Additional information

In September 2018, 1083 has created the jeans school in Romans to redevelop the know-how of making jeans. This ambitious and unique program in France is the culmination of teamwork with Pôle emploi, Opcalia, Créatech, and all of you, who create our jobs by ordering 1083 jeans. France is the largest producer of linen in the world but the last French linen spinning mill closed in 2005. As spinning is the only missing link to relocate 100% of the linen industry, 1083 initiated in 2018 the “Linpossible” project for collectively create the conditions for the return of a flax mill in France ...

Circularity

They recently launched the Infini jeans: the first recycled, returnable and infinitely recyclable jeans! Thanks to the deposit, they make sure to recover your jeans at the end of their life, to transform them back into new jeans. This is the ideal circular economy: design and manufacture a product so that at the end of its life, it is the raw material for the same new product!

Recyclability

100% recyclable or upcyclable.

- Packaging / Packing

Additional information

In the jeans industry we often talk about water consumption, but this subject is more complex than it seems. Water is part of a cycle and therefore never disappears. But if we overconsume it in a region where it is lacking, and / or if we pollute it, the consequences can be dramatic. For these reasons: • their organic cotton comes mainly from Tanzania, Benin or Mali, where natural irrigation limits the need for artificial irrigation, • all their jeans are made from organic cotton so as not to pollute the water with pesticides , • all their jeans are dyed in dyers equipped with wastewater treatment plants using European standards, • all their jeans are washed without a single drop of water, by laser.
