At Blue Fish, we use organic fibers, recycled cottons, and other natural fibers such as hemp, linen, and silk blends. A lot of our buttons are hand made, vintage, or recycled. It’s a step toward a people and planet friendly style of clothing.
In 1995 we first learned of the damaging effect of traditionally grown cotton on a global scale, and we changed our production habits immediately. We began to use organically grown cotton materials whenever possible. We are happy to do our part to help support a healthier people and planet.
Currently, traditional cotton agriculture uses twenty-five percent of insecticides and ten percent of the world’s pesticides, but represents only three percent of the world’s crops. Organic cotton has never known chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other dangerous chemical agents. Additionally, no chemicals are applied in the harvesting, cleaning, spinning, or knitting of organic cotton. This also means that the chemicals used in conventional cotton aren’t being released into the air and surface water during farming or processing. Beneficial insects keep other bugs under control, crop rotation maintains fertility, and weeds are battled with precision tilling. When the first frost of winter comes, the cotton readies itself for picking according to a seasonal rhythm. Organic cotton is grown from the heart as well as the soil by farmers who care about the earth and all of us.
WHAT SIZE AM I?
Blue Fish sizing is uniquely ours. We have developed this system to fit many body types, shapes, & heights comfortably. Here is the Blue Fish size chart and its traditional size equivalent:
00 – only available in select styles. fits up to size 6
0 – fits up to size 10
1 – fits ups to size 16
2 – fits up to size 22
3 – only available in our studio tees & some tunics. fits up to size 26
O/S – one size that fits most customers
Remember that each style is unique & has different measurements--please check the size chart on your item of interest for exact measurements! One style may fit you differently than other styles you have worn before and we strongly recommend checking the measurements before making your purchase.
You might wear a combination of sizes depending on your body shape and how you prefer the drape of your clothing. For instance, you might wear a size 0 pants and a size 1 top. If you prefer looser, more flowy clothing, size up--if you prefer more fitted pieces, choose those closer to your actual measurements. We provide measurements for each style so you can find the best fit for the way you like to wear your Blue Fish.
