The Core tee aqua mint of Wunderwerk is made of 50% organic cotton and 50% Edelweiss modal. This basic light blue t-shirt has a regular fit, round neck line and short sleeves. The mix of modal and organic cotton makes the fabric soft and smooth and comfortable to wear.
Combine it with a beige or blue chino and a cardigan for a more smart look, or casual with an open shirt and black jeans. The tee is a real wardrobe essential..
Wunderwerk stands for the interaction of fashionable design, comfortable fit and high quality sustainable manufacture throughout the entire production and supply chain. Sustainability is one of the most important values of the label. Respect for human, nature and animals are paramount and is carried through the entire manufacturing process. Both founders are surf- and ocean lovers and therefore the label avoids ‘’plastics’’ in the collection as far as possible.
Organic cotton is more environmental friendly than conventional cotton, since less water is being used for growing the cotton and the land stays fertile for a much longer period of time than when conventional cotton is grown on the same field. The main factor limiting the increased use of organic cotton is its limited supply which is caused by several reasons. It takes around three years to turn conventional cotton into organic cotton before all pesticides and fertilizers are removed from the land. Furthermore, the production process is very costly since fewer crops can grow on the same amount of yields as conventional cotton.
Lenzing modal®, is a more environmentally friendly substitute for conventional modal fabrics. The fabric is naturally soft on the skin and exceptionally ecological. The fiber is produced, using Edelweiss technology. Edelweiss stands for a "symbiotic" production process - wood pulp, the raw material, is produced at the same site as the Modal fiber itself. (The wood pulp is extracted from beechwood. The beech tree is quite unique and has grown in Europe for a very long time.) Thus production can be done while going easy on energy and other resources.
