Are your jeans polluting the planet?

WE LOVE:

  • That there is a pair of jeans for every occasion…
  • … but still reflecting your personal style
  • Clothing that does not harm the planet

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Powder indigo requires more chemicals in the dyeing process compared to liquid indigo...
  • …all of these end up in the wastewater
