Allbirds' new TrinoXO Tee for men and women boasts a soft and fresh feel, plus odor-reducing properties that come from a mix of materials. The t-shirts are made with a blend of TENCEL Lyocell, merino wool and Chitosan—a type of fiber that comes from exoskeletons.
The TrinoXO Tee made with discarded crab shells fits in with Allbirds' mission to create eco-friendly goods with a low carbon footprint, all the while making the most of the unique material’s inherent antimicrobial properties. While there are many chemically treated antimicrobial designs that are now being introduced, this one is a natural alternative. First, the material is made by grinding shells into powder, then coating the fabric with a natural material, extruding it and weaving it into fabric.
