We take a principled approach to customising clothes and merchandise at Fifth Column. That means caring about the rights of our team here in London, adopting the best practice for how we operate, and offering customers the best options for stuff like blank t-shirts. Garments which are produced in ways which respect the people who make them and also respect the planet. The acronyms and images might appear confusing at first glance, but eco standards and certifications are important for ethical t-shirt printing.
