Denim and sustainability aren’t usually words you find in the same sentence. The industry is known for its laborious methods, unsafe handling of chemicals, dyes and processes like sandblasting, and unethical production as far back in the supply chain as cotton farming. But Australian brands are looking to change that. In fact, these brands are truly turning the model on its head, opting for ethical production throughout the supply chain, water-saving processes and of course safe manufacturing processes.
