First a little background:

Designed in Newquay by the inimitable Colin (read Rob’s interview with him from last season) and made in Japan, these are simply the very, very finest tee shirts. Made on a vintage circular knitting machine (meaning no side seams) by a third generation family firm who have been knitting jersey for 100 years (they once made uniforms for the Japanese Imperial Palace), this is a slow and meticulous process. This machine can produce only 1 metre of jersey an hour and a tee shirt takes over an hour and a half to make. The machine lays the cotton down in a tube in very slow revolutions with minimal tension. No tension and no side seam results in a garment which can almost never go out of shape. These are tee shirts built to last.

The Fabrications

All the tee shirt styles are made using a special Japanese recycled cotton called Ochiwata. Ochiwata cotton is woven from the discarded short fibres of fluff from traditional cotton thread production. This by-product is then spun into the soft, downy yarn that produces a Sunray jersey.

Fun fact: Jersey fabric was first produced on the Channel Island of Jersey during the medieval era, hence the name.
