Prewashing large amounts of denim can sometimes cause white creases to appear, due to the fabric not having room to move around. This can be remedied by adding the fabric to the wash while wet, or cutting it into smaller pieces before your wash.
🌱Sustainability: Organic from seed to finished product, our Renee Organic Cotton Denim is made with 100% certified organic cotton.
Non-organic cotton production is responsible for 25% of the world’s insecticide use and more than 10% of pesticide use – pretty staggering for just one crop. Traditional cotton is also incredibly water-hungry – it takes 20,000 litres of water to produce just 2 pounds of cotton. Organic cotton uses (on average) 30% less water – reserving more natural resources for the inhabitants of the often water-challenged countries where cotton is harvested.
💞Named in celebration of Renee Peters, a model-turned-environmentalist who is relentless in her work to turn “conscious consumers” into agitators and activists. Her Instagram is a really good follow.
