ABOUT FASHION BY FIVE
We combine positive messaging, inspired designs, vibrant colors and print on high quality materials in order to provide our customers with a superior print and a soft, comfortable feel. Our tees are made USA strong with the highest quality combed and ring-spun Airlume cotton, and eco-friendly dyes.
Our sustainable line of tees are made from organic US-grown cotton, recycled polyester, and Tencel Modal – three fibers that not only produce a luxuriously soft shirt, but are better for the environment as well. Every tee contains the equivalent of 6 plastic water bottles!
Professionally printed using only the highest quality eco-friendly inks in Seattle WA, and shipped in 100% recyclable and naturally biodegradable packaging.
10% of sale proceeds go to non profits that help encourage the healing and spiritual growth of humanity, animals and our planet.
THE PROCESS BEHIND OUR TEES
Our tees are made in the United States (thus creating thousands of American jobs each year), and they are dyed in California where more rigid environmental standards are enforced than in most other US states. Currently, our t-shirt manufacturer uses approximately seven times less water on average than other clothing manufacturers. This adds up to more than 1.2 billion gallons of water saved per year.
What’s more, water is filtered to remove any leftover dyes and then recycled and used over and over. This means water is not wasted, nor is it returned to rivers or streams where it would cause chemical and thermal pollution.
Our t-shirt manufacture's facilities also adhere fully to the 12 principles of W.R.A.P. (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production), ensuring that both people and the environment are protected and respected.
Energy efficiency is also a primary priority. All cutting and sewing facilities operate on solar power, headquarters buildings utilize motion-sensor LED lighting and skylights are being installed in all buildings to reduce the amount of energy required for lighting and overall operation. All this results in a considerably reduced carbon footprint.
Our tees are made from the highest quality combed and ring-spun cotton you can get. Clean cotton, long staple fibers, and our eco-friendly dying process is what makes our cotton different. Our tees have 2.5x more impurities removed than standard ring-spun cotton through our extensive combing process - so not only can you feel good about wearing our tees, but they feel good to wear.
