T-Shirts. They're clothes. Things we wear on our body. To us, merely a piece of cloth. We donate them, cut them up, and wear them. But we don't understand the process behind the T-shirt. How many people and work that goes into it.
First, there is the process of cotton. The root of the t-shirt. It's what the T-shirts made out of. First, there is a cotton picker truck that comes around a cotton field picking up the cotton from the cotton plants. Then, the cotton goes into machinery that cleans the seeds out of the cotton.
Next, the cotton is sent over to factories to be spun. There are multiple machines involved in the T-Shirt process. There is a machine that the cotton is out through to detract the cotton seeds that may still be on the cotton from the cotton plant. Then they are headed towards the spinners, which twists, stretches, straightens, and eventually spins the cotton into yarn spools and is then made into shirts. Then, there is a machine that can dye the t-shirts.
People is a topic of the shirt's journey. Without people, there wouldn't even be the invention of a T-shirt. People are the center of T-shirts. We sew them together, we work really hard to complete the process. Unfortunately most of the workers aren't treated correctly and don't have enough pay. We operate the machines, dye the cotton, pick the cotton.
The second to last stage is boxes, or boxing. The shirts are then done in the stages in dying and cotton. They are then boxed and shipped into our American Box (the box that is shipped and then sold into America) and then sent to stores for people to buy.
Finally, the T-shirts get to you! We buy them in stores and we give them to each other as gifts. It's the final stage of the making of a T-shirt. We don't always understand the works that goes into things, and the lives of the people who don't think about and don't consider, because all we think about is the t-shirt we get out of it, and to us it seems mere. But the process is actually fascinating.
