Distressed Hemp Jeans – Straight Cut
Are these jeans the best compromise between a tough material and a soft feel?
We think so.
Hemp fibres are 4 to 5 times stronger than cotton. Whilst 100% hemp fabrics are great, they do have a similar feel to linen – not the softest. Organic cotton, however, is super soft.
Our jeans are made with a blend of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton, giving the best compromise between strength and feel.
That’s not the end of the story though…
The hollow nature of the hemp fibre helps to insulate you from the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter. And, both hemp and organic cotton have some great eco credentials! (see “Environmental” below)
These jeans are in a classic indigo blue, mildly distressed and are a straight cut – they have more room around the thighs and bum than our slim cut jeans. They have a zip and a nickel free button at the top.
The distressing process is carried out with state of the art lasers, ensuring that the workers’ health isn’t affected by the nasty sand-blasting process.
We’re sure you’ll love your new jeans!
The clothes industry is a particularly dirty industry – we’re trying to do things in a better way!
None of our clothes contain polyester, nylon, or any other unsustainable man-made fibres, ensuring that micro plastics don’t end up in the sea. But that’s just the start. Below is a list of credentials that this product adheres to:
Organic Content Standard
The “Organic Content Standard – Blended” (OCS) certifies that part of the material used in this fabric is organic. In this case 45% of the fabric is cotton and is certified as organic. But what about the 55% hemp? Hemp grows like a weed and natually doesn’t require any pesticides or other polluting chemicals. Click the OCS logo below to find out more about their certification process, or visit our blog to see why we think hemp is the wonder fabric we need.
Fair Wear Standard
The Fair Wear Foundation is a non-profit organisation with the mission to “see a world where the garment industry supports workers in realising their rights to safe, dignified, properly paid employment”. The manufacturer of this product is certified to the Fair Wear standard. Click on the Fair Wear logo below for more detailed information.
Caring for your garment
A big chunk of the environmental impact a garment has occurs once it’s in your hands. These guidelines not only ensure that your garment will last, but also help to keep the planet cool.
- Only wash when it really needs it. This saves energy, water, your time and extends its life.
- When it’s ready for a wash, turn it inside out. This reduces the abrasion on the outside of the garment, and helps it to keep looking crisp for longer.
- Wash at 30 degrees. Yep, I know, we wash colours at 40 right? Well, there’s no need – it’ll look and smell just great when washed at 30deg (as will most of your clothes!). It’ll also help to cut your electricity bill too – winner!
- Line dry after washing. Hot washing and tumble drying can effect the dimensional stability and can cause fading of the colours.
