Barkers Announce Their First Range Of Organic Tees

Barkers Are Pleased To Announce Their First Range Of Organic Teeshirts

The new garments are made with 100% earth friendly organic cotton, grown and harvested without using harsh chemical pesticides or herbicides.

The tees are coloured using skin friendly non-toxic dyes. So they are good for the environment, good for the people who make them and good for the people who wear them.

The new tees feature 3 different iconic NZ designs:

  • NZ Longitude (featuring the longitude reading for Mt Cook)

  • NZ Koatangi (this design is the iconic metal coat hanger twisted into a NZ map)

  • Long way from home (has all the distances from major cities around the world to home in NZ)
  • Barker’s earth friendly organic cotton is certified by international EKO sustainable textile standards. Each garment carries the label ‘Earth Friendly Organic Cotton’ on the neck of the tee.

    Barker’s organic tees will be available at the end of November from Barkers stores nationwide

    Samples available from the show room now.
