re-purposed, post-industrial or post-consumer cotton that would otherwise be deemed straight up: waste for the landfill. For example, imagine a factory that cuts patterns for clothing out of big sheets of fabric and has all the in-between pieces to discard. The scraps of such cut and sew facilities are post-industrial cotton “waste” that have the capacity to be recycled. Depending on how recycled cotton is used, it has the potential to greatly reduce water and energy consumption in sustainable fashion and apparel, as well as reduce landfill waste and space.
What is certified organic cotton?
Organic cotton is cotton that is expected to have been grown without fertilizers and pesticides, with practices that promote biodiversity, biological cycles, and soil health. Cotton as a whole is considered to be one of the world’s “dirtiest” crops, covering 2.5% of the world’s cultivated land and accounting for 24% ($2.6 billion worth) of the world’s insecticide market. In terms of organic cotton, China, Turkey, and India are the world’s leading producers and sources. While organic cotton makes cotton cultivation “cleaner,” both organic and conventional cotton go through the same manufacturing process, which is water and energy intensive.
What is Circular Fashion?
"‘Circular fashion’ can be defined as clothes, shoes or accessories that are designed, sourced, produced and provided with the intention to be used and circulate responsibly and effectively in society for as long as possible in their most valuable form, and hereafter return safely to the biosphere when no longer of human use. (Dr. Anna Brismar, 2017, circularfashion.com)"
Circular fashion products should be designed with high longevity, resource efficiency, non-toxicity, biodegradability, recyclability and good ethics in mind. Similarly, they should be sourced and produced with priority given to local, non-toxic, renewable, biodegradable and recyclable resources, as well as efficient, safe and ethical practices. Moreover, the products should be used for as long as possible, through good care, repair, refurbishment and sharing among multiple users over time (through rent/lease, secondhand, swap etc).
