Features a classic India collar (it's seamed to stand up as a button-free banded collar with a V slit) that does quite well in dressy situations. Roomy but not baggy. It substitutes for regular shirts for those needing to wear shirts for work but who are looking for a more gentle, alternative look. Excellent for casual or dressy wear, plus meditation and Tai Chi.
The RG3080 Tranquility Hemp Shirt is not made in a factory (so it is sweatshop-free): instead, it's made by sew-at-home Thai artisans in their 50's and 60's who get to stay home with their families and earn higher-than-average income. Note: there is no word for hemp in their language (in contradistinction to marijuana) so the label says linen for the linen construction of the hemp fabric.
Tranquility means different things to different people... It could be birds singing in the canopy of 1000-year-old cedar trees, the sound of water rushing over rocks in a meandering creek, warm light filtering through deciduous trees in the heat of summer, verdant forests and snow-capped mountain peaks as far as the eye can see. All of these and more are perfect in their tranquility because they are part of the natural world: vast and infinite, yet abundantly sustainable.
We wear certain clothing because they make us feel a certain way. Many of our customers live in cities, yet they also long for infinite skies, distant mountains, and nurturing primordial forests. They have told us that they want to bring as much nature and sustainability into their lives as possible, through the things they consume, wear, and see everyday. And bringing a sense of purity and peace through sustainable clothing & home products has been our goal from the beginning, and the RG3080 India Collar Tranquil Hemp Shirt reflects that. It is yet another sustainably made product in our line of clothing inspired by yoga and meditation and tranquility of the East.
