The Most Sustainable Jeans on Earth

Sustainability Our Story

We're raising the bar, not only for ourselves, but for the denim industry at large.

DL1961 is a family-owned brand, creating premium denim with sustainability at our core since 2008. Overseeing the entire process from fiber to finished garment, we pride ourselves on our leading fabric and sustainability technologies. Learn more about how we're taking trash and turning it into your new favorite jeans, all our eco-friendly materials, and our commitment to social responsibility.

95% of old clothes could be
recycled, but only 15% are.

We've all gotten rid of plastic and old clothes, but where does it all
go? We're taking your old jeans and plastic bottles and turning them
into your favorite high-performance denim.

Giving new life to old jeans
starts with getting small.

We begin the process by shredding old denim and post-consumer
waste into smaller and smaller pieces, then weaving those into new
yarn with eco-friendly fibers and high-performance stretch.

State-of-the-art dyeing and
weaving.

The yarns are woven into your favorite lifting, sculpting, comfortable
fabrics and dyed using only the highest quality Dystar Liquid Indigo
pigments to minimize harmful byproducts.

Post-consumer waste +
waterless technology =
high-tech denim.

Your jeans are constructed and hand-finished using waterless laser
and Ozone technologies in our family-owned manufacturing facilites,
which are fully compliant with International Social & Environmental
Quality Standards.

Your jeans take about 1500
gallons of water to produce.
Ours take less than 10.

Thanks to all the ultra-absorbent fibers and waterless techniques we
use along the way. What's more, we treat and recycle 98% of the water
we do use in our in-house treatment plant.

The final product is denim
you can feel good about, in
more ways than one.

Finally, your jeans are quality checked and delivered. You get
sustainably-made jeans that make you look your best and feel even
better.
