Should your favorite clothes cost the earth?

We love:

  • Versatile and comfortable denim that works from home to the office from a relaxed to an elegant look
  • Garments that are produced using best-in-class technologies that are gentle for our planet and with high durability
  • An article of clothing that gives us identity

But did you know?

  • Polycotton denim is breathable and comfortable due to the cotton and with added durability, less piling, lower shrinkage and less breakages thanks to the PES component
  • The benchmark denim dyeing application is done on cotton yarn using large machines that requires significant amounts of water and energy…
  • … BUT are not efficient with small runs and not flexible for variation of color …
  • … and the colored cotton yarn is then woven with white PES yarn
