Organic cotton jeans, to wear, so that even on the outside it is clear that we have a green soul and "irrepressible" green thoughts. They are produced by a company founded in 2012 in the province of Bergamo: Par.co Fashion with their brand Par.co Denim. With a strong tradition rooted in the territory of origin, this reality looks ahead and treasures its historical heritage by offering clothing sustainable denime, jeans in organic cotton designed and developed by Par.co itself and produced in the same province of Bergamo to produce an artisan quality garment, for those who want to wear a green garment made in Italy, the possibility of buying it at an affordable price.
Finally, sustainable fashion is not elite and you can already understand it by seeing that there is jeans, the protagonist, the emblem of a kind of clothing that wants to be easy and suitable for everyone. If in organic cotton, suitable for all those looking for an aesthetic style but also a flawless lifestyle.
Par.co Denim produces its garments with great attention to reducing the impact on the environment, both in the choice of suppliers and clothing manufacturers, and respecting the quality of life and health of people wearing her jeans.
Organic cotton jeans: the materials used
The cotton from organic farming is then woven from Italian companies certified GOTS, OEKO-TEX, SA8100 in all spinning, warping, weaving, dyeing and finishing processes, or that have signed Greenpeace's commitment to Fashion Detox campaign.
What characteristics do the organic cotton jeans and why are they really low environmental impact? The material used - organic cotton - it is free from GMOs and pesticides and this is because it is distinguished from other types of cotton already when it is sown and cultivated. In fact, farmers can store and reuse seeds, GMO free, for subsequent sowing, feeding the soils not for intensive growth e without using pesticides.
All these precautions make the organic cotton jeans free of toxic substances and hazardous residues, healthier, therefore, for the wearer but also for all those who handle them in the various steps of the supply chain. Short supply chain but that some passage inevitably foresees.
In addition to organic cotton fabrics, Par.co Denim has also started using natural raw materials such as hemp and linen which require less water during cultivation and less energy for the transformation into fiber to be woven as well as recycled denim yarns for the development of a circular economy system.
Once the organic cotton with minimal environmental impact and the other fibers have been obtained from the fields, we move on to spinning, weaving, warping and dyeing. These processes are carried out on looms of historic Lombard companies chosen because they are certified and also committed with their own patents to significantly reduce water consumption by 12 times and with a energy consumption savings of 90%. Selvedge fabrics, on the other hand, are woven on historic shuttle looms in Japan, a country with high quality and environmental standards.
Organic cotton jeans: the packaging
The time has come to pack jeans, give them the shape that makes a green product fashionable. This task is entrusted to a group of Bergamo artisans expert in making denim garments for three generations. Another delicate step is the one that includes washing and the "final" treatment often carried out creating damage to the environment.
This is not the case for theseorganic cotton jeans that use eco-sustainable washes with a strong reduction of water as well as using ice for dry cleaning and vegetable resins and with a method for creating vintage effects called Eco-aging, it is natural and 100% biodegradable, replaces with an eco-sustainable plant compound, without sacrificing aesthetics, the now banned "silica sandblasting" because it is dangerous for the environment and health, although unfortunately still in some cases used in countries with few controls.
Even in the attention to detail Par.co Denim stands out, starting from buttons and rivets, nickel-free and produced in the sotrico district of Bergamo's button factories.
Organic cotton jeans: environmental impact
It can be automatic to think that if we talk about organic cotton, it has a low environmental impact. In support of this natural association of ideas, there are numbers that reveal how different the use of one or the other cotton is when "the other" is the conventional one.
When we use or wear organic cotton jeans we choose to truly respect the environment: we reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 46%, emissions responsible for acidification by 70%, eutrophication by 26% and 91% of water consumption destined mainly for irrigation. Energy consumption also fell by 62%.
