By buying a Horizon. shirt you do not only secure yourself a stylish piece of clothing, but also commit yourself to our environment. We attach great importance to an environmentally friendly and fair production. All our textiles are made of 100% organic cotton and are produced under fair working conditions and using renewable energy from wind and solar power.
The kids from the SOS Children’s Village Limón, Costa Rica, learn to catch some waves.
Matching our first collection, we supported the SOS Children’s Village with a final donation of CHF 850.00. The money will be invested in surf lessons for the children and teenagers. Many of them grow up in difficult family situations and are therefore very insecure. Surfing provides them a free time activity and might boost their confidence for their day-to-day life.

In order to produce our first T-shirt collection, we worked together with the Bernese companies Marzipan Shirts and Huber Textildruck.
Marzipan Shirts produces shirts and hoodies for companies, organizations, clubs, bands etc. Their whole product line is Fairtrade and our chosen products are made of 100% organic cotton. In total we had ordered 100 unprinted shirts at Marzipan Shirts. Afterwards we have printed our motives at Huber Textildruck. As printing method we have chosen screen printing. The result is durable, razor-sharp and comfortable to wear.
At this point we would like to thank you very much for the pleasant cooperation.
We would like to disclose the calculation of the costs. We expect a minimum income of 4’270 swiss francs. The production of 100 shirts (ordering and printing) has cost about 3’050 swiss francs. So it is our goal to donate at least 1’200 swiss francs to the project. Come on, we can do this!
