This fantastic abstract pattern is called “Fichteltribe”. The design was inspired by the Fichtel mountains which are located close to our friends at Bleed Clothing in north-eastern Bavaria, Germany.
The print is applied directly to the natural undyed fabric, which is made from organic cotton (90%) and hemp (10%).

The clothes industry is a particularly dirty industry – we’re trying to do things in a better way!
None of our clothes contain polyester, nylon, or any other unsustainable man-made fibres, ensuring that micro plastics don’t end up in the sea.
The fabric used to make this t-shirt is 90% organic cotton and 10% hemp. It has not been dyed and the pattern is applied with a water based ink.
"I first went to sea when I was a young child. My heart never left" - Scott Roberts, founder of Of the Oceans.
Eco-friendly: Of the Oceans is, you guessed it, committed to healthy oceans. The brand is plastic-free and uses materials such as hemp, GOTS-certified organic cotton, bamboo and wool.
The fabrics are dyed in a zero-discharge dyehouse, where all the water is recycled in a closed-loop system.
Fair production: The clothes are made in factories that have either been assessed as a leader by the Fair Wear Foundation or that carry a Fairtrade certificate.
Good cause: 5% of every purchase is donated to marine conservation charities.
