Ideal humidity levels and warm temperatures allow cotton plants to thrive in Peruvian valleys, producing longer fibers that have a silkier feel when knit. The result is a softer fabric with an improved drape that moves with your body for increased comfort.
"We’re working with a renowned factory in Peru. It’s a step up in quality and workmanship, but more importantly, it allows for greater consistency. It’s vertically integrated, so they spin their own yarns and everything is housed under one roof, which allows for greater control."

While the new Daily Tee is inherently softer, we still put it through a softening wash for a well-worn feel pulled straight from the box.
We’ve also changed how the shirt is dyed, opting for a piece dye treatment (in which fabric is dyed before being cut and sewn into a t-shirt) for more even, consistent color.
Speaking of color, we’re launching the made-in-Peru Daily Tee in a curated range of sun-faded hues. Dusty brights are the perfect pop of color under a v-neck sweater or second t-shirt, while bleached shades are a subtle alternative to the plain white tee.
"It looks like a t-shirt you’ve worn and loved for a long time. We gave a range of colors that are maybe less expected, or less typical. This palette will bleed into our polos and shorts and lead into what we’re doing this summer, which is really beach-driven and will feature special dye techniques."
