MATERIAL
The t-shirt is made of 60% banana agri-waste and 40% organic cotton. The banana fibers are produced from by-products of banana cultivation (the leaves of the tree) and are transformed into textile fibers instead of being burned. Banana fibers share many similarities with cotton fibers; they are soft, absorbent, biodegradable, and hypoallergenic. The major differences lie primarily in cultivation. Unlike cotton, banana fibers have minimal impact on the climate. The plant, for instance, yields 60% higher returns, requires little water, and no fertilizers or chemicals to grow. No chemicals are used in the production process either.

The banana fibers contribute strength to the material, while the organic cotton makes the garment soft and comfortable.

ABOUT PYRATEX®
PYRATEX® was born in 2014, with the mission to replace synthetic textiles with new natural and recycled alternatives. It was initiated with an R&D path by collaborating with various European textile institutes with the idea of developing biobased fabrics, bringing performance and well-being to the wearer. After 4 years of R&D to develop the first PYRATEX® fabrics and set up a European supply chain for the production of these materials they initiated their first collaborations with brands.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
Central to our design philosophy is that we couldn't care less about trends. Instead, we design garments meant to be beautiful in 2, 10, and 100 years. The goal is to create classics. Every. Single. Time. This also means that our clothes feature clean designs in timeless colors and without prominent logos or illustrations. The Banana T-shirt is one such classic. Clean lines, roomy fit, subtle logos, but with a slightly different story than a typical cotton t-shirt.

USE MORE +
This product is made from a durable natural material with a timeless design. Natural materials are not as strong as plastic materials, but we believe it's more likely that you'll love a nature-based product for many, many years. The lifespan also depends entirely on how you treat the garment. If you take good care of it and repair it when needed, you will be able to enjoy it for a very, very long time. We're here to help with that through Use More +, a service that gives you help on fixing and caring for your product, and one free repair of this product. Read more about Use More + here.
