12 Sustainable Denim Brands You Should Know About

These brands have the fall looks you’re going to love!

We’ve got the denim you’re looking for to create your favorite fall look. Whether it’s jeans, jackets, jumpers, or tops, you’ll find what you need on this list to pair with that knobby cardigan, throw over your everyday autumn dress, or fancy up your go-to vegan Uggs. So grab that PSL and give yourself a minute. Here are 12 sustainable denim brands you should know about.

Boyish

For women’s denim designed in Los Angeles, check out this woman-owned company. You’ll find vintage looks with contemporary twists—melding men’s fabrics and fits into designs made for women whose style preference is … well … Boyish.

Triarchy

We’re loving the denim looks from this carbon-neutral brand! Triarchy not only produces sustainable jeans that are responsibly made, working only with companies that support both human and animal rights, they also give back to the community by supporting rainwater harvesting for those without access to fresh water.

Nudie

This Swedish-based, 100% organic line knows a thing or two about sustainability. They craft their jeans to become your future well-worn favorites using no extra treatments or washes. Quality, eco-friendly construction combined with free repairs and a re-use program (shop their “pre-loved” denim!) will have you feeling great about looking good.

Nudie

Mott & Bow

You’ll find what you need for everyday looks at Mott & Bow, including shirts, dresses, tees, and sweats, but heads up—only the women’s jeans are vegan. Their men’s jeans are made with leather back patches. Operating from their family-owned manufacturing facility, this brand controls water usage, waste, and quality. Sticking to a simplistic design process allows them to get you a great product at reasonable prices.

Porter Blue Apparel

I scream, you scream, we all scream for vegan leather back patches! Porter Blue Apparel answers the call with these simple, clean designs appropriate for all occasions. Leaning heavily on vintage classic looks, the company adds its own modern take and does so while stepping as gently on the planet as possible.

Todd Shelton

When Casual Friday turns into Casual Whenever, Todd Shelton is ready with men’s looks that reflect classic style with minimalist design. These New Jersey-produced jeans come available in darks, lights, and whites with accompanying shirts, shorts, and sweatshirts to round out your wardrobe.

DL1961

This New York-based, family-owned brand takes pride in producing jeans that use less than ten gallons of water to manufacture (the average pair requires up to 1,500 gallons!). Constructed from old denim and post-consumer waste, the line’s inclusive sizing encompasses tall, petite, and maternity. While you’re shopping, pick up a new denim jacket for the doggo!

Warp + Weft

If you’re looking for size-inclusive styles at affordable prices, Warp + Weft is your go-to spot. They’ve got designs for tall, petite, and maternity and offer cuts that include skinny, straight, wide leg, and bootcut. This family-owned brand recycles 98% of the limited water they use to manufacture their denim, skips the eco-yuck bleaching, and supports ethical practices and a positive work environment for their employees.
