Have you ever considered trying to know or figure out how your T-shirt has been made? I never thought about it before but after reading this infographic – it made me realized how important that we know how it was made and what process it goes through.
After all, it is what we wear – we wouldn’t want to know it was made of something, you know.. different, right? It made me appreciate more about T-shirts as it took a lot of work for them to be made. I saw them in a new light, how about you?
The T-Shirt: A Closet Staple
Chances are you have a drawer full of your favorite style of t-shirt. Most people find one that they like and stick with it, using it to create outfits and complete a wardrobe. Have you ever taken the time to think about where your favorite tees come from, or how they were produced? There is much more to the process of creating a t-shirt than one may imagine.
By the time a t-shirt is folded and placed on a store shelf, it has been through a huge transformation. The cotton that is required to make comfortable t-shirts has to be grown from a tiny seed and harvested by farmers. Thinking about that, you can see just how much cotton is required to make all of the t-shirts that are worn across the globe.
A Worldwide Industry
Thanks to today’s global economy, many countries are able to take advantage of the international need for clothing. Often, the t-shirt that you end up purchasing was manufactured using cotton from one country, sewn in another, and shipped from yet another. What you may not realize is that it takes many different people and companies working together to produce a quality garment that can stand the test of time.
The next time you get dressed, take a look at the following infographic, and think about just how far your t-shirt may have traveled before it ended up in your closet.
