Women's Six Mile Tee - Black
The Six Mile Tee was our first Paynter Experiment, looking at how to reduce the environmental impact of a classic crewneck tee. The result is a mid-weight black tee that's knitted, cut and sewn within six miles in Northern Portugal. Shipping from 4th of July.
Fabric & Care
The fabric we chose is a jet balck, 190gsm mid-weight knitted jersey, made from a soft 100% organic cotton. Using a heavier than normal fabric means that the T-shirt will age better, last longer, and hold its shape well, even after plenty of washing. And to make sure the T-shirt doesn't shrink or change shape after washing, we've given it a pre-wash so it fits and feels just right from day one. 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 4th of July. 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.
Please note - If you are buying from the EU, please note these jackets are being sent from our studio in London, therefore additional duties will apply to your order.
A PAYNTER EXPERIMENT
This is not the perfect 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 tee. But it's a continuation on our journey towards getting there.
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 mid-weight 190gsm 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.
LOVED BY MANY
We’ve made this T-Shirt once before and we spent a long time getting it just right. So when we announced that our tee was coming back, it seems we weren’t the only ones excited about it. Click here to read our customer feedback about the Six Mile Tee.
