Polos and LS tees / Organic Polo Shirt
Polo shirts are awesome, and with a touch of quality and a Rapanui fit, we're bringing them back.
In our take on the classic polo shirt, we've used the best 100% Organic Cotton pique to give a soft, breathable and natural feel with our subtle logo to add the classic touch.

About our Organic Polo Shirt
This traceability map shows the supply chain of our organic cotton jersey and fleece products, which make up the majority of our sales.
The Organic cotton is plucked in Ahmedebad, North-Western India - and transported to a local ginning factory by a camel. The ginned cotton is taken by truck then cut and sewn in Coimbatore in the South. Both factories are members of Fair Wear Foundation and powered by vestas wind turbines. The products are shipped from Tuticorin to Felixstowe, and then trucked to Plymouth where they are printed using phtalate free inks, and hand finished with trims, using labels made locally. The finished product is shipped to, and dispatched from, Rapanui HQ on the Isle of Wight.
It is impossible to make an ethical choice if you don’t know where clothing comes from and how it is made. Very few people do these days, even high-street stores themselves. At Rapanui you can investigate the whole supply chain and find out the details about where this item was made, who made it, and how it got here, from Seed to shop. It is called traceability.
