Due to using all recycled product and not using any dyes this can sometimes cause some colour matching issues. Normally, the rib and the main fabric are dyed together in a big batch of toxic chemicals. Even brands using recycled fibres use extra dyes to re-dye the fabrics. To us this is madness. The reason we are using recycled fibre in the first place is to work through all the wasted fabrics which have already been created, why cancel out all this work by using harmful chemicals and more water?
We do not use any additional dyes, instead we use fabric cuttings and match the trims the best we can for the final garment. And instead of complaining we cannot get the perfect match, we see the beauty in this difference and embrace it. This image is of our black tee and is a perfect example of this shading issue. The shocking things is, in another brand, this would be rejected and then thrown away. Terrible hey!
