At SRH Australia, we are constantly striving to maintain the very highest international, environmental standards, by utilizing the most sustainable production processes available to us. It is our priority to develop ethical relationships throughout our business, fostering the cost-effective, efficient and sustainable integrity our customers expect.
Our raw cotton is sourced from Australia and the USA, two highly regulated countries that produce premium quality, long-staple cotton. The greatest benefit of such high-quality cotton is that it guarantees the longevity of our garments. To assure that there is no shrinkage or twisting in our finished t-shirts, our fabric is washed prior to production and uses no chemical-based detergents, preferring instead eco-friendly, plant-based detergents.
Our screen printing process uses Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified Japanese water-based inks, which are 100% free of heavy metals, solvents and PVC.
While only 1% of the world’s cotton production is organic, here at SRH Australia, organic cotton is now used in 70% of our cotton T shirt production. Requiring less energy and water than conventional cotton, organic cotton is free from pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and genetically modified crops.
In a continued drive to be at the cutting edge of eco-friendly apparel, we are now able to incorporate tencel, bamboo and recycled PET plastic yarns (most commonly found in plastic drink bottles) into many of our garments.
