Harrogate Store says SueMe®


SueMe® design and produce responsibly sourced sportswear and our Harrogate store is pleased to introduce their range with the Mens Tree Trunks and Ladies Beech Shorties (both £16). Manufactured from a supersoft Modal that's produced from Beech tree pulp they are fast drying and naturally antibacterial.
Made with a 210g knit with double gusset to balance fit and comfort with durability. 5% Lycra adds support and helps retain shape and fit, day after day, wash after wash. Seams are placed out of the way of rubbing or chaffing points. The care label is printed using water based inks. A mixture of flat and overlock stitching for comfort and
longevity combined with a scalloped edge knitted elasticated waistband with a soft brushed back make SueMe® Beech Shorties and Tree Trunks incredibly comfortable. The SueMe® slogan is knitted in a contrasting colour into the waistband. Easy to machine or hand wash and packaged in a box manufactured from recycled board which is printed using vegetable inks, the box also contains 3 beech tree seeds as part of SueMe®'s offset yourself program.
What goes around comes around®
