Organic 'Always Be A Mermaid' - Adult T-Shirt
I've been working hard with Lorraine Williamson, designer at Positively Organics, to bring you a collection of high quality, organic t-shirts including this "Always Be A Mermaid" vest top. It's super soft and comfy which means you can wear it anywhere and immediately remember lovely times at the beach.
I think we would all rather spend our days at the beach when we get the chance. There is something about the beach and the smell of the ocean breeze that calms the soul and makes us feel whole again. I know many of you are secret mermaids... but don't worry, your secret is safe with me!
As you would expect from Seahorse the t-shirts are responsibly manufactured and are made from 100% ringspun combed organic cotton (find out more below under Buy with Confidence).
They are available in 6 size options, xs, s, m, l, xl and xxl. Sizes are shown in centimetres.
Please check the size chart before ordering.
This t-shirt is only available in white with the 'Mermaid at Heart' slogan. The plain top in the photos is only to illustrate the style of the top more clearly.
Buy with Confidence
We recognise that garment manufacturing is one of the most environmentally damaging and harmful industrial sectors on the planet. And we know that you care about the environment, our oceans and the animals that live in it.
Which is why we have gone to so much trouble to source t-shirts that have the lowest possible environmental impact, including the use of low impact cotton.
Our manufacturer of this t-shirt design manufactures over 95% of their garments in Bangladesh. They are certified members of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF), an international organisation that aims to improve workers’ conditions in the textile industry in South Asia and monitors for compliance to its key principles of:
- Legal contract of employment
- A living wage
- No child labour
- Freedom of association
- No discrimination
- Safe conditions
- Employment freely chosen
- Reasonable working hours
The factories they use are GOTS-certified* and audited by the Fair Wear Foundation, and they use 100% organic cotton.
Organic cotton is a natural, GMO-free fibre that uses less water than standard cotton. In addition, its production does not involve the use of chemicals (no fertilisers or pesticides) and encourages rotation of crops to keep soil healthier, more fertile and maintain humidity. Waste from the cotton ginning process is also recycled for the animal feed industry.
*GOTS is the Global Organic Textile Standard label. The strictest certification for textiles made from organic fibres. GOTS tracks the entire chain of production from farm to factory: from harvesting of the cotton, weaving of fibres, assembly of items, to the final product before printing, including even the export of our clothing! It certifies that the cotton is GMO-free and is grown without the use of chemicals and is processed and dyed without using any banned toxic substances.
GOTS also ensures compliance with the labour standards of the International Labour Organisation throughout the chain of production.
The company is also OEKO-TEX certified.
OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certifies the absence of harmful chemical substances in all of their products thanks to the “Confidence in Textile” label. An independent testing and certification system that ensures that all raw, semi-finished and finished textile products are processed in a way that prioritises:
- The precautionary principle, which prohibits certain potentially harmful substances even where they are not (yet) legally banned
- The absence of chemical substances that are harmful to health and the environment
- A restriction on the lead content of dyes
This manufacturer is also PETA certified. This means that they do not conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finished products and pledge never to do so. On top of this, their clothing is made from 100% vegan materials so you can be confident that no harm came to anyone during its creation.
