Inspired by Jeans for Genes day, which is this Friday, I wanted to do something a little special and raise awareness for this fantastic cause by choosing a denim, our dark blue denim to be specific, to be our #FabricOfTheWeek – and maybe even convince you to make your own pair of Jeans! If you need a little extra incentive, we’re offering 20% off ALL DENIMS until Sunday! Just use the code JEANS20 at the checkout.
A little bit about our Dark Blue Denim
It’s a thick, yarn-dyed organic denim with a strong twill that runs through it. The fabric has a beautiful depth of colour to it and is really unique. It’s incredibly durable and suitable for soft furnishings. Although it’s a tough fabric, it still has a beautiful drape to it. It’s also great for garments, because it has a little give on the bias.
This denim is hand-woven … yes, you read right. It’s all woven by HAND! Phenomenal! The dyes used are azo-free, and the cotton used to weave the denim is organic (although it has not been certified) and is totally biodegradable.
The spinning, weaving and dyeing of the organic denim is done in a cooperative and certified Fair Trade by the WFTO. As it is a hand-made product, the process uses virtually no electricity – including in the spinning process! The fabric also comes in a light and dark blue.
