Set an example for fair and sustainable partnerships through your order. You can keep track of all stages of production in real time. Once 500 TreeShirts of each colour are ordered, production will begin, with delivery expected in December 2020. The TreeShirt consists of 100% certified organic cotton from Burkina Faso and is produced under fair conditions in Greece and Northern Macedonia. Haelixa will apply a natural marker to the organic cotton, so that the Treeshirt can be traceable. For every TreeShirt sold, our partner organisation “OneTreePlanted” will plant a tree
. The TreeShirt is available in two models (Women and Unisex), four colours (black, white, olive and rose) and five sizes.
Haelixa marks the organic cotton with natural markers and can trace the material of the TreeShirt. The marker consists of natural DNA sequences which are sprayed on as a unique label. Neither the properties of the fibers nor the genetic code are altered during marking. Haelixa's newly developed technology contributes to greater sustainability and transparency in the textile industry. For more information click here
The current fast-fashion business models of the textile industry cause enormous environmental and social harm. The traceable TreeShirt sets an example for transparent supply chains and production with a big focus is on fair conditions for farmers in Burkina Faso and organic cotton. This already presents a great challenge: Due to higher prices of the organics cotton compared to conventional cotton, they find it difficult to find committed buyers. Since many consumers mostly care about design and price, the supply chain is dominated by time and cost pressures. We want to go ahead and demonstrate that sustainable and fair fashion is possible at reasonable prices and can be achieved by the engagement of all stakeholders.
You take responsibility for the environment - globally and locally
To tackle desertification and as contribution for reforestation, we plant a tree for every Traceable TreeShirt sold. In addition, organic farming methods protect the groundwater and preserve the soil. Follow our efforts for the shortest possible delivery routes.
You engage into a fair partnership with local farmers
With your pre-order you support the cultivation of organic cotton. The farmers receive a fair payment for their product and do not come into contact with harmful chemicals. In addition, organic farming enables women in particular to earn a stable income for their family.
You make a statement for transparent supply chains
You will be regularly updated about the production of your Traceable TreeShirt at each point in the supply chain and see how cotton is transformed from the fibre to the Tshirt.
With your pre-order and your interest, you support the ETH spin off Haelixa in reaching its goal of making global supply chains traceable.
