One of the best things with raw denim is that you can break them in – in your very unique personal way. This is so much cooler than the mass produced ready made fake fading and distressing you find on most of the pre-washed jeans nowadays.
In the past this has been more a guy thing – the patience to wear raw jeans over and over again util they become “personalized”. But for a few seasons now, we have been seeing more and more women getting into the “distress them yourself” mode. Actually, as per many sales professionals in denim stores, there has been a huge shift since this past summer, and more women have opted for really dark wash jeans instead of distressed ones.
Needless to point out that this attitude is also very environmental friendly and if you are sustainable-conscious, you are definitely doing your part in buying raw denim.
Just to remind you, quite a lot of denim brands, formerly known for their super distressed and washed-out jeans, are including raws in their collections nowadays. Like, for instance, One Teaspoon – who would’ve thunk, right! And so, while we’re at it, about sustainable and raw denim – we sourced some of the best ones around, in all price ranges and in all sizes.
