Nudie Jeans guarantees that the farmers receive a minimum price for selling their crops. And by selling the cotton to Fairtrade, the farmers receive a Fairtrade Premium, to invest in their communities, building schools, roads and health care facilities.
Around 70% of the clothes are made in Europe. The rest of the clothes are made under a safe, fair and working environment for all the people. As you maybe know in some countries there’s a different between minimum wages and the actual cost of living. Nudies wants a fair price for each worker.
I wanted to know from Nudie Jeans “How much the farmers, sewers, … get per Day of working? And how many days and hours they work in a week? So I hope I will hear from them soon…

Nudie Jeans Eco-cycle-Philosophie
Nudie Jeans promise of free repairs. That means that jeans can be repaired, resold or donated. There is nearly a Nudie Jeans Repair Shop in every big city, even in Zurich is one. I think the idea of repairing or resolding a great idea. We are such a consuming society, why not to change a little with buying less or directed.
“We don’t believe THROWAWAY and JEANS are words that belongs together. Just the opposite, Jeans are a piece of clothing that ages and grows more beautiful with the wearer, and are worth wearing out and mending” Nudie Jeans
