There's nothing particularly normal about throwing yourself into icy cold bodies of water... but who'd want to join a club for normal people, anyway?! Welcome to the Alpkit Swim Club!
We’ve been making tees since way back in 2004, so we know what we like. All our tees are made from soft, 100% organic cotton that’s Global Organic Textile Standard certified.
They’re produced by Fair Wear Foundation member Stanley Stella to ensure good working practices, and are locally printed in Nottingham using water-based inks.
100% Organic Cotton
180gsm ring-spun combed
To look after your organic cotton tee or hoody, wash it inside out at 30°C with similar colours and iron on the reverse of the print. Or wear it crumpled - we’re not judging. Avoid using detergents and conditioners where possible.
We have dedicated Repair Stations in our stores and we're fully equipped to breathe new life into your old kit. This includes spare parts, patches, new zips and wash and reproofing of your down and waterproofs. Pop into any store or contact us online for more info.
If one of our products does not meet your expectations upon delivery, or if during its lifetime does not live up to the demands placed upon it, please return it to us for repair, replacement or refund. If the problem is our fault then we will do this to your satisfaction. If it’s your fault then we will help out the best we can. Find out more about our Alpine Bond here.
How It Is Made
This tee is made from Global Organic Textile Standard certified organic cotton. Organic cotton farming produces significantly less CO₂, uses less water and eliminates the use of harmful pesticides. And it feels great!

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
End of life
