Sustainability

Materials: All of SPA’s products are made from GOTS certified organic cotton. The garment swing tags are made from recycled paper.

 

Production: The materials and production are sourced from and assembled in Pakistan. The yarn is spun into cloth at a factory next-door to the brand’s assembly factory where it is cut and sewn to become a t-shirt. This reduces the transportation distance of the cloth to a matter of meters, and in turn, significantly reduces the carbon footprint. If the brand ships via air, they offset the carbon emissions. SPA are transparent in their production costs, see the transparency tab for a breakdown of this item.

 

Responsibility:  1% of SPA’s revenue is donated to Crisis U.K, the U.K’s national homelessness charity. SPA also have a relationship with Berlin’s Rise Foundation, helping provide clothing, medicine and conversation to Berlin’s homeless community.

Design

The second product to be launched in the SPA collection, the long-sleeve oversized t-shirt took the brand quite a bit less time to turn around than its brother, the short-sleeve. Since their launch in 2018, the brand have learned masses and have become much more efficient in taking something from an idea to a physical product.

 

SPA are still self-proclaimed perfectionists though. That meant that in the 6 months of development time consumed, 5 different designs had samples produced (all of which were then scrapped) before settling on this, their sixth iteration.

 

The same fabric, body block and neckline has been used as on the short-sleeve. It didn’t make sense for the brand to change any of this stuff, since they have had such positive feedback thus far.

 

What ate so much time for SPA, was getting the cut of the long-sleeves perfect. They are long enough that they hang with a nice bunching effect, tight enough around the wrist that you don’t get the dreaded wizard’s sleeve and loose enough around the rest of the arm that they have the oversized look that they have become known for.
