APPAREL & Homeware Product Info
APPAREL & HOMEWARE
Here at Henry and George we are sticklers for High Quality products, with this in mind Rachael & Andy have chosen to work with a company in France to produce all the Apparel and Homeware products we have on offer.
All our Apparel products are produced using environmentally friendly materials and methods and our Homeware products use recycled materials were possible and everything is printed using environmentally friendly inks. The finished products are soft and super comfy, you won’t want to take them off!
The materials we use to create our Apparel products are either 100% organic cotton or a mix of 85% organic cotton and 15% recycled polyester.
The Company that produces our products do not use any pesticides, insecticides or GMOs in the production of the materials they use, they use ecological dyeing methods, and all workers have good and fair wages and working conditions.
We are also proud to state that all our products are shipped using plastic free materials, but of course will still travel well protected and will arrive safely to your door.
All Apparel should be washed in a Cold Wash (maximum 30 degrees C / 90 degrees F)

Do not Iron on the Design!
Curiously, organic products are also of excellent quality.
We offer products made of two different types of ecological textiles:
- 100% organic cotton: Cotton is a resource-hungry material (especially water (2,700 litres of water are needed for one T-shirt, from the irrigation phase to production!) and its cultivation often involves the use of substances that are harmful to health (pesticides, insecticides and other chemicals that are frankly not very nice). This is where the SUPER alternative optioncomes in, organic cotton! Organic cotton is a healthy crop that requires much more reasonable water consumption (on average only 40 litres for a T-shirt). It is a wise choice if you want to combine quality and skin-friendliness without feeling guilty.
- Recycled textiles: In the midst of the whirlwind of unbridled consumption that is the textile industry today, recycled cotton and polyester are - ironically - a breath of fresh air. The principle? Conceive of textile consumption as a circular process, by re-using fibres from clothing offcuts (in the case of recycled cotton) or by transforming non-renewable materials such as plastic bottles into (recycled polyester).
Two different cases, same battle: products that are designed to be healthy, resource-efficient and have a minimal impact on the planet. And to top it all off, all these products are of excellent quality. They're not just okay, they're really great. All the conditions are in place to make them strong and durable pieces that will stand the test of time.
Our inks take care of your skin, but also of the environment.
The Henry & George images are printed on the textile using water-based inks, 100% eco-certified by OEKO-TEX® ECO PASSPORT and by the very serious GOTS 5.0 label, and are VEGAN.
In short, it is the best of the best.
