Indigofera’s Kernion Raglan tee finds it's inspiration in vintage American football sports jerseys. Where the square shape makes it easy to wear on top of the protection gear assocciated with the game. This shirt is made using AmericanSupima cotton and the fabric is thick, yet feels cool to the touch due to the long cotton fibers used.
The tee has printed stripes and the shoulders and a Wear Well logo on the chest.
Supima cotton is a word comprised of "superior" and "Pima". Pima is a variety of cotton that has extra long fibers, and Supima is a non-profit organization from the US who promote North American grown cotton.
So what does extra long cotton fibers do to the finished product? In order to make a fabric the cotton fibers are first spun, causing them to twist around each other to form a thread and the longer fibers that are used, the stronger the thread is. A cotton fiber that is longer than the industry average fibre is the basic and most important ingredient in the creation of a long-lasting garment, as it replicates the raw material used to make garments before fast fashion was a thing.
