SUSTAINABILITY - DESIGNING THE FUTURE

Unlike the majority of denim brands that take their fabricʼs of the shelf from the suppliers, we create our own proprietary fabric - unique to us

We start from the very begining by selecting and using only organic or sustainable yarns for our all of our Rising Sun & Co jeans.

Each of our fabric start of with either Organic or BCI cotton, we then add other Sustainable or Recycled yarns such as : Tencel, Repreve, PCW Cotton, Ocean Repreve, Modal etc

 

SUSTAINABLE WASHING - WASHED WITH A CONSCIOUS

We take great care and attention when it comes to washing our jeans. This dedication starts at the begining when we manufacture and wash all our jeans in a state of the art energy efficent LEEDS Platinum Facility.

We wash all our jeans in the most sustainable way possible,washed using 85% recycled water. We only use fully certified sustainable chemicals by GOATS and ZDHC to the highest standards.

All washes are made with our in house 2 in 1 processing, where we eliminate all unnecessary steps, chemials and water.

We Dare to Care 

SUSTAINABLE FINISHING - DOWN TO THE SMALLEST DETAIL

We refine and define every step of sewing and finishing processing to make sure we do the very best we can to ensure we keep our brand commitment to sustainability

Our hangtags are made from recycled paper, the Metal buttons and rivets are made from recycled metal mixed together - each one unique

We use Repreve for our pocket bags too, from inside and out of the jean we take care for each and every part of the jean.

 

WHY RECYCLE? THE NEED FOR CHANGE

Most clothes are made using energy from coal-fueled power plants. This adds warming gases into the air we breathe and accelerates the global climate crisis.

In one year, the clothing industry contributes 1.2 billion tons of CO2 emissions into our air

We tackle this issue by working with our key partners in Manufacturing, who use Solar and Wind to power their factories.

we are commited that by 2025 we will not longer rely on coal-fueled power to make your jeans
