The Swedish textile industry was known for producing top quality products up until the late 70's, when productions were moved out of the country as companies started looking for cheaper labour. A lot of the knowledge about garment manufacturing got lost in the years that followed and today only a handful of manufacturers remain in Sweden.
We are happy to be part of the movement that tries to bring textile and garment production back to Sweden again! Even if the old machines have been stored away for decades we think it's time to bring them out and get them running again.
Blue Highway Clothing AB is our in-store brand. Apart from these T-shirts we also produce hand made leather bags in Tärnsjö, Sweden and hand made jeans that we make in the workshop in the back of our store. In other words, Blue Highway is our project where we strive to move production as close as possible to our location in a world where most products are made in countries far away from the consumers.
These t-shirts are made in southern Sweden, knitted on tubular knit machines from the early 20th century. The cotton used is organic GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)certificated cotton. In other words, the cotton is grown whiteout pesticide and fertilizers, free from GMO and the plantation also has a water cleaning plant. These are just some of all the criteria that goes behind the GOTS certificate.
The seams are made using cotton thread, and the same goes for the neck label.
Sizing - These t-shirts are knitted on vintage machines from a time when a t-shirt was intended to be worn as a undergarment so the sizes are quite small. Make sure to check the measurements! We would recommend you to go for one size bigger than you normally wear.
