Ripple Effect Unisex Short Sleeve Shirt
This summer we have partnered with OceanWatch Australia. OceanWatch Australia works with Australia’s seafood industry and coastal communities to ensure our marine environment is healthy, productive, valued and responsibly used. Shapes in the Sand are donating $10 from the sale of this garment to OceanWatch Australia to help protect essential fish habitat through Tide to Tip 2022 - A series of oyster farmer led clean-up events in Australian waterways.
Designed to be worn from the beach to the bar, this shape is unisex. Featuring a short sleeve design with a relaxed fit. A box pleat at the back, curved hemline and a spread collar. Decorated with responsibly sourced New Zealand Abalone shell buttons, our supplier works with ethical pearl farmers and fishermen from ocean-dependent communities.
Every part of this shirt has been thoughtfully sourced and made. Our collar interfacing is made from certified organic cotton instead of traditional polyester.
Fabric & Print Details
Our unisex short sleeve shirt is made using 100% EU Ecolabel certified LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose natural fibres. A soft sustainable alternative to traditional viscose that provides supply chain transparency.
Inspired by seashells moving with the tides and our forever changing coastlines, the Ripple Effect textile print story is a Shapes in the Sand original. Designed and hand-painted in our coastal studio.
Ripple Effect has been printed using water-based neo pigment inks that are free from heavy metals, formaldehyde and Alkylphenol Ethoxylates (APE), making them non-hazardous, non-toxic and 100% biodegradable.
ECOVERO™ is lightweight and gentle against the skin, offering efficient moisture regulation allowing breathability. The fibres are biodegradable and made from 100% certified sustainable organic wood pulp.
LENZING™ products are made from renewable raw materials which are biodegradable and compostable at the end of their use. This enables the material to close the loop and aligns with the biological cycle.
