THOUGHTFUL DESIGN AT EDWIN

Launched in Tokyo in 1961, the EDWIN brand set the standard for Japanese denim production. Here at EDWIN USA, we want to set a new standard, radically transforming the fashion industry from a take-make-waste linear economy into a restorative circular economy that fosters mindful consumption. That’s why our materials are sourced from a carefully selected network of suppliers; our jeans are made at Saitex, the world’s cleanest denim factory; and we offer free repairs for life alongside an upcycling program.

SUSTAINABLE RESOURCES

We strive to work with suppliers that are as committed to sustainability as we are.We also aim to incorporate circular materials as much as we can: For example, our labels are made from recycled plastic bottles and our hangtags are FSC-certified (meaning the paper was harvested in a responsible manner). By 2021, our jeans will also be made with recycled zipper tape and sewing thread.

RESPONSIBLE GARMENT MANUFACTURING

Our jeans are responsibly manufactured at SAITEX, a Vietnam-based factory that is bluesign-approved with B Corp, Fair Trade and LEED certifications. Using innovative technologies to reduce its impact on the environment, SAITEX is shaping the future of ethical and sustainable denim manufacturing.

YOU

A huge problem in the take-make-waste economy is the packaging that products come in, as most of it ends up in landfills. At EDWIN USA, we use sustainable plastic alternatives as much as we can, from polybags made out of recycled polyester to compostable plant-based envelopes, and will continue to work toward reducing our waste, and adopting more sustainable shipping methods.

REUSE AND REPAIR

EDWIN is about keeping what already exists in use. So if you need a repair, or just want a new look, you can send your jeans back to us for one free customization. Based on your selections in our online denim lab, the artisans at Atelier & Repairs will reimagine your jeans, creating a pair that is uniquely yours.

UPCYCLING

When you’ve worn your jeans out, send them back to us and we’ll give you a $20 credit to use toward any new item on our site. Your old jeans will then be upcycled into tiles and furniture or reimagined and sold on our marketplace. If your jeans sell on our marketplace, we’ll send you an additional $20 credit.
