The dark blue Yuko tunic shirt of People Tree is made of 100% hand woven cotton. This blouse has a Japanese shirt style. It has a shirt collar, chest pocket, button opening from top till bottom, a long body and wide fit. The front bottom is slightly shorter then the back and has round corners, while the back has a square shape. The fabric has a subtle herringbone pattern woven into it.
This special shirt is trendy yet also contemporary. It will look great with wide trousers for a full Japanese-like look. But also slim fit jeans or black leggings will look great with this blouse.

What makes organic cotton a better choice than conventional cotton? First of all, organic cotton doesn’t need chemical fertilizers and less water to grow. Secondly, when cotton is organically grown the land stays fertile for a much longer period of time than when conventional cotton is grown on that same field. Growing organic cotton has a positive effect on the lives, health and incomes of the farmers. And organic cotton is healthier for the wearer!
