About the Brand
The Good Tee is a Fair Trade and B Corporation certified sustainable fashion brand. They manufacture quality, organic cotton basics in a slow manufacturing production environment. They partnered with farmers and factories that guarantee ethical working conditions. They only use AZO-free and low-impact dyes. To avoid using harmful plastic bags, their packaging is made of biodegradable and recycled materials. The Good Tee is a women-owned company that fights fast fashion and the industry’s lack of transparency.
Are they Local: Assisi Garments (their manufacturer) invests in the community by supporting various social projects, including an old age home and children's orphanage in South India. Although, the garments are made abroad, the brand is completely transparent about where and who makes each item.

Organic Materials: Yes. Mostly organic. They avoid the use of all hazardous chemicals and use only AZO-free and low-impact dyes.

They also use YKK NATULON® zippers. Made from post-consumer chemically recycled polyester, they are perpetually recyclable.
