If you’re on the hunt for sustainable denim you’re in luck, as Arket has dropped their Patchwork Denim capsule collection today.

The 8-piece collection has been made using post-consumer denim collected from the brand’s recycling program with I:Collect. Every old denim garment used has been washed, sorted, cut up into patches and used to form large sheets of irregular fabric shapes.

The fabrics have then been used to create one-of-a-kind patchwork bucket hats, skirts, jackets, jeans and tote bags for women and children, which form Arket’s latest sustainable collection.

It’s important to note that denim is one of the fashion industry’s most damaging fabrics due to the processes involved in manufacturing it.

It uses 2,630 litres of water in the manufacturing process per pair, and with 2 billion pairs now made every single year, it racks up.

2 million tonnes of chemicals and 1.4 million tonnes of raw cotton are also used to produce denim every year, making it one of the worst offender’s for pollution and consumption.

Fortunately brands are catching on. Arket is following in the footsteps of Scandi brand GANNI, which teamed up with Levi’s last month to produce a sustainable vintage-look denim collection.

Meanwhile there are plenty of stylish sustainable denim brands you can shop from here.
