Zero Waste Patchwork Dungarees
zero-waste colour-block handmade dungarees with pockets
Our zero-waste organic patchwork dungarees are super comfy and stand out with the patchwork technique. We make them from 98% organic cotton and we incorporate small denim remnants left over from other projects by using the Korean patchwork technique called pojagi. This avoids the production of waste. I reverse the denim in places to add an interesting contrast in colour.

98% organic cotton and 2% lycra.
We make our denim overalls from organic cotton. Organic cotton is more sustainable that regular cotton because the process is based on long-term thinking. Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic insecticides, fungicides, herbicides or fertilisers. Farmers maintain healthy soil through crop rotation, preventing the loss of nutrients into water bodies and so avoiding 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!
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper and ship using reusable and compostable mailbags.
A great resource on sustainable fashion is the Fashion Revolution, including information on what to consider when choosing where and what to buy.
As a brand that value sustainability, we also strive to post informative content on sustainable matters on our Instagram account @fordandguy
