Happy Earth Day: Behind the Brand

In honor of Earth Day, we're sharing the sustainable fabrics behind our latest arrivals. Earth Day is the perfect reminder to focus on environmentally friendly living. From lifestyle choices to recycling fabrics, there are countless ways to reduce our impact on the environment. When it came to the production of our latest arrivals we focused on two things: quality and impact. Keep reading to learn about the production behind our new arrivals.

At Something Navy, we strive to work with environmentally and socially conscience manufacturers. We aim to have a positive impact and use natural and recycled materials as much as possible. We also work to use sustainable fabric manufacturing processes and work with natural fibers and dye processes.

From a shipping and logistics point of view, we try to reduce our carbon footprint and have a positive contribution back to society by giving back and donating all excess materials. Keep scrolling to get to know the innovative and extremely comfortable fabrics behind our basics.

Behind the Basics

One of our favorite sustainability tactics is shopping for pieces made of natural fibers, like cotton. Cotton is the go-to fabric here at Something Navy because it’s versatile, effortlessly stylish, and easy to wear. Not only that, but it's also a natural fiber making it both comfortable to wear and breathable! A win, win in our book.

When it comes to the perfect basic, quality is extremely important. That's why we sourced high-end Donegal fabric for our Crew Neck Donegal Tee and Pleated Shoulder Cropped Tee from Florence, Italy. Besides the incredible quality, the factory we used is very involved in supporting breast cancer hospitals. They take the excess materials to make special pillows usually in a fun heart shape to provide comfort to women undergoing treatment.

The Tee Bodysuit

A perfectly tucked-in tee without the fuss. The Tee Bodysuit combines all the right parts of a short-sleeve fitted tee and a snap-closed bodysuit. Made of the same soft, 100% cotton fabric as our Crewneck Tee, this everyday favorite is comfortable, breathable, and back as a bodysuit! Amazing for the tucked-in look, this boxy wardrobe staple is great for layering and adds a slight fashion twist on an otherwise basic tee. A reason to buy.

The Ribbed Tank Top

A slight fashion twist on an otherwise basic tank. The Ribbed Tank Top in black contains all the right parts of a perfect everyday classic tank. Made of soft, 100% cotton fabric, this u-neck fitted tank is soft, breathable, and pairs with just about anything. Great with jeans or loungewear, alone or under another garment, this tank is super soft, forgiving, and the perfect layering piece. Available in five colors–white, black, oatmeal, pink, and camel–so you can build your summer wardrobe around it.

The Crew Neck Donegal Tee

This short sleeve tee has a relaxed fit and is made of a natural Donegal Linen Blend material including Tencel lyocell (a sustainable fiber), silk, and linen. The silk adds a luxe touch while the linen provides a natural feel. The same ultra-flattering fit as our Junko tee and added pebbly texture make this the perfect staple to pair with your favorite jeans, sweaters, and blazers. Wear it as an every basic or on your way to the beach, its lightweight and airy vibe make this the transitional t-shirt your wardrobe needs this spring.

The Pleated Shoulder Cropped Tee

Meet the foundational piece to your spring wardrobe. A cropped and boxy length, short sleeve, drop shoulder with gathering along the seam, and multi-color Donegal speck gives this silhouette a novelty twist while still serving as an everyday basic. The manufacturer in Italy ensures hazardous chemicals are not present in their yarn and fabrics. Made as the same fabric as our Donegal Junko Tee and Clementine Set, this soft, cotton blend tee is easy to wear after the gym or dressed up for brunch with jeans.
