Spinning, dyeing, weaving

April 17, 2023


The choice of fabric producer/mill is important as their work with sustainability is our guarantee for the social and environmental standard in the dying and spinning process as well as the work in the cotton fields. We always request organic cotton with certificate to secure the validity.


When it comes to denim, the fabric is yarn dyed, which means that the yarns are dyed at the fabric mill prior to being woven. Most other unicolor fabrics are dyed after weaving.


To obtain the desired looks and worn-effects, different processes can be applied ranging from regular washes to E-flow and laser treatments. At LAURIE we always aim to either use E-flow or laser – find out why in the following posts.


The color applied to a fabric is a mix of chemicals. If a brand works with a fabric supplier that is not OEKOTEX® Standard 100 certified, there is no guarantee that the fabric is tested free from harmful chemicals. These chemicals ultimately end up on our bodies, which has proven to trigger allergies and cause undesirable skin conditions.


In other words, look for the OEKOTEX® Standard 100 label in the products you buy – you will find it in our DE599/DE600 denim trousers making them safe to wear.
