3 reasons why our organic cotton t-shirts are better than standard basics.

If you're new to sustainability, organic fabrics and conscious fashion, you're not alone. Slow fashion is still niche if you compare us to fast fashion giants like Shein, H&M and Zara, and if you were born in the 80s or 90s like us, 'sustainability' isn't a term we grew up with.

You might not know much about sustainable fashion now, but once you know, you can't un-know, so we wanted to share the top three reasons why our MISTER BLADIN organic cotton t-shirts are better than standard basics - so we can help you make better fashion choices.

1. Wearing organic cotton reduces your exposure to toxic chemicals.
Organic cotton is grown naturally without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Non-organic or 'conventional cotton' farming often involves the heavy use of toxic chemicals, synthetic pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). By choosing organic fabrics, you can minimise your exposure to these harmful chemicals and protect your body from nasties. Your skin is your biggest organic so everything you put on your skin, goes in your body, which means what you wear - matters.

2. Organic cotton is healthier for farmers.
We care about your health but we also care about the health of our farmers, because we're about looking good and doing good from fiber to finish. Conventional cotton farmers are exposed to toxins and chemicals during the growing and cultivating process and there are dozens of studies that prove conventional cotton growing uses deadly pesticides and chemicals that cause pretty serious health risks. Do yourself a favour and Google 'cotton farmers and health problems', and you'll no doubt join camp organic cotton. By buying and wearing organic cotton, you contribute to a safer working environment for our farmers and the communities involved in our supply chain.

3. Organic cotton is better for the environment.
There's a whole lot of processing that takes place after cotton is harvested and organic cotton wins again. It's processed using environmentally friendly methods and dyed with OEKO-TEX 100 Certified dyes, which means that the dyes we use to turn off-white cotton fluff into your premium black t-shirt, are 100% free from harmful substances. We think about our impact from the farm to your wardrobe, so it's about the big picture for us. By using organic cotton, we're making a conscious decision to decrease our environmental impact and look after the earth. It's a little more expensive in the short term, but we're looking after the environment in the long term. 

At, MISTER BLADIN, we're committed to making quality shirts in the most sustainable way possible, and that means using only natural fibres, eliminating synthetics, and choosing organic cotton. It's a step towards healthier living for you and the planet.
