ABOUT

E.L.V. DENIM takes unwanted jeans destined for landfill and turns them into modern sophisticated pieces. Adhering to an ethos of zero waste, the material used has zero impact on the environment.

Working with local ateliers in East London, Anna Foster ensures that each jean has the lowest carbon footprint possible whilst supporting local businesses and communities. At E.L.V. DENIM environmental and social sustainability are at the heart of the business, and we believe that being entirely transparent with our supply chain allows a consumer to find a consciously sourced jean which is as unique as the person who wears them.
