TRANSFORMING A MAKE-WASTE INDUSTRY INTO A RESTORATIVE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Launched in Tokyo in 1961, the EDWIN brand set the standard for Japanese denim production. In 2019, EDWIN USA launched with a new purpose: To radically transform the denim 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 forward-thinking recycling and upcycling programs. Our overall aim at EDWIN USA is to improve our environmental, social and economic impact, and lead the way in building a more sustainable and circular fashion industry.

Nearly half of the cotton we use is certified organic. By 2022, all of the cotton we use will be organic.
