Seventy + mochi emerges as a beacon of sustainability in the denim industry, weaving a narrative of environmental stewardship and social responsibility into each piece of clothing. Founded by a woman in 2020, the brand not only celebrates traditional craftsmanship and the empowerment of working women but also pioneers ethical practices in fashion.
At the heart of their product line lies the use of recycled and organic cotton, with an impressive saving of 98% of energy and 100% of water compared to conventional cotton farming. Seventy + mochi’s commitment to kinder production methods extends to incorporating hemp, known for its minimal water usage and soil-enriching qualities, and choosing eco-friendly alternatives to conventional elastane for better degradability.
Their diligence in materials selection shines through in details like FSC certified swing tickets, OEKO-TEX standard 100 back patches, and YKK eco-finished hardware, reflecting a broader commitment to reducing environmental impact. Packaging is another area where seventy + mochi stands out, ensuring that all materials meet the European EN 13432 standard for compostability, aligning with their goal to eliminate single-use virgin plastic.
In alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goals, seventy + mochi actively supports gender equality, responsible consumption, and reduced inequalities, a testament to their dedication to global progress.
