String Theory

So much more than a necklace, this eye-catching, hardworking accessory can be worn in a multitude of different looks to express your style. From a necklace to a headband, a bracelet to an anklet, the strings in this scarf can be removed to make different accessories or color arrangements.

T-shirts are tubular knits and their bodies are cut from tubes of fabric to various dimensions depending on whether the tees are smalls or XX-larges. Once the bodies are cut from these tubes, there will be excess tube that is too small to have a tee body cut from, which normally would be considered waste. These T-Shirt Necklaces are made from these leftover scraps collected from apparel factories. Each necklace includes 20 strings.

Made in the USA by Green 3. For the construction of these necklaces, Green 3 partnered with Aspiro, a non-profit in Green Bay, Wisconsin that specializes in teaching job skills to cognitively disabled adults. The necklaces are cut and sewn by adults in the program, giving them an opportunity for independent living.

Each scarf may vary. Sorry, no choice of colors or length.

    Comments about T-SHIRT NECKLACE:

    I love this necklace! You can use all of the strands or just a few. You can make up your own color combos. You can double up some of the stands to have a multi layered look. The possibilities are endless! It is the best!

    Service and delivery comments:

    I wasn't expecting for it to be delivered so quickly! I just did normal shipping which said up to 9 business days but I received it in 3 days!

      This necklace was great. The colors were fantastic and I was so happy my difficult-to-shop-for cousin was so happy with it. We played cat's cradle and made chains before she went and used them for headbands and bracelets. She's in college and the comfort and versatility are great for her in the dorms, studying most of the time but getting out every once and a while. I'm thinking of getting one for myself now.

        Awesome for my fashion savvy mom. She also loves that it is recycled and made by people with special needs. It's a terrific green product that she will enjoy for many years.

        Comments about T-SHIRT NECKLACE:

        I was disappointed with the colors that were received. It was a gift so the person decided to keep it and make a few of her own similar strands of better colors. The colors received were speckled brown, navy, melon, and a burnt yellow.

            Comments about T-SHIRT NECKLACE:

            Love the fact that this product is great to wear and also highlights recycling and charity work. I and my step-daughter love unique pieces, and, since she is into "green" and "saving the planet," this t-shirt necklace was a perfect gift for her....was nervous about buying b/c you can't choose the colors of the strands, but the ones we got were all different colors, so it was fine. It is important to know that the actual strands that make up the "necklace" are all separate strands that can be taken apart and worn in any kind of way. They can be braided, tied together, wrapped, or almost anything you can think of. My stepdaughter has worn them as a headband, bracelet, choker, anklet...she loves it! She even let me have a few strands for myself.

              Bought this necklace as a gift for my sister, who works in the design/textiles industry. Needless to say she's a stylish soul. She loved it!

              Comments about T-SHIRT NECKLACE:

              Worst color combination. Beige, marroon,lime green, hunter green. I thought maybe I could just use some of the colors that matched (hardly), but then the necklace wouldn't be thick. I returned it immidiately.
