Naked & Famous Denim is well-known for creating the most beautiful classic denim while also creating some of the most interesting jeans on Earth. They created a very timely and noble jean for Spring/Summer 2016: the Vegan Organic Selvedge Denim. Not one to jump on trends, Naked & Famous Denim watched such an important movement grow over the past number of years in the area of sustainability and conscious consumerism, and it would be a disservice to the world and clothing community to ignore such an important cause. Their first test in the market is to make raw selvedge denim accessible to those in the vegan and organic communities, so that's how the Vegan Organic Selvedge Denim came into existence. The Organic Vegan Selvedge is a 12oz Japanese Selvedge Denim made from unbleached organic cotton, and dyed using natural indigo. Natural Indigo dye is derived from the Indigofera plant which is a sustainable dye that can be recycled. After the pigment has been extracted the plant residue can be composted and used as a fertilizer and the water reused to irrigate crops. In addition the leather patch used isn’t leather at all. We’ve used a vegan friendly alternative made from heavy cardboard which looks and feels like leather. The fabric contains beautiful variations that only natural dyes and cotton can produce. The fabric is rigid and requires a short break in time. Oh, they're also gluten free! Available in the Super Skinny Guy and Weird Guy. P.S. We've had the pleasure of interacting with incredibly passionate Naked & Famous Denim fans and sustainability advocates, and the Tate + Yoko team wants to go one step further in supporting the community. Be sure to watch out for some exciting news in the coming days.
