The Optimism Tee...for the ones who see what is possible. They bring us together and invite us to help create a better world. Wearers of this tee exude optimism and hope. The future they see is bright...and they’ve got brilliant ideas about how we can get there.

  • Designed for versatility - and stain-hiding capabilities! 
  • Sewn by our WFTO* (fair trade) certified partner, Freeset Global, in Kolkata, India.

Please note: This is no ordinary t-shirt, it’s a poverty-fighting weapon.

Every piece of AUTHOR clothing you purchase creates living-wage jobs in communities where they are needed most...because every child deserves a childhood. 

    The Global Organic Textile Standard provides assurance that your purchases are writing brighter futures for vulnerable farming families through every step of organic cotton production.

    Cotton-processing workers are paid living-wages sufficient to support their families and are kept safe by high workplace safety standards.

    Water supplies of nearby communities are protected because GOTS manufacturers use only approved low-impact dyes and effective water treatment systems.

    Food sources are protected by organic farming methods. Natural pest deterrents and predators make cotton crops safe enough for families to grow their own vegetables in the very same field.

    Farming families enjoy greater economic security when they are spared from dependency on expensive pesticides required for conventional cotton production.

    The World Fair Trade Organization has been working since 1989 to provide economic opportunity for entrepreneurs, artisans, farmers and innovators in 70 countries around the world.

    WFTO members are committed to respecting the environment by sourcing local, organic and recycled materials, and reducing energy use or using renewable energy where possible.

    While the WFTO sets high business standards in 10 important areas, one of the most notable being a local living-wage; ensuring that, in no more than 48 hours of work per week, a worker receives enough income to cover the basics: food, water, housing, education, health care, transportation, clothing, plus some extra to save for emergencies, house repairs or life events.
