Inspired by raw earth and the creatures that live on it, this colorway has been executed in raw organic cotton and has used no dye whatsoever, making the fabric sustainable and recyclable. The twill construction is made of 100% organic cotton yarns, completely undyed. Due to the untreated organic yarns, the garments receive an off-white hue with natural speckles unique to each garment.
