Sling & Stones are denim lovers in the purest sense. This super-luxe premium label offers luxurious, great fitting, eco-concious jeans — their materials are 100% organic and fairly traded.
The ensemble collective behind Sling & Stones consists of engineers and artists from Seattle who left behind high-paying careers to pursue global change. The denim is made of the highest quality organic Japanese Supima cotton that is virtually pesticide-free. This is unlike the average cotton jeans, which contain 27% harmful chemicals. “We’re making a super-clean jean with true vintage washes that will last a lifetime.”
The reason for the super-luxe price tag is the detailed process that goes into their jeans. First, the organic Supima fiber is spun and loomed by a small family-run Japanese mill. The twill for the pocket bag lining is made of organic Fair Trade cotton, grown on the farms of Peru. The twill and denim are fashioned with genuine 24k gold plated hardware and Zari thread, handcrafted by skilled artisans in India. Then the jeans are finally assembled in Sling & Stones’ own factory, closely supervised with extra care for the products and the employees. Each jean is finished and inspected personally by Sling & Stones before shipping out to boutiques.
So much love and so much care for our environment and people! This is a brand we should all check out and support. And they are simply kick-ass jeans — simple, great fitting and made by loving hands with the highest quality fabric, what more can you ask for? Maybe a discount? The ultra-premium jeans will set you back $260-$350, but it’s an honorable price to pay that goes deeper than your pocket: a percentage of Sling & Stones??™ profits will be used to immunize villagers in Peru, fight teen suicide in Japan, and build an orphanage and youth rehabilitation center in India. Voila! You are instantly a humanitarian!
For a lower, more wallet-friendly brand, check out their sister-label, Good Society, for equally environmentally conscious jeans for equally financially conscious people, who still want to do good.
