We all have that one shirt that we reach for when picking an outfit – it’s soft, familiar, and super versatile. But if you’re looking for a new one, check out Funktion Schnitt, a German brand that specializes in making eco-friendly and fairly made tees for men and women.
The creators of the brand, Peter Dirski and Simon Hariman, hoped to create a thoughtful selection of T-shirts with a focus on diversity in cut and material. Together they designed their tees to have a modern and timeless style, be made with high quality materials, be suitable for different occasions, and be made under fair conditions in Europe. In fact, all of their shirts are made in a factory in Portugal, where workers are paid proper wages and have good working conditions.
In addition to their ethical practices, Funktion Schnitt puts their main focus on the fabrics they use. Their T-shirts are made from only four materials: organic cotton, Merino wool, Tencel, and SeaCell, which is made from marine algae and protects skin. Each material is chosen according to the T-shirt’s function, be it for the gym, for a day out or for everyday wear.
Using these all-natural materials provides benefits not only to the earth, but to the wearer – some non-organic or synthetic materials can potentially irritate skin, but Funktion Schnitt’s eco-friendly fabrics will keep your skin happy.
There are so many brands out there that make T-shirts, but something that you wear almost every day shouldn’t be cheap or harmful to the planet. Fortunately, you don’t have to look too far: this German brand has struck the perfect balance between fashion and Funktion.
