Levi's Releases Its Most Sustainable Jeans To Date
Featured on the women’s High Loose and the men’s 502.
After five years of research in circular denim design, Levi’s has officially launched its most sustainable jeans ever. As part of its Wellthread™ collection, the brand has incorporated a new natural material called Circulose developed in Sweden by re:newcell.
For those who are hearing about Circulose for the first time, this specific material is repurposed out of discarded cotton textiles from worn-out denim jeans. The process involves breaking down the unwanted fabric in water, while the color of the material is stripped away using eco-friendly bleach. Once the mixture dries up, it leaves behind a sheet of Circulose, which turns into viscose fiber. Afterward, the material is combined with cotton and woven into a new fabric.
Featured on the women’s High Loose and the men’s 502, the garments are made out of 20 percent recycled denim, 20 percent sustainably sourced viscose and 60 percent organic cotton sourced from Turkey. Take a closer look at both styles in the lookbook above and the gallery below.
