Friends In Denim ISKO
We had to search the ends of the earth just to find a partner willing to take on our innovative and responsible denim ideas. A close friend introduced us to ISKO—the leading maker of premium quality denim who has over 100 years of experience in the industry. At ISKO, Responsible Innovation is the heart of the business as they're committed to developing an integrated field-to-fabric approach in every step of the value chain. As a world-leading ingredient brand, they are the only denim mill in the world to have been awarded both the Noridc Swan Ecolabel and the EU Ecolabel.
The Nordic Swan EcoLabel is a sustainability label that evaluates the full life cycle of a textile product, from raw materials to manufacturing and post-production waste, ultimately guiding consumers in making smart, environmentally-conscious purchases. As the gold standard of environmental distinctions, Nordic Swan employs meticulous practices to ensure that standards are upheld.
The EU Ecolabel promotes the circular economy by encouraging producers to generate less waste and CO2 during the manufacturing process. The EU Ecolabel criteria also encourages companies to develop products that are durable, easy to repair and recycle.
