What is gluten exactly and is it bad for your chakras? What’s the difference between free-range and organic? Is veganism still ethical if it entails a lot of food miles? Are Monsanto the Illuminati? We don’t know, but for some inexplicable reason these organic, gluten-free, vegan denim jeans by Naked & Famous sound like the most morally righteous garment ever created.
The environmentally-friendly “Organic Vegan Selvedge” is a 12 oz. Japanese selvedge denim made from unbleached organic cotton and dyed using natural indigo. This natural indigo dye is derived from the Indigofera plant which is both sustainable and recyclable, and after the pigment has been extracted, the plant residue can be composted and used as a fertilizer and the water reused to irrigate crops.
But that’s not all: the usually leather patch on the back is actually a vegan-friendly cardboard that has all the look and feel of leather, without any of the dead animal hang-ups that usually come with it. Did we mention they’re gluten-free too? Yup, no flour was used in the production process of these jeans at all.
Available in two cuts: the Super Skinny Guy and Weird Guy, both retail for $155 at Tate+Yoko.
