Reduce your global imprint while looking hot! Might cost you a pretty penny though.
Kuyichi was founded in 2001 to introduce organic cotton and fair trade jeans wear. We were 1st for organic. Kuyichi stands apart from most other fashion brands, since we manufacture pure, organic & fair trade. We create jeans & fashion with a super cool, sexy and street wise look & feel. Put together with respect to the people we work with. It is what we call Style Conscious. A conscious approach is more real to us. Being fair. Being real. It’s our philosophy.

Sling & Stones denim is made of American-grown organic Supima cotton, one of the finest and rarest natural fibers on earth. Our jeans are virtually pesticide-free, unlike the average cotton jeans which contain 27% harmful chemicals.

Sugar Cane: A Japanese company makes jeans out of a blend of sugar cane and selvage denim. The cane used is Sweet Sorghum, otherwise known as Sweet Millet or Sugar Millet. It’s a type of grass grown all over the world for making a molasses-like syrup and animal feed. The Sugarcane jeans that feature this fiber have a faint sweet smell and may have occasional woody tufts poking out of the fabric. Some jeans are dyed with persimmon.

We had a suggestion from an HonestForum member that we should do more posts about raw denim! In particular, we like Good Society’s denim. It’s a raw organic denim and is much cheaper than most of our designer jeans, starting around $90! Made from 100% organic cotton, Good Society’s jeans are woven on vintage shuttle looms and then are later sewn by skilled workers in India in accordance to Fair Trade regulations. Thus, these jeans really ARE good for society! They are available at RevolveClothing.com
