The Six Mile Tee - Women's
The Six Mile Tee is our first Paynter Experiment, looking at how to reduce the environmental impact of a classic white tee. The result is a midweight white tee that's knitted, cut and sewn within six miles in Northern Portugal. Only 400 will be available. Shipping from 22nd of Jan.
Fabric & Care
The fabric we chose is an optic white, 200gsm midweight knitted jersey, made from 100% organic cotton. The T-shirt has been pre-washed so it won’t shrink. Wash at 30’C. Do not tumble dry. Iron inside out.
Cut for a boxy fit. Fits true to size. If you’re unsure and want more help on getting the right size, click here.
Shipping & Returns
Your T-shirt will be shipped from the 22nd of January. It will arrive within 1-5 days, and we’ll send you a tracking email once it’s on the way. If you’d like to return your t-shirt, it must be sent back within 30 days in perfect, unworn condition.
THE SIX MILE TEE
It takes 8,700 miles to make your average tee. What if you could cut that mileage in half? After months of researching, we’ve found a way to get the miles right down. We sourced organic cotton from a farm in Turkey, then from milling onwards, it's spun into yarn, dyed, knitted, cut and sewn within six miles in Northern Portugal. Yup. Six miles. (It turns out that it also takes 6 miles of yarn to make one T-shirt.)
Made from a midweight 200gsm jersey, the Six Mile Tee will probably be one of the softest t-shirt in your wardrobe. Heavy enough to stop anything showing through, while light enough to tuck. Knitted with a super soft 100% organic cotton, it’s just as soft as it is durable. Oh, and it’s pre washed to remove any shrinkage before it gets to you and keep it’s shape after plenty of washing.
A BOXY CUT
The fit is boxier and finishes on the hip. An all year round staple that looks great tucked in or left out. For more help with sizing, head to this page for more details.

A PAYNTER EXPERIMENT
This is not the perfect white tee. To us, the perfect tee uses as little resources and leaves as small a trace as possible on our planet. We couldn't be more proud of this tee, but we know that mileage only counts for a fraction of the T-shirt's impact. We’re taking this one step at a time. And with each Batch of tees we make, we’ll iterate on our goal of a tee with the smallest impact. The limited Batches will map the iterations and improvements as we learn. This is not the perfect white tee. But it's the start of our journey towards getting there.
