Friday’s Fab Find: Onno T-Shirts


There are certain staples every woman needs a few of in her closet even it’s an item she doesn’t like.  I hate t-shirts. They always fit me funny and just aren’t flattering to my body. But I need them to put under sweaters.  I have a handful of t-shirts. Most of them are cheap giveaways from promotional events.  They rarely last longer than a season before they fray too much for me to wear them anymore.

But I’ve found a great new place for FANTASTIC t-shirts and it’s so much bigger than the actual T-shirt!

Onno T-Shirts

Onno T-shirt company produces excellent high-quality t shirts from a company that prides itself on their responsible and ecological manufacturing practices.  Check out their site here.

Cotton is great. Really it is. But the methods used to grow and harvest it are particularly rough on the environment. Farmers use a huge amount of pesticides including some of whom were originally developed as nerve agents during World War II. Cotton also requires huge amounts of water.  Already in parts of the world, there are places bracing for desperate water shortages. Bamboo grows at a remarkable rate requiring only small amounts of water to do so, making it a very sustainable crop. Onno T-shirts are made in small family owned-production environments where people are treated well.

Onno T-shirts are available in:


Onno’s silky soft bamboo t-shirts are made for movement and designed to move with you.  It’s an amazing all-purpose shirt that is ridiculously comfortable and perfect for everyday wear.


Onno’s hemp t-shirts have a textured durable feel that will soften over time. Hemp is tough fiber that requires very little water to grow. The shirt itself is a bit warmer and a slightly heavier weight than the Bamboo shirt which makes it a perfect t-shirt for fall or winter.

    I play roller derby … at 50 (yeah I’m nuts haha). I wear T shirts at 2 hr practices an average of 3 days a week or more. As a plus size lady it’s hard to find a T shirt that I am not tugging and pulling at constantly. Post washing is always an exercise in contortion to get it to loosen up in areas that seem to shrink each and every time it hits the laundry. Flattering AND T shirt in the same sentence?? And it’s comfortable?? Seems like a dream .. like an impossibility. I would love to win one of these. I promise if I do win one, I will send you a photo wearing it in full derby gear 😁

      Winner! Send me your mailing addy

  • Kim Malkiewicz

    Of course, I’d like to win one. However, these look so great, I think I’m going to buy a couple. I’m, honestly, also quite impressed with the color selection. P.S. I feel the same you do about t-shirts, I tried just not buying anymore, but alas, I do need them. Have a great weekend, Bridgette!

    • Thanks, Kim! I didn’t write this, Cameron, my Fab Finds editor, did. I don’t dislike t-shirts as much as she does.

      • Aragon131

        I dislike most t shirts I love the ones they sent me. they are comfortable and fit well.

    I’d like to win! I need a good t shirt company to stock my summer wardrobe with shirts that will last. I wear plain t shirts almost every day.

    Despite the marketing hype, bamboo fabrics are NOT ecologically responsible. Yes, growing cotton takes a lot of water and the use of pesticides (unless you buy organic cotton). But turning bamboo wood into bamboo fiber uses the same process as making rayon. In fact, bamboo fiber is a type of rayon fiber. Rayon fiber is made from recycled and waste wood and paper, i.e., cellulose. The manufacturing process uses many harsh chemicals and, as almost all of it is done in countries like China and India, the chemical waste is dumped into the world’s water supply.

      Right on, Julie. It’s important that we in the affluent West understand the impacts of our clothing purchases. We can’t avoid the fact that everything we do has ecological and social effects, but we can make choices that minimize those effects.

      Hi Julie!
      I completely understand your concern about Bamboo.
      I’m happy to let you know that we’ve gone to great lengths to research and implement the least-harmful method possible. We realize that everything we humans make, has an environmental impact, and we try at every step of the process to mitigate as much harm as we realistically can.
      We’re also introducing an even more eco-friendly bamboo fabric this summer. I’ve been wearing a sample around the office and it is lovely. I would love to address any specific concerns or questions you might have, if you’d like to reach out to me at

    I would love to win. I am always looking for a great white tee shirt

  • tgchi13

    I’ve always been an organic cotton fan and would love to try a hemp tee!

  • Erin

    Such a timely post! I’m in the market for a new white t-shirt, and I love supporting non-cotton alternatives to the classic tee. I’m working on creating a professional wardrobe after returning to school and securing a professional internship, but I want to make sure everything I buy can do double-duty for my off-the-job casual life. A new white tee — in hemp or bamboo! — would be the perfect bridge piece.

  • Ruthie

    I’ve never worn hemp or bamboo, I wonder how it feels? It’s nice to see that it is environmentally friendly!

    • Bamboo feels amazing! I use bamboo sheets and they are beyond amazing.

  • Michelle

    Almost all of my t-shirts have holes. And, I don’t want to buy ones that aren’t sustainable, so I’ve been avoiding buying them. Sustainable shirts are usually expensive….Even if I don’t win, I’m happy to hear about another brand that’s making a difference!
