Origins of Heather

The heather range, also knows as CVC (Chief Value Cotton), refers to a cotton and polyester blend with a heavier percentage of cotton. It was originally constructed to lower import and export duties as cotton t-shirts were high in demand back in the day. But it's quality made them a favorite in the market.

However, due to high demand of jerseys, and other polyester apparel (which Nike brands "Dri-Fit"), polyester fabrics have become more expensive. Even more than cotton!

Polyester is essentially man-made polymer, commonly known as plastic. And funnily enough, in today's world, polyester fabrics in the 21st century incurs a higher import and export duty/tax. And this is because governments are attempting to curb the production of polyester (plastic) apparel.

Now before you feel guilty about wearing clothing that contains polyester, take note that polyester is used in apparel manufacturing so your clothes have a longer life span. Low quality cotton apparel have the tendency to shrink or go out of shape after a few washes. And end up in a landfill after a few weeks : (

So if you are wearing a heather t-shirt from SaltyCustoms, rest assure that it'll stay as your favorite t-shirt for a long time!
