Can we create elegant denim with minimal resources and maxim quality?

WE LOVE:

  • Versatile and comfortable clothes that work from home to the office
  • Elegant wash-down looks that remain wash after wash
  • Garments that are produced using best-in-class technologies gentle with our planet

BUT DID YOU KNOW?

  • Elegant dark denim usually require two dyeing processes – yarn dyeing plus denim fabric overdyeing - to get both the color intensity and the washed-down contrast …which leads to significant consumption of water and energy
  • Fake denim or bull denim can be obtained with one step dyeing on woven fabrics but it’s difficult to get wash-down look and good fastness
  • When wash-down looks are required, we need superficial dyeing that tends to fade very easily.
