Yes, i know everyone wants cheap and many T-Shirts and yeah I know most people don't give a s.... about fairtrade or environmentally friendly clothes.
But... what about the few people who give, who care? People who want to pay a little more for less things, who rate quality over quantity?
Maybe, just maybe there is a small chance of a possibility to create a category for those folks. I really like the creative styles of the prints, I bought some shirts too and I would like to buy an ugly sweater for christmas....
But it bothers me that I can only buy these great prints on cheap t-shirts that are (mostly) produced under awful conditions and shipped around the globe (to create tons of co2) before they get a nice and outstanding image.
So I would be very happy if in near future there could a category of fairtrade cotton shirts and sweaters. Do something remarkable, show that you care. I thinks you will get quite more customers to enjoy your great work.
Thanks for your patience.
I think it's a great idea !
I agree too! By the way, what is Qwertee policy regarding the quality of the t-shirts? Where do they come from? How do they control the way they are being made? I could accept to pay more (20€ a tshirt maybe?) if for sure I knew that everything was granted all the way from cotton labor to manufacturing!
So true. I love Qwertee' designs and bought several of them. But I do not do it anymore because of that. If Qwertee launched a more ethical category, I'd love to keep on renewing my wardrobe!
I agree ! I'm ok to pay more for organic and fairtrade tee shirts
@Athanos Since the question is still unanswered on here: The basic product they use for the vast majority of the designs (except the rare non-plain colors and some of the 3xl shirts i think) are gildan® softstyle ring spun tees. They are spread widely around Europe so you should be able to find information on them. All I can say is that they produced in Bangladesh.
(And obviously they are printed in Ireland by Qwertee themselves)
Aaah and for the fairtrade stuff... I guess this world is not ready for that. I think there has only been one tee brand that was selling true 100% fair shirts. And they were top premium quality as well. Sadly this company, which went under the name Switcher, went bankrupt lately. No need to ask why...
I'd also easily be ready to pay more for a fairtrade shirt. Less Nicaragua / Bangladesh, more vegan production.
