Where is the textile produced?
Our cotton textiles come from Somelos, which is a 60-year-old family-owned textile manufacturer, and Tintex, which is a market-leading textile manufacturer, both located north of Porto in Portugal.
Both textile manufacturers has a special focus on sustainability and their social responsibility in Portugal. Somelos also commits to strong social, environmental and cultural responsibility principles.
Somelos and Tintex ensure that the fabric for Appearance shirts is produced according to strict environmental standards and certifications, including BCI (The Better Cotton Initiative), REACH and Oeko- TexStandard 100. In addition, Appearance Oxford textiles are GOTS certified.
BCI (The Better Cotton Initiative)
The BCI program works towards establishing global principles and criteria for cotton growers and retailers. The BCI certification standard focuses on pesticide reduction and water use.
The International Oeko-Tex Association is an independent certification system for textiles, which is the world's leading health label. The certification sets requirements for the content of chemical substances that are harmful to the consumer's health.
The REACH regulation was introduced by the EU in 2007. The aim is to improve the protection of people and the environment against the risks posed by chemicals. REACH stands for registration, evaluation, approval and restriction of chemicals.
Long Staple US Pima Cotton
We get our cotton from BCI certified plantations in California without the use of pesticides or unhealthy growth agents. BCI ensures proper conditions during growing and harvesting the cotton.
The long soft Pima cotton fibers give your shirt an extra long life and make it extra soft and comfortable. The long fibers are extra durable and keep the color better.
