Q: What material are your shirts made of?
A: Our shirts are made of 100% cotton and thanks to stone wash they are given softness and a unique look per shirt!
Q: What is Stone Wash and what does it do?
A: Stone wash is process where large stones are placed into industrial washers and as the wash begins the fabric is pounded and beaten as the tumbling stones ride up the paddles inside the drum and fall back onto the fabric.
Stone Washing increases flexibility and increases softness of the fabric, so forget the first time wearing feeling , you will slip into your shirt as if it's been your long-time favorite. Your first time will already be like wearing your pajamas - of course only when it comes to comfort :-)
Q: What technique do you use for the shirt prints?
A: Each shirt is different. We often employ screen printing as it makes for the brightest and longest-wearing premium prints that usually outlast the shirt itself.
Q: Will the shirts shrink?
A: All cotton shirts will eventually shrink, but it depends on how you wash them. Avoid washing on hot and drying it on hot as well - that will shrink any cotton shirt.
We recommend washing on gentle cycle, cold wash or hand wash to prevent shrinking, For drying if your dryer has a shrink guard it will probably be ok, but nothing like an old fashioned hang-dry.
Also turning the shirts inside out isn't a bad idea, it will help protect the print!
