We wear jeans every day, and we want our jeans to have the values we can get behind and the fit we can get our behinds into. Enter The Project 1 Jeans. Well Made Clothes and Good Studios have partnered to create Denim, Well Made — a series of straight leg jeans (light blue, indigo and black), which are also the world’s most sustainable…
The Project 1 Jeans are the world’s most sustainable jeans, we think, and here’s why. They’re made from hemp, one of the world’s most sustainable fibres. Hemp doesn’t need any insecticides or pesticides to grow; it requires 50% less water to grow than cotton; and it returns 60% of the nutrients to the soil. We’ve also used nickel-free domes, recycled zips, and paper labels, so every component of these jeans has as little environmental impact as possible (they’re also 100% vegan). Did we mention they’re made fairly, in Melbourne, in Ethical Clothing Australia-accredited facilities?
Waste is one of the biggest problems in the fashion industry, so we also need these jeans to fit perfectly. The Well Made Clothes and Good Studios teams brought the bits and pieces from their favourite vintage jeans to the table. We then passed these over to Australian denim experts to turn them into the straight leg jeans of our dreams. The Project 1 Jeans, with high waist, slim-straight leg, and contrast stitching, are the result.
