Réalisez vous le T-shirt sur-mesure ?

Avant tout, il est important de re-définir le Le sur-mesure, car en effet cette appellation est tout simplement la réalisation d'une pièce dans un tissu tissé  : costume tailleur, chemise pantalon de costume  ..; à partir de vos mensurations (mesures) prises à l'aide d'un mètre ruban.

Concernant un t-shirt en jersey, fait d'un tricotage du coton donc extensible, il ne peux être réalisé avec vos mesures, notamment pour une question d'aisance et surtout qu'un t-shirt n'est pas destiné à être porté comme une chemise ou costume. 

Le T-shirt était originellement porté comme sous-vêtement par les G.I , mais est désormais employé comme un vêtement à part entière, marquant la décontraction de son porteur, particulièrement l'été.  

Même si Philippe Gaber à revu la coupe du T-shirt en le proposant légèrement ajusté, il reste le vêtement en forme de T qui vous suivra à travers les années et outrepassera les modes qui sont elles, moins éthiques et éco-responsable. 

Par contre comme le sweat-shirt bio, vous pouvez demander à Philippe Gaber de couper votre T-shirt bio plus long ou plus court pour le bas tout comme pour les manches. 

Il arrive cependant par une certaine déformation que l'on me dise :" Mais oui, il fait sur-mesure car c'est vous qui le fabriquez ! "  En effet c'est bien moi qui le coupe et le confectionne dans son intégralité depuis mon atelier à Paris mais pas à partir de vos mesure. Donc le sur-mesure, devrait ici, être remplacé par " Oui il l'a fabriqué ( confectionné)  spécialement pour moi depuis son atelier car vous commandez et je fabrique ! " 
ce qui est plus chic.

Bref, Vous l'aurez compris, tout cela pour vous dire que tout est fait par une seule et même personne : PHILIPPE GABER lui même et ce, depuis 2009 ... Même si bien entendu il souhaite à l'avenir s'agrandir et ne plus porter toutes les casquettes. 

Un T-shirt GOTS vs un T-shirt OEKO-TEX® ...

T-shirtDe plus en plus la confusion est portée par des marques peu scrupuleuses, affichant t-shirt super éthique, super propre, super écologique et biologique, et pourtant ils ne sont que OEKO-TEX® Standard .... 

A la différence de Gots ( Global Organique Textile Standard ) Un t-shirt ou produit OEKO-TEX® signifie juste que le fil qui a servi pour la fabrication et tricotage de votre t-shirt est garantis sans  substances néfastes pour l'homme et pour l'environnement. Rien d'autre ! Un t-shrit OEKO-TEX® ne garanti en aucun cas la façon dont le jersey de votre T-shirt a été cultivé, tissé, ne garantis pas que 90% d'eau en moins, qu'il soit tricoté avec un aspect social et éco-responsable et encore moins  sur la manière dont il fabriqué ensuite ! 

OEKO-TEX® c'est pour votre T-shirt juste le fil soit 10 à 15% de tout le processus de fabrication de votre t-shirt. 

OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 s'adresse uniquement à tous les fils : fils pour tissé, coudre, et broder ou pour certain produits comme les zip ... mais cela ne vas pas très loin utilisé seul. 

C'est associé au Gots qu'il aura pleinement tout sons sens 

car GOTS vous garantis une totales transparence depuis le moment ou il est cultivé jusqu'au moment ou vous recevez le produit. Philippe Gaber se bat corps et âme à ce niveau et fait toutes les démarches (un processus long) pour être certifié GOTS 

Mais il ne supporte pas que l'on puisse vous tromper et vous porter à confusion sur quelque que chose qui est essentiel et l'avenir,  par une équipe de bras cassé de marketing qui ont lancé un t-shirt marketing simplement OEKO-TEX® et surtout trompeur car sois disant totalement propre ....

Le coton pas très écologique non ?

En effet, dans l'industrie textile traditionelle et polluante, le coton utilise énorméméent d'eau, 

C'est pourquoi Philippe Gaber utilise,exclusivement du coton textile biologique et certifié Gots  depuis 2009, car celui-ci consomme jusqu' 90% d'eau en moins que le coton conventionnel ! 

De plus, il est tissé en France pour les mouchoirs, ce qui réduit largement notre impact carbone car toute la chaine jusqu'a la livraison du tissu sont avec une démarche éthique et éco-responsable. 

Un peu moins pour ce qui est du Jersey mais celui-ci est quand même tricoté au Portugal, donc à beaucoup moins d'impact que s'il venait de d'Inde. ( la France n'aime pas penser et proposer du jersey ou sweat Gots car c'est très peu intéressant et surtout au vu des quantités minimales de 600 mètres qui encourages fortemment le gaspillage et la sur-consommation. ) 

Philippe Gaber est aussi à l'affût de nouveaux matériaux  éthique et éco responsable, il y a eu le bmabou mais il s'est avéré qu'il consomme bien plus d'eau que le coton. 

Par contre Philippe Gaber espère que par exemple l'ortie sera plus accessible car elle a toutes les propriétés du coton, pousse partout et ne consomme que très peu d'eau, tout en offrant un tissu extra doux (qui ne pique pas) et encore plus robuste comme fibre que le coton. 

Philippe gaber souhaite aussi re travailler plus amplement avec le lin Gots récolté en Seine et Marne, tissé en Belgique par la plus prestigieuses et ancienne manufacture du lin. Mais il espère que cela lui sera plus accessible qu'a ce jour avec moins de contraintes de quantités minimales trop importante sollicitant le gaspillage permanent. 

Car même si on travaille du coton bio, Philippe gaber lui, ne gaspille que très peu de matière car elle est commandée en petite quantité au plus juste, limitant sa fabrication et ne participant donc pas un une fabrication polluante, intempestive incitant une sur-consommation et donc un total gaspillage de j'achète je mets et je jette. C'est ce qu'il y a de pire que l'eau utilisé pour le coton. 

De plus, les chutes générées lors de la coupe par Philippe gaber sont soit réutilisées pour en faire un sweat ou t-shirt pour enfant,  des chiffons ou doudou pour les voisins, redonnées aux écoles de mes petits voisins pour les ateliers bricolages voir même a des étudiants en école de mode réfléchissat sur comment recyclé et réutiliser ces chutes pour en faire des créations à part entières. 

Le Chanvre quant à lui n'est pas idéal pour le vêtement car trop rigide et trop peu agréable pour l'instant. 

Philippe gaber espère aussi de tout coeur, que ses chutes de tissus soient totalement recyclées pour en refaire un nouveau tissus.

il a déjà proposé des cravates et foulards en chute de coton bio et chanvre recyclé et retissé, Même si le tissu est vraiment super, celui-ci n'étant que proposé depuis la Chine l'impact négatif là encore est plus fort que la démarche.
