Naturally Rooted In
Authentic denim is made mostly from cotton, a sustainable fiber. We recycle denim (made from cotton) to do good for the earth. We encourage you to rethink what your clothing is made of, refresh your wardrobe, and recognize we all can be doing more to lessen our impact on textile waste. Thanks to the renewability and circularity of cotton, we can reimagine the possibilities of what our old denim can become.
