For the longevity of this garment, we recommend the following:
This 1-of-1 piece was sourced, designed, and reworked by our creative director, and designer Stacey Lee.
“What I love about this piece is that it could be the most versatile piece in the collection. It can be dressed up, or dressed down. It can be worn on its own or layered over other garments.” says TIYBOP designer and co-founder Stacey Lee.
Our reworked work shirts are upcycled from vintage classic men’s work shirts. This shirt contains two different prints on the front and back. We intentionally chose to use workwear in this collection for its durability and classic cuts. Historically workwear has been, and will continue to be, a timeless wardrobe staple.
From seed to finished garment, the production of a single work shirt demands an estimated 3,000 liters of water. By repurposing vintage materials for this specific garment, we've effectively conserved valuable resources in the process.
Revolutionizing textile printing, we've abandoned the environmentally taxing norms of excessive water usage and toxic runoff. Our meticulous research led us to an innovative, eco-friendly printing method that demands minimal water and no cleaning supplies, boasting both sustainability and durability. Utilizing recyclable transfer sheets and water-based, non-toxic inks, our prints embody our commitment to a cleaner future, while local recycling ensures all waste and scraps contribute to a greener world.
