  • Pieces with prints are printed using inkjet digital printing techniques, reducing toxic run off from garment dyes.

As long as you look after and care for your sand&palm pieces, they will last you a long time and accompany you on many adventures. Should you wish for a change (it's only natural) please don't throw them away - offer them to a friend, exchange them for something else, take them to a clothing bank or a charity shop.
