Our hand dyed pink hemp barrel jeans are a bold addition and playful staple in your wardrobe. Designed with self-expression and comfort in mind, these jeans are a team player in any capsule wardrobe, making each outfit a statement. We make each pair from an organic cotton and hemp twill that we hand dye to order so that no fabric is wasted.
The jeans are designed with a barrel shape to the leg, in-seam pockets and a metal zipper fly at the front. There are also patchwork details at the lower leg.
We hand make each pair of jeans in our workshop in Nottingham, England. Each item is made-to-order, minimising fabric wastage. The tiny scraps of fabric that are left over are recycled within the UK.

Certified organic cotton and hemp twill.
Organic cotton is more sustainable than regular cotton because the process is based on long-term thinking. Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic insecticides, fungicides or fertilisers. Healthy soil is instead maintained through crop rotation. This prevents the loss of nutrients into water bodies and avoids both water pollution and the need for artificial fertilisers. Organic cotton farming also uses significantly less water than ordinary cotton, whereby farmers rely mainly on rainwater. Find out more about organic farming at the Textile Exchange!
Hemp is a plant fiber from the stems of the Cannabis plant and has one of the lowest impacts on the environment. This is because the hemp crop requires little water to grow and improves soil health in a similar way as organic cotton, above. Hemp is also biodegradable and one of the stronger textile fabrics. Moreover, hemp fabric is insulating, anti-bacterial and UV-resistant.
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper.
