Unlike industry-standard petroleum-based dyes, these shorts are dyed with organic indigo leaves.
Indigo leaf dye has been safely used for thousands of years (dating back to 2000-3000 B.C.) for its ability to make strong and beautiful blues. In the 1800s, natural indigo was almost completely replaced by synthetic indigo, which is derived from the known toxin aniline - a chemical that has been used to make rocket fuel.
Ethically made all the way through.
From start to finish, every company involved in Sustain's supply chain provides fair wages and safe working conditions.
