Warp and Weft is an inclusive denim label that offers the modern fashion consumer "the most sustainable pair of jeans in the world."

The denim pant is a fashion staple. We wear jeans when we want to go casual. We also slip into a pair on frisky nights out on town. Paired with a white shirt and sneakers or a dressy top with stilettos, jeans are the fashion go-to regardless of age, size, gender and season. It is the fashion piece what you can rely on through the grim and the glam. Its versatility is right up there with (if not way past) iconic the little black dress.

And while jeans are beloved, they also happen to leave the most significant toll on the environment. In producing one pair of jeans, around 2,000 gallons of water are consumed. To achieve that perfect wash, at least 50 tons of synthetic indigo dye goes into our oceans, rivers, lakes and other bodies of water. Given this large-scale environmental impact from denim production, it will take major sustained efforts to reverse the detrimental effects of jean manufacturing. And it an era where application of sustainable principles bears the same weight as the “Made In Italy” or “Made In France” label from decades ago, fashion consumers are now more likely to respond to labels with a clear cut proposition for addressing this concern.

Warp and Weft is involved in every aspect of jean production from spinning of fibers to finishing of each denim pant. This allows them to offer top quality, sustainable products are affordable prices.

Denim label Warp and Weft is the new kid on the sustainable fashion block. Only a year since its launch, the company has already shown the most impressive methods and practices for “making the world’s best sustainable denim.” Its CEO and founder, Sarah Ahmed, is taking her company’s pledge to heart. Experience and expertise in denim production and design has helped Ahmed to create a denim label that is perhaps one of the best models for sustainable fashion.

Warp and Weft CEO and founder Sarah Ahmed applied her experience and expertise in premium denim to develop a brand that would fully embrace principles of sustainability.

That Ahmed’s family has been in the milling industry for almost three decades contributes to Warp and Weft’s ability to produce eco-friendly denims. The label prides itself for minimizing the use of water in the production of denims to less than 10 gallons. Because of their in-house water treatment plant, they are also able to recycle, reuse and return a substantial amount of clean water to the environment. Jeans by Warp and Weft are also created using liquid indigo from Dystar, one of the most eco friendly dyes in the world. The company is one of the very few to use this innovative dye from Germany. An in-house power plant and use of solar energy also help in improving the carbon footprint that denim production leaves on the planet. A pair of jeans produced by Warp and Weft uses about 0.96KwH which is about the same amount of energy it takes to light a bulb.
