Counterstroke T-shirts are part of a community project to challenge the meaning of the letter Z used as a "logo" on Putin's war propaganda.
The print on the T-shirt was designed by font designers Eino Korkala and Daniel Coull.
The crossed-out Z forms an entirely new symbol, one which has historically been positive and means things such as friendship, alliance, equality, heaven and earth (also represented in the flag of Ukraine).
Join the resistance to Putin's militant Z symbol. We will donate all proceeds from the sale of Counterstroke T-shirts to Unicef to help children in Ukraine.
The Pure Waste T-shirt has a straight cut and a low hem. The rib around the neck opening is narrow. This unisex model is sold using men’s measurements. Women should choose one size smaller than usual.
This T-shirt has been responsibly manufactured in our factory in India. The logo is printed in Finland.
Made of 100 % recycled raw materials.
• 60 % recycled cotton • 40 % recycled polyester
Please note that our recycling process is not entirely clinical and our products may contain small amounts of different coloured fibers. In dark colours, fibers of different colours do not stand out, but in light colours they are more easily visible. For us, these little coloured fibers in our fabric are a feature that reminds us of the uniqueness and origin of our products.

Challenging the clothing industry
Collecting and sorting waste
Pure Waste products are made of 100% recycled raw materials. The main raw material, cotton cutting waste, is collected from cut, make and trim (CMT) factories and then sorted by quality and colour.
Each quality and colour batch is mechanically opened into fibres. The colour of the waste defines the colour of the final product. No dyeing is needed.
The mechanically opened cotton waste is mixed with chemically recycled polyester fibres from PET bottles.
The mixed fibres are spun into yarns. This part of the process is the same as when spinning fibres from virgin material.
Knitting and weaving
The yarns are knitted or woven depending on the final use of the fabric.
Depending on the final use of the fabric, the finishing process can include different stages such as compacting, brushing and washing.
This process consists of the cutting, making and trimming of the final product.
Finally, we get sustainable good quality garments that use 99% less water and generate 50% fewer CO2 emissions in the production process than similar products made of virgin materials.
