Thanks to the nature of the hemp fibre, your tee should last a very long time.

If you want to make a deposit back into the earth, cut the tags out and whack it in the compost, it is fully biodegradable and compostable (it's made from plants, mate).

The colours of our tees are designed to fade over time with washing and sun exposure. For the best retention of colour, please cold wash and line dry inside out, out of direct sunlight.  If your tee fades or stains to a point that you want to give it new life....

Buddy tees take dye super well! We've had some stories of people re-dyeing their tees so they can keep wearing and loving them! We love that.  We're working on some tutorials to show you how to dye your tees with natural dye.

We're passionate about closed-loop recycling, and taking responsibility for the full life of our products, so we're brewing ideas on how to incorporate this into the Buddy kaupapa.

If you have any bright ideas or suggestions, we'd love to hear them!
