We go the extra mile to source
materials ethically and employ
innovative, eco-conscious
manufacturing techniques.

Washing
Process

Utilizing three distinct technologies designed to replicate traditional denim washing methods without adverse effects, we ensure responsible production from start to finish. In our relentless pursuit to offer the most ethically crafted jeans on the market, our line has achieved a remarkable 80% reduction in water usage compared to conventionally washed denim.

Ozone Wash
We utilize Jeanologia's ozone machines for bleaching without traditional bleach. This ozone wash is a triplemolecule Oxygen (O3).

E-Flow
e-Flow technology is based on nanobubbles of air that act as a carrier to transmit chemicals into a garment with a minimal quantity of water and zero discharge.

Laser
For our finishing process, we employ Jeanologia laser machines, offering energy-efficient operations and ensuring safer conditions for workers' health.

  

 

 

Environmental Impact Measuring (EIM) software provides transparent metrics, assessing water and energy needs, chemical impact, and worker conditions. We provide an EIM score for every sustainability-washed garment. The average EIM score for our products is 27.

 

 

 

Our Fibers

The bulk of our production relies on organic cotton, certified by the Recycled Claim Standard (RCS).
This global guideline ensures the widespread use of recycled materials through third-party verification and traceability in the supply chain.

RCS
Objectives

-  Establish consistent definitions of recycled materials across various applications.
-  To minimize production waste, all surplus denim floor scraps (leftover after cutting) are sent to recycling facilities for reclamation and reuse.
-  Provide consumers (brands and end consumers) with a decision-making tool for informed choices.
-  Ensure the genuine presence of recycled materials in the final product.

Our Dyes
