So excited to let you know that Coffee Apothecary t-shirts are now available! We have been pondering having t-shirts for a long time and a certain enforced down time gave us the opportunity to finally see it through!
We spent a long time playing with design ideas, and even longer making sure we picked the right company to make the t-shirts. We were looking for a company that we totally trusted to be sustainable and fair with the cotton farming and the fabric and t-shirt production. We wanted to be sure that no one is taken advantage of in terms of wages, how they are treated and how the environment is respected. Our supply chain is right at the core of who we are as a business and so this was incredibly important to us.
Our searching led us to a company from the Isle of Wight called Rapanui. We spent a lot of time reading what they do and finding out about what they believe in. I was going to tell you all about it here but I realised that I couldn't do a better job than they had, at telling the story of their t-shirts from farm to you. You can read it here www.teemill.com/the-journey/ on the site of their sister company Teemills that deals with business customers like ourselves. Needless to say we were very excited to work with them for our t-shirts.
The t-shirts are available in both our cafes in both mens (S/M/L/XL) and ladies (8/10/12/14) styles. Next time you are in have a look and see what you think!
