OUR PROMISE

We believe social and environmental responsibility has never been up for debate. We have a promise to our customers, followers, colleagues and all stakeholders in Black Spell. It is that we will not compromise our social and environmental ethics in any areas of our business, including creating our products.

TEE PRODUCTION

Our unisex tees are screen printed here in the UK onto unisex jersey crews, made from 100% ring spun cotton. These tees are manufactured in the United States with eco-friendly production – ultra efficient dye machines save over 24 million gallons of water a week and their manufacturing facilities produce almost zero landfill. Dyed and cut in the United States, these garments are then assembled in the U.S. or Central America. They are also 100% sweatshop-free and Platinum W.R.A.P. Certified.

Our organic tees are screen printed here in the UK made from the best raw materials, grown or produced in ways that do not harm people, animals or the environment. Using exclusively 100% GOTS certified organic cotton from India.

WATERBASED INKS

At Black Spell we endeavour to try and only use waterbased inks on our apparel, as opposed to the mass market standard plastisol ink. Plastisol’s chemical base is made up of something called polyvinyl chloride (or PVC), which is composed of a plasticizer liquid and PVC resin (i.e. harmful chemicals). PVC is valued for its ease of use and versatility in mass production. As a compound, water-based ink is much more gentle on the environment than plastisol ink. It simply doesn’t contain any of the toxic chemicals of its plastisol counterparts (no PVC, no phthalates). Instead it’s comprised of naturally occurring substances.

DIGITAL RECIEPTS

When you make a purchase from Black Spell, you will not receive a printed receipt. Instead, when you receive your confirmation email from us shortly after your order is processed, it will have a digital invoice/receipt for your records. You can also create an account with us at any time with your email address in order to see your order history.

PACKAGING – REUSE AND RECYCLE!

Your order will be sent to you in one of our compostable mailers, designed to be 100% recyclable. Degradable mailing bags are a better choice for the environment and provide a way for us to minimise our waste. These mailing bags come with a secondary use glue line seal, so once you have retrieved your Black Spell items, we encourage you to re-use them! Your items will be sent out to you wrapped in paper where possible or naked, as to reduce the use of plastic (which is normally used as a single use garment sleeve).
