11 of the Best Organic Polos to Print & Embroider

Here we go, an update to our article on the best organic polo shirts for personalisation. Originally published a few years back, it’s an ongoing take on the best polos currently available to print and embroider in the UK. We’re talking about high quality shirts ready to have your logo added. Because that’s where the best personalised polo shirts start – with the base, plain polos designed for customisation. Throw in a spot of expert embroidery or custom screen printing and you end up with something special.

For context, this is a slightly longer list with 11 eco-friendly blank polos instead of 9. And we’ve been flexible insofar as including a couple of styles with recycled content. Simply down to the fact we figure they may be of interest if organic apparel is on your radar. That aside, the humble polo is a great garment to customise because of its suitability for so many different situations. For example, work places, whether it be formal casual staff uniform or practical attire for trades people. And just think about sport and active pursuits where the possibilities are enormous. Not to mention fashion branding. So, let’s go, a carefully curated selection of sustainable polo shirts.

Specifically, the Stella Elliser polo shirt (STPW333) which is mostly organic ring spun combed cotton with a little elastane in the mix for comfort.

7. Stella Paiger Polo Dress

Yes, yes, we know, this is meant to be about the best organic polo shirts to personalise. Not adorning eco-friendly dresses with a logo. Well, if it helps, try to think of the Stella Paiger Polo dress (STDW162) as a really long polo shirt. Which is actually not too far from the truth of the matter. Certainly in terms of the top half of the garment. That’s to say, this dress is all polo shirt from the waist upwards. And the weight and organic piqué fabric also has a decidedly polo vibe. That aside, it’s a high quality, chic piece of clothing.

8. Neutral Classic Organic Polo Shirt

Next we have another shirt that’s environmentally okay and designed for decoration. The Neutral® Certified Responsibility™ Classic Polo (O20080) is made from organic Fairtrade cotton and weighs in at a very respectable 235 g/m². Incidentally, we mention weight because it can bring a real feel of quality to this sort of garment. Plus, it helps with embroidery. Beyond that, this is a rather stylish number with slightly fitted shoulders and a tailored sleeve. By the way, the supplier also produces a ladies Classic polo shirt.

10. Stanley Stella Mini Sprinter Kids Polo

No compilation of polo shirts purpose made for customisation would be complete without a junior choice. And to that end we have the Stanley Stella Mini Sprinter (STPK908). It’s been on the list in the past and remains one of the best polos for children that’s out there. In truth, kids organic polos designed for print and embroidery in the UK are not as common as you might think. Which isn’t the most desirable of situations and one that hopefully changes in the future. However, in the meantime we have this sustainable gem.
