Where are the garments manufactured?
Within the Continental range the majority of styles is manufactured at our state-of-the-art factory in rural Bangladesh, some top-end styles are made in Turkey and a few fleece styles are made in China. EarthPositive and Salvage ranges are produced entirely in India.
Will the garments shrink in the wash?
The garments comply with the general performance standards in the clothing retail industry. Some shrinkage and twisting may occur after washing but will stay within the acceptable limits for dimensional stability performance. To minimize shrinking and twisting, it is recommended that the wash temperature does not exceed 40C in a standard or delicate washing cycle, and the garments are reshaped before drying on a line or flat. Hot washes and tumble drying is likely to affect the dimensional stability of the garments and may also cause fading of colour. For the sake of protecting the environment, we say: wash at 30C or below, do not tumble dry, line dry and only iron when necessary.
Are the T-shirts suitable for printing and decorating?
All our garments are reactive dyed and ready for decorating in a wide variety of screen printing techniques including discharge printing, heat transfers, sublimation printing and embroidery. The garments perform particularly well in digital direct-to-garment printing.
Do the T-shirts have any labels or tags?
Continental garments have a plain size label in the back neck and a logo on the inside wash/care label. EarthPositive garments have a back neck label with size, the EarthPositive “Tick” symbol and the wording “Climate Neutral”. The inside wash/care label has the EP and low carbon logos. Salvage garments have a back neck label with size, the Salvage “Links” symbol and the wording “100% Recycled”. The inside wash/care label has the Salvage logo and certification marks. All the wash/care labels carry the FWF symbol except the products made in China.
