“Every time I get a pair of brand new jeans, something happens. Like a dog jumps on me at a dinner party and bingo, two weeks in, I’ve more or less failed.
I say failed because part of the appeal of raw denim is its newness, its pristine quality. There’s no other option that looks as gorgeously textured. It’s why the stuff has caught on in style-worlds that favor fresh, crisp looks (hip-hop). In the same way that sneakers are kept as pristine as possible, some folks treat their jeans that way. Also, any attempts to wear jeans as remotely formal are greatly helped by a flawless pair.
At the same time, I hear time and time again that raw denim is supposed to tell a story through its wear. Life is organic and imperfect and these jeans tell the world this in the most explicit way. Is this an either/or proposition? Is there a turning point? A gradual descent? Is it essentially a question of what style-world you fall into–and what look your lifestyle realistically allows for?
Do I wear the jeans or do the jeans wear me?
There’s also the question of the idealized fade–perfect imperfection–versus the ugly realities of what life brings to pants. I read a lot about wallet fades and whiskering. No one seems nearly as into coffee spills or early discoloration.
It’s almost like denim comes into this world as extremely impressionable. If it goes through the right experiences, it ends up wise and battle-tested. If not, it has scars and we’re inclined to say it’s ”fragile” at the start. It’s even more like us than we think!”
“Everyone has had that moment – when your absolute favorite, irreplaceable pair of jeans, whether a cheap pair that fits amazingly or the designer denim you splurged on, become “broken in” beyond wearability. What to do when good jeans go bad? Send them to Denim Therapy!”

Denim Therapy has been donating unclaimed jeans to a good cause, and now we want you to see the results. Launched in November, 2011, the handbag project is a partnership between HaitiCorps International and FAVILEK (Fanm Viktim Leve Kanpe/Women Victims Get Up Stand Up), an organization dedicated to helping women who have been victims of gender-based violence.
Through the Handbag Project, HCI and FAVILEK will train women in sewing and other techniques and offer stable employment with a fair wage. A profit-sharing agreement between HCI and FAVILEK will ensure that the project remains responsive to the needs of Haitians themselves and will allow FAVILEK to expand its much-needed programs to more vulnerable women. See some of our jeans transformed into handbags below.
