Made from high-performance drirelease® fabric, the Picu Tee is a lightweight moisture-wicking t-shirt that feels as soft against the skin as your favourite worn-to-death cotton number.
We wanted a t-shirt that would be as comfortable to wear on hard climbs, sunny bike tours and trekking overseas as it would down at the bar, cafe or pizzeria after a hard day’s activity. The Picu is made from recycled polyester and organic cotton.
The drirelease® fabric blends moisture-attracting fibres which draw sweat away with moisture repelling ones that allow for easy evaporation. This material blend dries 4x quicker than standard 100% cotton - pretty handy in hot weather or longer trips when you’ll have to wash your smelly kit through a few times.
The relaxed styling tee has a crew neck and articulated sleeves which provide complete freedom of movement when combined with the tee’s natural stretch.
Fabric: 85% recycled polyester, 15% organic cotton, 164gsm
Wash on a delicate cycle at 30°C or hand-wash with lukewarm water. Use a non-biological detergent or pure soap. Do NOT use fabric conditioners or softeners. Rinse thoroughly in clean water. Line dry and use a cool iron.

How It Is Made
Recycled MaterialsThis product is made from Drirelease® Eco fabric technology consisting of 85% recycled polyester and 15% organic cotton. The construction of the fabric uses hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibres engineered in a way that wicks moisture away from the body, pushing it to the outer surface of the garment for 4 x faster drying than a 100% cotton tee. This combination of fibres makes for high performance garments that perform day in, day out without the use of wash-in treatments.

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.
