BYOTA T-Shirt apparel are entirely Made in Canada. That means that the imported thread (no cotton growers in Canada yet) is knitted, dyed, cut and sewn, and then printed or embroidered in Canada. The imported organic cotton and recycled polyester threads are knitted at Canadian knitting mills thus supporting jobs in the textile industry in Canada The 50/50 blend is made of organic cotton and recycled polyester, providing the best of both worlds, the softness of cotton and the durability of polyester. Once knitted BYOTA T-Shirt fabric is dyed in a Canadian dyehouse.
