We took the perennial favorite, our undyed organic linen jersey tee, dyed it with organic indigo leaves and then overdyed it with plants grown and harvested right here at our Los Angeles, California dye garden, creating this beautiful dark teal.

Growing locally helps us decrease our carbon footprint and support our local economy.  Plus, we reuse the all natural dye water to water our next generation of dye plants and the remnant plant material is composted for the same purpose, in a small, closed loop system. 

Made with GOTS certified organic linen fabric, and organic cotton thread and labels. No harmful chemical whiteners, optical brighteners or industrial fabric softeners. Free of petroleum. Good for you and the Earth.

Ethically designed and manufactured in Los Angeles.

Unlike industry-standard petroleum-based dyes, this shirt is dyed with organic indigo leaves and local, organically grown weld leaves and flowers.

Weld is an incredible natural dye plant that was historically used throughout Europe, Asia and was even used by native Americans. It is known for its ability to make the longest lasting natural yellows, and also makes olive greens with small amounts of iron.

Indigo leaf dye has been safely used for thousands of years (dating back to 2000-3000 B.C.) for its ability to make strong and beautiful blues. In the 1800s, natural indigo was almost completely replaced by synthetic indigo, which is derived from the known toxin aniline (a chemical that has been used to make rocket fuel).

Ethically made all the way through.

From start to finish, every company involved in Sustain's supply chain provides fair wages and safe working conditions.

Made with GOTS certified organic linen fabric and cotton thread - the highest standard in organic. Every single step in the creation of this shirt, from the growing of the linen and cotton, to making the shirt, is ecofriendly.

Also, plant dyes do not produce toxic run-off like conventional (and other organic dyes) and plant dyes remove carbon from the air during the plants' growth, helping reverse the cause of global climate change.

The model is 5'10" and wearing a size small. A small is 25.5" long and 34.5" at the bust unstretched.

Care Instructions: Machine wash on gentle cycle using a mild detergent and without fabric softeners. To keep natural linen jersey shirts looking their best, hang dry or tumble dry on low until damp and then lay flat to dry.
