Back in 2019, we published a piece about the best hoodies for customisation and, as a tough 2021 dawns, we thought it a good time to take another look at the ever reliable hooded top. With this article, organic hoodies for printing and embroidery, we concentrate on organic cotton hoodies that are proven winners when it comes to custom decoration and rebranding.
Nowadays, awareness of how we treat the environment is a mainstream subject and clothing is included in the discussion. Sustainable textiles are a big deal and organic cotton a major part of the effort. We’ve noticed that more and more blank garment suppliers are embracing the organic trend. Hand in hand with that, an increasing number of consumers are basing their buying decisions on the sustainable nature of the product they want printed or embroidered.
Hoodies are a great example of how things are changing. The first glimpse of a hooded sweatshirt was in the dim and distant Thirties and we’ve come a long way. The evolution into everyday essential hasn’t been without problem. Its adoption as a streetwear staple initially lent it some unfavourable associations. Do you remember David Cameron’s now infamous ‘hug-a-hoodie’ speech in 2006? By the way, he never actually said those words, the phrase was coined in a critical Labour Party press release. Since then, the negative undertones have largely fallen away. These days, hoodies are a vital element in everything from workwear to high end fashion. So, here are some sensational organic hoodies for printing and embroidery (as always, numbered for reference rather than ranking).
