OUR STORY

Minulta kysytään usein, mistä Piece Of Jeans:n käyttämät vanhat farkut tulevat, mistä saamme materiaalia, tai mistä kaikista työvaiheista Piece Of Jeans -farkkujen valmistus koostuu? Kuka farkkujen valmistustyön tekee, missä ja miten? Läpinäkyvyys ja vastuullisuus on yksi tärkeä osa tuotantoketjuamme, joten tässä blogijulkaisussa kerron farkkujen valmistuksen pala palalta. Tuotantoketju alkaa vanhojen rikkinäisten tai muuten poistoon joutuneiden farkkujen keräämisestä.

Piece Of Jeans is born of the idea of how old broken jeans, denim shorts, could be made into new ecological jeans. Old jeans, broken from the knees, may be patched with a piece of denim fabric, the so-called knee position. But what if we were to make denim patches "That thing" and make them into ecological, unique and spectacular women's and men's patchwork jeans.

"Does your jeans fall apart time and time again? What can you do with torn jeans that have broken thighs or knees? Or was your jeans smeared locally from paint, for example?" Intact unused or small clothing is already widely received in Finland, but some broken or stained clothes are still recycled and reused relatively little.

The production of jeans in low-cost countries is one of the biggest uses of cotton cultivation. The cotton field requires a lot of water and care in the form of various pesticides and chemicals, making it one of the most water consuming and most polluting industries on earth. Unfortunately, however, the story does not end there.
The journey of jeans from cotton to the finished product involves many stages, most of which are harmful to the environment. The most harmful is the process of bleaching jeans, which requires a large amount of water and is at the same time dangerous for people who are in contact with the chemicals needed for bleaching. Read on, Did you know these facts about jeans and how to make jeans. Do you know in which country your jeans are made? In low-cost production, there is talk of an irresponsible clothing industry.
