Warp + Weft is building up its line of men’s and women’s size inclusive denim with a family of four core fabrications. This month and next, the brand is introducing three new fabrics to live alongside its original mid-weight Classic.
The new fabrics are designed to address common consumer gripes about denim, and to focus on inclusive fit.
“As a brand we ensure all our jeans go through rigorous fit testing on 00-24 models, mannequins, real people, and take custom data to drive our design process,” Warp + Weft CEO Sarah Ahmed, said.
The Dynamic, a comfort stretch cotton denim, is designed to bounce back and never bag out. The mid-weight fabric is offered in multiple versatile washes. The Oneder is an ultra-light, modal blend fabric with a soft and smooth hand feel. The fabric’s tightly woven construction helps jeans maintain a firm hold. With the Power fabric, advanced shaping technology and maximum hold are the focus. The fabric has a lush, dense touch and lightweight breathability.
All Warp + Weft denim is low-impact, according to the brand, using less than 10 gallons of water per jean. From there, 98 percent of that water is recycled back into production. Additionally, the company says each jean only takes 0.96 kWH of energy to produce, which is less than running a lightbulb for 10 hours.
The spring collection, which retails for under $100, includes A-line silhouette wide leg jeans in ecru and clover, high-rise wide leg jeans with chopped hems and high-rise denim skirts for women. The men’s line spans skinny and straight fit jeans to denim jackets and chino shorts.
