Ethical Tees that plant trees

Special shout out to Toby Tinwell for the lovely music and Entheos media group for the beautiful videography.
OUR CORE VALUES
The definition of ‘sonder’ is the realisation that each random passer-by is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. This is a collaborative process, we've already worked with lots of local talented artists who’ve helped us create some of the content for Artful Sonder and we would love to hear from you if you're interested in working with us, whether it's for content creation or to be involved with the designs for our next collection!
Our clothing is ethically made in Fair Wear Foundation approved facilities, this simply means that none of our clothing was made in sweat shops and the people involved in production are guaranteed safe and dignified working conditions as well as a fair living wage.
This is what started this brand, a love for art and creativity. From the design, to the printing process to the content created for our channels, everything produced from this brand is a direct result of skilled local artists that have come together. As well as T-Shirts we also sell art prints, these are all unique to the brand and can't be found anywhere else, check them out here.
The environmental impact is at the heart of this venture, as a brand we love nature and the great outdoors. A lot of the designs and art incorporate some element of the natural world and we'll be publishing lots of lovely outdoorsy content on our blog soon.
Here are some of the ways we’re working towards being an environmentally-friendly brand:
100% organic cotton tees –produced exclusively from organic Indian cotton, and the entire production process is controlled and certified in accordance with the latest version of GOTS. Find out more on our Sustainability Page.
Screen printed designs using water-based inks.
100% recyclable and biodegradable packaging.
Our art prints are printed on 100% recycled, uncoated materials.
