Transparency

At Keeper Denim we have consciously chosen the suppliers we work with, ensuring we minimise our impact on the environment and the people involved in making our jeans. By sharing our supply chain with you, we hope you can be confident in knowing who made your jeans and where they were made.

DENIM

Supplier: ISKO
Origin: Turkey

We have chosen to source our denim from ISKO, one of the world’s largest denim producers and where sustainability is at the centre of everything that they do. The denim is from their Earth Fit collection and manufactured at their mill in Turkey. It is Standard 100 OEKO-TEX® certified, which confirms no toxic substances are contained within the material. The denim is comprised of organic cotton certified by Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and recycled polyester made from post-consumer plastic bottles. ISKO is also the only denim mill in the world to have been awarded with two prestigious certifications; the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and the EU Ecolabel, for their Earth Fit collection.

ORGANIC COTTON

Organic cotton is grown without the use of toxic synthetic chemicals and uses 88% less water than conventional cotton. In addition, it also reduces the exposure of farmers and their families to harsh substances both on the farm and through their food and water supplies. When we wear clothing that contains chemicals, they can be absorbed through our skin, the largest organ of the human body. The impacts of these chemicals on human health are largely untested. By choosing organic cotton, we help to reduce this exposure, having a positive impact on our health.

MANUFACTURING

Location: Melbourne, Australia

Our jeans are manufactured in a factory which is certified by Ethical Clothing Australia. This ensures local garment workers are paid fairly, receive all their legal entitlements and have safe working conditions. Once the jeans are made, our local denim artisans use a manual brushing technique to lightly fade each pair of our jeans, giving them a ‘worn’ look, rather than the conventional method of harsh chemicals such as bleach.
