New from Stedman Stars, the James, Janet and Jamie T-shirts are made from 155 gsm, 100% organic, ring-spun combed cotton and have Organic Content Standard 100 certification.
The men’s James tee comes in sizes S-2XL and the women’s Janet, in sizes S-XL. Both feature side seams and are available with either a crew-neck or V-neck. The Jamie for children comes in sizes S-XL (122-164) and is a tubular-style with a crew-neck.
There are nine warm and natural tones to choose from, including Indian yellow, lavender purple and Pacific blue. Each tee has a smooth, soft surface that’s ideal for decorating, and is finished with a small size label in the neck. The care label is sewn into the side seam on the adults’ tees, and into the hem on the children’s tee.
Sample tees are available on request from Stedman Apparel’s UK customer service team.
100% recycled tee
Salvage offers five fashionable styles, all made from 100% recycled material: 60% pre-consumer organic waste cotton and 40% post-consumer plastic (PET) waste. The Men’s/Unisex T-Shirt (SA01) has a simple shape, comes in seven colours – melange black, melange navy, melange plum, melange heather, melange green, melange mid blue and melange red – and in sizes XS-2XL. It is certified to Global Recycle Standard and Organic Content Standard, and approved by the Fair Wear Foundation.
Redesigned recycled sublimation T-shirt
The Unisex Recycled Polyester Sublimation T-Shirt (NS01) from Continental has had its shoulders, armholes and sleeves completely redesigned to ensure it is totally flat when the design is transferred from paper to garment. This virtually eliminates the underarm white blaze that can be found when sublimation printing onto finished garments, says the brand. The tee is made from 170 gsm, 100% recycled polyester jersey, and it is approved by the Fair Wear Foundation, certified to Oeko- Tex 100 Standard, and comes in sizes XS-2XL.

New Oeko-Tex shopper bag
CrazyBags has launched its new Oeko-Tex Cotton Shopper bag. Described as a super practical bag, but lightweight enough to fold up and put in your pocket or handbag, the portrait-format Cotton Shopper measures 38 cm by 42 cm and has long handles so it can be carried over the shoulder. It is made from 170 gsm, 100% sustainable cotton and is certified by the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 label.
“CrazyBags is the UK’s only supplier of certified Oeko-Tex bags to the trade. This product is a great addition to our ever popular eco range and, at the same price as non-certified cotton bags, it’s the right choice for any customer who has green credentials high on the agenda,” says Andy Steavenson, managing director of CrazyBags.
All Images readers ordering the Oeko-Tex Cotton Shopper before the end of August 2015 will receive free screens. (Mention Images when ordering.) Unprinted bags are available on next day delivery.
