Taylor Stitch teamed up with denim producer, Isko, to introduce the brand’s first 100 percent organic cotton jean.
Available in two men’s fits, the Organic ’68 Selvage is a custom-made 13 oz. fabrication by Isko made using only organic cotton. Each jean features a custom double green ticker selvage ID and boasts 5 oz. organic cotton pocketing printed with the brand’s signature San Francisco map print.
The limited collection includes a slim fit and Taylor Stitch’s signature Democratic, a straight cut with a roomier fit in the seat, thigh and knee. Jeans retail for $148.
“This project presented some major logistical hurdles for us, but we love a challenge, and the final product is completely worth it,” the brand writes on its website, adding that the jeans demonstrate all the benefits of traditional denim like tensile strength and authentic character.
Taylor Stitch joins a growing number of denim brands using 100 percent organic cotton for jeans, including Patagonia, Levi’s, G-Star Raw and Eileen Fisher. Cone Denim also recently introduced 100 percent organic cotton fabrications in its Sustainblue product range, which prioritizes fibers and yarns that have a reduce, reuse or recycle component.
Making products with staying power is part of the Taylor Stitch’s DNA. The brand provides free repairs and offers a buyback program to repair, renew and recycle old apparel. And through its workshop platform, the brand crowdsources projects to ensure everything made is wanted.
Taylor Stitch’s latest project, the Long Haul jacket made with the same 100 percent organic cotton denim, has already exceeded its funding goal three times over. The jacket is estimated to be shipped beginning in July.
