The latest items also use 100% transitional cotton, which is cotton created by small shareholder farmers in India as they transition their fields to a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems, and people by relying on ecological processes, biodiversity and farming cycles adapted to local conditions. The brand supports these farmers’ by taking on parts of the farmers’ financial risk during this transition period by purchasing their transitional cotton crop.
However it doesn’t stop there – Levi’s® WellThread® jeans are then dyed with plant-based, natural dyes which are 100% plant-based indigo and 100% bio-based black pigment. These natural dyes create the capsule’s dark and inky look on classic silhouettes.
