We started with a boyfriend tee design but quickly turned it into a cropped tee for maximum easiness. High-rise and low-rise (we heard it’s making a comeback?) bottoms, even sports shorts, all go well with this cropped tee. Throw it on, and you are ready to start your day, in style of course.
Materials: 55% hemp, 45% GOTS-certified organic cotton.
Care: Wash cold water with gentle cycle, low heat drying or air dry flat, with similar colors only.
+ More about the fabric
Made with a substantial 7 oz. knitted jersey fabric with the perfect blend ratio of hemp and organic cotton. Hemp gives the fabric better durability, breathability and a silky texture, while the organic cotton retains the softness and comfort.
Hemp is deemed as one of the most sustainable natural crops. It requires very little agro-chemcials and irrigation during cultivation. It is also often grown as a rotation crop to replenish the nutrients in soils.
Organic cotton is grown with non-GMO seeds and without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. Compared with conventionally-cultivated cotton, organic cotton has a much smaller carbon footprint and imposes fewer health risks to farmers.
Orejas was founded by Wenjia Wang, an environmental engineer by training and a lover of beauty and art at heart. Her passion for sustainability and frustration with the current trend-obsessive and careless consumption culture led her to the discovery of sustainable fashion. Having a strong belief in business as an engine for driving cultural change, she set on the journey of creating Orejas.
All of our products are (proudly) made in China, with care. We believe it’s time to debunk the stereotypes associated with Made-in-China, as China’s garment industry boasts advanced technologies, a highly-skilled labor force, and a well-regulated welfare system.
Our current collection was made at a small-scale factory in Shandong Province, east of China. All of the workers there are from local villages, meaning they can go home to their family and children every day after work. And they are paid around 100% higher than the local minimum wage.
To amp up our compliance efforts, we are currently surveying additional certified factories for our future collections.
