sustainable denim

Remember we have told you about Canadian denim brand, Triarchy, closing their production for one year in order to re-group and become a totally sustainable jeans brand…

Well, it certainly paid off for them and serves as a fantastic example for other fashion brands to go this way: become sustainable.


“Sustainable denim brand, Triarchy, received the prestigious Fashion Impact Award at the 5th Annual Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards, CAFA. Presented to a Canadian brand for making significant social or philanthropic impacts in the Canadian and/or international community, the Fashion Impact award win marks an incredible milestone for the brand. Alongside Triarchy’s first-ever CAFA win, Triarchy also received the inaugural H&M Sustainability Award, which includes a $10,000CAD grant and invitation to the 2018 Copenhagen Fashion Summit.

“Being recognized in the categories of Fashion Impact and Sustainability are a testament to the work and research we have been doing at Triarchy. It is our mission to shine a light on irresponsible denim manufacturing practices and forge a new way in making jeans. CAFA’s acknowledgement of this means the world to us. We could not be prouder to be recognized as leaders in this space” – Adam Taubenfligel, Designer and Creative Director

Triarchy is dedicated to educating the world on the waste and pollution caused byglobal denim production.With a mission to reduce the amount of water used in the creation of denim, Triarchy successfully produces a globally accessible contemporary ready-to-wear collection of sustainable denim piecesfor men and women. Using repurposed materials, recycled goods and sustainable washing and bleaching processes, TRIARCHY has saved over 1,000,000 gallons of water to date.

Produced at leading environmentally conscious manufacturer’s in California, Mexico and Italy, Triarchy is continuing to disrupt the market by producing denim jeans, jackets and dresses using over 85% recycled water during production. Relying on nature, Triarchy’s production in Mexico City uses natural bacteria, which consume the indigo before re-introducing it to the wash process. Triarchy’s Atelier Denim line is made exclusively of vintage denim and Triarchy jeans are made from sustainably sourced & washed material. Triarchy is taking a stand to raise innovative standards in the denim industry one pair of jeans at a time.

“We want people to be aware of how much water they’re wearing. Winning this award is a huge honour, and we are excited to continue making a difference in the world of fashion.” – Ania Taubenfligel, Brand Manager.
