    Why 100% Cotton?

    Why 100% Cotton?

    There are some really great t-shirts composed of different fabrics and fabric blends, but why did Redwood Tall stick with 100% cotton for our first round of tees? Read on.

    Cotton is comfortable.

    T-shirts should be comfortable and we worked hard to find the perfect cotton that is soft and flexible for everyday and all day wear.

    Cotton holds structure.

    Cotton drapes neater and we believe cotton can stand the test of time, holding its structure and feel after several washes. You shouldn't settle for things not fitting or looking right - even if you are tall. 

    Cotton is breathable.

    Another nod to your comfort (because it's that important), natural cotton is very breathable when compared to synthetic fibers. 

    Cotton is natural.

    Natural fibers, free of chemicals and hypoallergenic meaning it won’t irritate your skin - sounds like a win.

    We've been asked about shrinkage - and it is true, cotton, by nature, shrinks. Although we have recently refined our preshrunk process, you may notice up to 3% shrinkage which we have allowed for in our sizing model - however we think it's worth it.
