Garvey 2.0 DashikTee
DashikTees are back...kind of. They did a limited run this time with an updated design to make the tee longer and more fitted.
This modern take on the dashiki is just what you need to set yourself apart from the crowd without sticking out. Sometimes you don't want all those loud colors, and you want the comfort of a t-shirt, but the style of a dashiki. This should be a stable of any cultured person's wardrobe. This is subtle sophistication and culture.
PLUS this is the perfect shirt for frequent travelers. Not only because it's comfortable and makes you look good while you're running through the airport, but also because the front pocket is perfectly sized to fit your passport!!! Pretty cool right? We didn't even do it on purpose, it just worked out that way.
- Made from hemp stretch jersey, machine wash cold, machine dry low, low iron
- mini front center pocket
- Fits like an American Apparel t-shirt, but longer
They used eco-friendly fabric this time made from hemp fiber. Hemp is an amazing plant and much better for the environment than cotton, or even bamboo (google it if you don't believe us).
Benefits of Hemp Fabric:
Clothing made of hemp fiber is lightweight and absorbent, with three times the tensile strength of cotton. People have long valued this strong and long lasting plant: the first hemp plants were spun into fiber than 10,000 years ago.
UV and mold-resistant, hemp is excellent for outdoor wear.
Easy on the Environment
Hemp farming uses very little water (half as much as cotton), does not require the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers, and is a readily renewable resource. Furthermore, nothing is wasted in the hemp production process: seeds are used to make oil and food supplements, while the stalks are used for fiber. Hemp also produces more fiber per acre than trees, and can be renewed two to three times per year. Not only that: industrial hemp plants absorb more carbon dioxide than trees.
...AND THERE'S MORE!
They've also launched...drumroll please...a LONG SLEEVE version of the Garvey DashikTee!!! Just in time for the fall/winter.
They only made 20 shirts in this run (10 long sleeve and 10 short sleeve and half of them have already been sold).
The bad news is that this will be the last production run indefinitely. The DashikTees team is moving on to other things for now, so this will be your last chance to get them for a while...maybe ever.
