MUD Jeans embarks on a journey toward waste-free fashion through its strategic approach to circular design and production. Grounded in the careful selection of materials, their products are composed of organic and recycled cotton, seamlessly blending simplicity with mindful crafting. The venture, initiated by Bert van Son in 2012, stemmed from a depth of experience and a discerning eye on the wear-and-tear of both planet and factory workers in the fashion industry.
What stands out:
- Circular Economy Adherence: Crafting jeans that embrace a non-linear production cycle, ensuring materials retain their highest value and are reincorporated into production, aiming ultimately for jeans from 100% post-consumer recycled cotton.
- Fair Production: A commitment to not just quality, but also the welfare of workers, involving fair, safe conditions and a strict avoidance of harmful substances throughout the production process, upheld by GOTS certified cotton usage.
- Advocacy with Positivity: Actively sharing knowledge, opening dialogues about circular business practices, and inviting interaction and inquiry from diverse audiences.
In the practice of recycling jeans, MUD Jeans has devised a system, that not only conserves materials but also elevates the standards of production ethics. Their models indicate significant impact; for instance, saving 61.7 million liters of water and circumventing 251,047 kilos of CO2 emissions in 2022 alone. With an upward trajectory and a transparent approach, they illuminate a path in which business, environmental mindfulness, and social responsibility converge harmoniously. They’re not just crafting jeans; they’re weaving a story where every thread counts towards a healthier planet and happier people.
