Last year, we started the Ultra Tee blog to fly the flag for sustainable and eco-friendly fashion - and we think we’ve built a powerful community where fashionistas can change the way they think about what they buy, and opt for clothing that not only looks great but does great, too.
One thing we haven’t been so good at, however, is flying the flag for our own range of tees - all of which are made from ethically-sourced materials and hand-printed with love in London and Paris.
Our tees are artisanally embroidered, made from high-quality, long-lasting fabrics, and come with free delivery and returns as standard. What’s more, for every tee we sell, we plant a tree to give back to our planet and do our bit to reverse the effects of global warming.
Whether you’re new to Ultra Tee (nice to meet you!) or a regular customer (welcome back), we’ve rounded up some of our favourite tee designs that you should add to your wardrobe…
Cactus Friends Tee
With our stunning Cactus Friends Tee, you can get closer to nature. Manufactured from 100% organic cotton, its design might be a little spiky, but it’s ever so cute!
Featuring an elegant, eye-catching print with greens, blues, yellows and oranges, we think this tee looks great with its sleeves rolled up and worn paired with some high-waisted jeans or a skirt - and you can rock it whether you’re off to the beach with friends or spending the day in the office.
If you’re a fan of birds, we think you’ll love our beautiful Kingfisher Tee, which sports a faded kingfisher bird in blue and grey colours. Printed onto our breathable 100% organic cotton ice blue crew neck, this graphic tee looks best when worn with a pair of jeans, and it’s soft-touch which is a great choice, whether you’re headed to the gym or grabbing lunch with friends.
As with all of our tees, we recommend washing this Kingfisher Tee inside out with similar colours at 30 degrees, and to maintain its water-based ink print, ironing inside out on a low temperature.
Look after your Ultra Tee, and it’ll last you for many years to come, and help you stand out from the crowd with a garment that will be the taking point of any get-together.
Apple Stripes tee
We think that every girl needs a striped tee in her wardrobe. Featuring summery white and blue stripes and a cute yellow apple embellishment, this Apple Stripes Tee is a real staple piece and looks beautiful whatever it’s paired with, whether you rock a pair of blue jeans and a pair of sliders or some Zella leggings and a cardigan for a relaxed, stripped-back affair.
Our friends over at Merrick’s Art has put together a super useful guide to wearing a striped tee in twelve different ways. Of course, we’re not saying that you should wear this tee every day, but the article demonstrates just how adaptable a striped tee can be - and how you can try out many different looks without having to fill your wardrobe with damaging fast fashion.
Long Sleeve Stripes Crab Tee
Whilst we’re on the subject of stripes, let’s talk about our Long-Sleeved Stripes Crab Tee. As the centrepiece of our spring/summer campaign for 2019, we think that this tee is one of our very best.
Made from 100% cotton at 175 gsm with an adorable crab embroidery on the left chest, this long-sleeved tee is great for all seasons - wear it on its own in the spring and summer and throw on a cardigan, hoodie or coat in the cooler autumn and winter months.
Why choose a long-sleeved tee over a short-sleeved? They’re great if you want to cover your arms, or you can balance out a long-sleeved look with a pair of boots and some jeans. Roll up your sleeves for a casual look, experiment with a short-sleeved tee over the top of your long-sleeved tee, or wear your long-sleeved tee around your waist - great if you’ve got a cotton vest on underneath in the summer months. The possibilities are virtually endless…
Parrots Speckled Tee
Finally, a quick squawk to our Parrots Speckled Tee. Made from 96% cotton and 4% polyester, this tee features a crew neck in a boxy style in a speckled cream colour - and some artsy parrots, flowers, and tropical leaves to keep you company!
Though designed for the summer, we think that this tee would look great throughout the year and lets you inject some colour and sunshine into those dull and miserable autumn days to come.
Made with love in Portugal and digitally printed in France with water-based inks, this tee is delivered for free and we’ll plant a tree for every tee sold. We recommend washing this one inside out on low heat, ironing inside out to protect the print, and avoiding bleaching to keep the colour and design intact.
Those little parrots are sensitive, so please look after them!
