Utility Zero Cotton Jeans

$ 119

The style is straight with patch pockets at front and large back pockets.

The fabric is a compact and dense 2/1 weave, combining light weight with durability.

Please note that the Utility Jeans are delivered unwashed and will shrink about 5 cm in length when washed at home the first time. The width will be more or less the same after wash. In second wash, the shrinkage will be almost zero. Due to the natural behaviour of indigo dye, the jeans will also bleed, so please be very careful with light surfaces as these may be stained. After wash, the jeans will still bleed, but very less.

Why we haven't used cotton

The Utility Jeans are made from Zero Cotton fabric, entirely made from 100% wood fibers from FSC-certified forests in Europe. It’s a 2/1 construction deriving from workwear, which makes it hard-wearing and compact. The indigo dye means that the jeans will be unique after wear, your every move will determine the wear pattern on your Utility jeans and depict your life. By time, wear and wash, the colour of the jeans will become lighter as the indigo dye on the surface goes away and the un-dyed core of the yarn becomes more visible. The Utility jeans will only become more beautiful with wear and the more you wear them, but less you wash it, the stronger your wear pattern and contrast will be!

In terms of washing at home, please consider them to ”be a jacket” and wash as rarely as you can. Not because the jeans can’t take it, but because it does less harm to the planet and becomes more beautiful with age. Once you most wash it, use 40* C and make sure to AVOID SOFTENER. That’s the only area where wood fibers differ from cotton, they become really soft with the use of softener. Once you take them out of the washing machine, hang to dry and you will see that they have slightly more of a paper touch to them, but that will go away by wear, don’t worry!

The button used for the Utility jeans is also unique. We used a “new” technique which is thousands of years old, namely pure copper without any galvanization. We did this to make recycling and upcycling possible and also to save all the chemicals used in galvanization. Another added value is that the button will age with wear, each one individually and with your personal expression, all depending on how you wear your jacket.
