Sewn from the more rare "green" colorganic® cotton, you can't help but feel these shorts are special. Whether you're out and about or lounging at home, they'll be your summertime go-to.
Easygoing in fit and vibe, style them with a lightweight tank and you are ready for whatever adventure summer holds.
Also available in undyed colorganic® brown french terry.
The green colorganic® is pH reactive, meaning it responds to things like citrus that aren’t pH neutral. But, a wash with a pH neutral detergent will shift it back to it’s original color over and over again. Since it does shift back with a simple wash, don’t worry. This is an amazing and rare property of this natural fabric.
INGREDIENTS: Colorganic® green rib knit, 90% organic cotton/10% elastic waistband, organic white cotton drawstring, GOTS certified organic thread, natural cotton tag printed with plastic free ink
JOURNEY: Organically grown in New Mexico, consciously spun & knit in North Carolina and fairly sewn at a woman-owned factory in San Francisco, California
DESIGN: We took paid incredible attention to detail to make these shorts as healthy for our bodies and the planet as they potentially could be. We sourced colorganic® drawstring made in Japan for the adjustable drawstring cord. Typically, wherever you see a button/cord hole, there is hidden plastic interfacing. We used organic cotton muslin instead, even though nobody can see it. It was more difficult to sew and added a bit to the cost, but so worth it to avoid unnecessary, hidden plastic.
SIZING: See our sizing guide and garment measurements blog post to choose your best fit.
NOTE FROM SARAH: My favorite colors are shades that shift in the light, registering as different colors throughout the day. This fabric is predominantly a sage green, but as the light changes, it can take on tones of ashy gray, or sometimes a soft blond.
CARE: To get the most life out of your garment and do what is best for the earth, machine wash cold & line dry. Because the only option to pre-shrink our fabric was a toxic chemical wash, we intentionally designed our clothes to shrink a bit the first wash. Full details here. And don't worry - these are durable clothes that are easy to care for!
