Indigofera are celebrating their 10 years anniversary as a brand and part of the celebration is a collaboration with Red Wing Shoes! Indigofera dug deep in the Red Wing archives to find the inspiration behind the so called Climber Boot Style No: 4328. As a part of the collection Indigofera made this t-shirt along with a beautiful wool blanket and a cotton bandana. This version of the Harvey tee has a print representing the Climber Boot mingling around with the iconic Indigofera griffin. As you might have noticed the colors of the t-shirt are a hommage to the red and white used in the Red Wing logo.
The t-shirt is made from Supima cotton in a fabric that is thick, yet feels cool to the touch due to the long cotton fibres used.
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.
