On July 18th, the “Sustainable★Selection 2023,” organized by Alterna Co., Ltd., was announced, and Emblem of Endangered Species Embroidered T-shirt was selected as a One-Star.
List of One-Star and Two-Star selections for “Sustainable★Selection 2023”:
『Emblem of Endangered Species Embroidered T-shirt』
This T-shirt features the CLASS EARTH emblem, inspired by endangered species from around the world and embroidered using state-of-the-art AI embroidery technology. The beautiful emblem is embroidered on a large scale while minimizing the use of thread ends by dyeing a single thread during the embroidery process, reducing the typical stiffness associated with embroidery. Furthermore, from an environmental perspective, sewing the embroidered design while dyeing the thread helps reduce waste and suppress wastewater discharge.
The T-shirt’s body is made from 100% organic cotton sourced from India, known for its durability due to its thick fibers. Each T-shirt is carefully sewn one by one at a sewing factory in Wakayama Prefecture, promising a production system that minimizes mass production and waste generation, which is a common problem in the apparel industry.
2% of the sales will be donated to the NATURE CONSERVATION SOCIETY OF JAPAN.
