We shine a spotlight on sustainable fashion with some information about bamboo & hemp t-shirts by Perth-based business Sacred Official. Join us as we chat with Priesh from Sacred Official about his range and a behind the scenes look at what’s in store for the range.
Sacred Official’s natural, low-tox bamboo & hemp t-shirts are a must-have for your hubby’s Christmas present this year.
Living a healthy lifestyle starts with is eating right, exercising and lots of water. But your skin is like a second gut, it naturally absorbs whatever you put on it. Broken into plain English, it absorbs anything it comes into contact with. Unfortunately this also includes toxic chemicals from beauty products, fragrances, clothing, bedding and more!
Sacred Official use bamboo, hemp and organic cotton to bring the wearer as close to nature via their clothing as possible.
Did you know … Imported clothing to Australia has different legislations dependant on the country of origin. Chinese legislations for instance are actually much better patrolled than other countries. What it means is that clothes from some countries may well have been doused in extremely toxic chemicals or ‘cleaned’ in dirty and infected water.
Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic to those with sensitive skin, this low-tox option is blended with Organic Cotton to create a luxuriously soft and breathable material.
Experience the earth and skin friendly fibers via a number of shapes, colours and fit to suit your style. If you’re considering your Christmas gifts now, the Slim Bamboo Tee’s are the most popular option for the environmentally conscious man. A variety of other cuts and colours are also available online.
Bamboo reduces your exposure to toxic chemicals but is also incredibly eco-friendly. For more information on Bamboo check out their brand new website. It is also ultra-versatile material with thousands of different uses
Zero Waste Hemp T-shirts are coming soon
December 2018 welcomes the expansion of the range with Hemp shirts, just in time for the Christmas wish list. The conscious fashion buyers are trending towards hemp fabrics for the ‘cleaner’ low-tox process in which the materials are created and preferring the more natural-to-touch fabric.
Bamboo & hemp t-shirts are both from incredibly sustainable sources. Both are loved for their little to zero waste qualities and are so versatile to use in so many ways. Hemp and Bamboo are two of the best options as you are able to cut the plant and it still grow at a fast pace, unlike traditional sources of timber and cotton. Understand more about hemp.

Behind the bamboo & hemp t-shirts
Originally expecting to write about the sleek logo design and the use of eco-friendly hemps and bamboo. I also found some quite profound words of wisdom from business owner Priesh that I’d like to share. Priesh is a true representation of his brand for all the best reasons.
Let me explain
Being from a design background myself, it was the Sacred Official Logo that originally struck me. I needed to know more about this beautifully constructed, simple and enviable design. So to find Priesh was from an architectural background, I was not surprised. Now a yoga master with a keen need for a more natural lifestyle, Sacred Official brand was born.
I had heard of mediation while eating as a form of gratitude. Spending time to be thankful for the food that is on your plate, for the process and the people that made it all possible.
“A tip is to eat with your hands. Using a fork creates a barrier”. A barrier between yourself and the food, doesn’t allow you to fully appreciate your food, whilst making the meditation and the taste of the food that much better.
“Also like when babies are eating. Try to give them food from a spoon and they reject it, straight from your hand, they will take it.”
“It applies to other things like shoes – how many times do you see a baby kicking and screaming until they can take their shoes off” It’s the same principle, the shoes are a barrier between us and nature.
[For those who haven’t read about my own journey to meditation, find out more here.]
Opting for low-tox, natural clothes such as bamboo & hemp t-shirts are the most genuine way to exercise this lifestyle, one with no barriers. One which we all crave for, that I believe more people are opening our eyes and our minds to. One that I believe (or by all means HOPE) to be the future and not the past.
