You ask excellent questions and challenge the things others accept as “just the way it is”. You stand up for people who don’t have a voice and believe that every story can (and should) have a happy ending. We couldn’t agree more.
Your family can love the stories behind these tees. Living-wage jobs mean brighter futures; from the farmer who planted the organic cotton seed to the seamstress who stitched the tag on.
Each t-shirt arrives packaged with a coordinating bookmark to make it a meaningful and memorable gift.
Not sure what size to order?
Simply measure against a similar item that currently fits your child and compare with the measurements in our size chart.
All measurements are taken with garments lying flat.
Lay the chosen garmenton a flat surface, smooth out any wrinkles.
Chest: Measure across chest from side seam to side seam just below the armpit.
Length: Measure from the point where the shoulder seam meets the neckline ribbing, straight down to the bottom of the shirt.
Our children's t-shirts are a standard fit. If your child prefers loose-fitting shirts, we recommend choosing the next size up.
Sizing for our newest designs CONTRIBUTION, CREATIVITY, PATIENCE and STRENGTH has been updated. XXS, XS and S in these new designs are now equivalent to size 2, 4 & 6 rather than 5, 6, 7.
Please check size guides carefully before ordering.
*NEW* Updated Sizing
Author t-shirts are cut by hand and sewn in small batches in Kolkata, India by our friends atJoyya (formerly Freeset).
While there may be slight measurement variances between shirts, finished shirts are tested to ensure any differences are minor and will not affect fit.
Shrinkage A new shirt can be expected to experience 3% shrinkage after normal washing and drying.
Wear + Care To help your clothes (and our planet) enjoy a longer, better life, we recommend washing printed and dark items in cold water, hanging to dry or drying on a cool setting.
