Today I want to introduce you to ONNO T-shirts. They sent me the T-shirt shown in the OOTD for review.
Environmentally friendly fashion
When you are concerned about the environment you will love that this ONNO T-shirt is made from bamboo, hemp and organic cotton. Bamboo is the fasted growing plant on Earth and consumes not much water. It grows in many climate regions. Hemp is quite similar. It is also pest resistant and keeps the topsoil in great conditions. Did you know that about 25% of the world’s pesticides serve to grow regular cotton?
ONNO T-shirts adopted how textile manufacturing is done in Germany. This means the manufacturing is done where the people live. In this case, the T-shirts are cut and sewn in two villages close to Tai’an, China. Employees have an eight hour day and can go home for lunch to have an hour quality time with their family. Thus, these T-shirts are produced by adults, i.e. without kid-slave work.
Craftmanship and fit
The ONNO T-shirt shown in the OOTD is a size S. In my opinion, it has a perfect fit as it hugs my body in the right places. To get this look I ordered it a size up. According to their size chart, I would be at the upper end of a size XS. This means when you like to wear your T-shirts tight, i.e. body conscious, it seems best to order your true size according to their size chart.
ONNO T-shirts come in size XXS to XXL for women and XS to 3XL for men. Their size chart uses flat measurements. Thus, you will have to double the measures to obtain your breast circumference in inches. Multiple that number by 2.54 to get the measure in centimeters.
Their T-shirts come in up to 18 different colors for short sleeves and seven colors for long sleeves. The color of the T-shirt in the OOTD is called moos green. They also offer organic canvas totes.
The ONNO T-shirt shown in the OOTD costs $29. If you wear your T-shirts only for one year every 2 weeks, your cost-per-wear will be about $1.12. This cost is very acceptable for a better quality T-shirt, in general, and a great deal for a T-shirt this soft and nicely crafted. Thumbs up for the ONNO T-shirt!
Is sustainability and environmentally friendly fashion important for you? If so, you may tweet I love sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion. Is softness important for you when buying T-shirts? How often do you replace your T-shirts? Let me know, by commenting. I am curious.
