Looking for the most comfortable custom t-shirts? Look no further than a classic cotton tee with a conscience. Organic cotton provides a soft canvas for your designs. Plus, it’s gentle on your skin and the environment – talk about a win, win. Keep reading to learn what makes organic cotton comfortable, a positive choice for the environment, and our top organic cotton apparel picks.
Why is organic cotton the most comfortable pick for custom t-shirts?
We don’t always believe less is more, sometimes life warrants things like bottomless mimosas or binge-watching The Office… again. However, it rings true when it comes to fabric. Cotton is fundamentally comfortable. So, as long as humans don’t mess it up with chemicals in processing, it’s perfectly soft au naturel. This means, if you want the most comfortable custom t-shirt, you want organic cotton.
The quality of the fabric stems from the care that goes into each stage of the production process. Since cotton is naturally soft, it’s important to work with the plant and not against it. For example, if cotton is processed naturally, it goes through a process called combing, which removes shorter fibers in order to make it softer and more durable as opposed to relying on chemicals to make the fibers soft.
Cotton is a hollow fiber, making it very breathable so you can still feel the breeze on your skin. Alternatively, synthetic materials, such as nylon or polyester, trap heat and moisture to your skin – gross. This is important to keep in mind if you are looking for the most comfortable custom shirt for outdoor events in the summer, athletic teams, or races.
Good for You, Good for the Environment
In addition to breathability, organic cotton is also gentle on the skin because it is processed without the use of pesticides and other chemicals that can cause irritation. Even if chemicals are washed out from the early stages of the process many times there are dyes and chemicals that are used to treat the fabric if it is not certified organic. To ensure you get the most comfortable custom t-shirts, check to make sure the shirts you choose are GOTS (Global Organic Textiles Standard) certified.
Organic cotton feels good on your skin and your heart. Organic cotton is not only a great choice because it’s the most comfortable custom t-shirt option but it is also the environmentally-conscious option. Cotton is one of the most widely produced materials and non-organic cotton production relies on harmful chemicals and pesticides that are harmful to the climate, air, soil, and water quality. Additionally, inhaling these chemicals can cause health issues for farmers and cotton manufacturers.
