When it comes to the finishing process Kings of Indigo uses innovative and sustainable production methods to reduce the impact on the planet and people. Kings of Indigo is working closely with its suppliers to explore new washing and finishing techniques.
The main goal? To reduce water and energy consumption and pollution.
Kings of Indigo never uses sandblasting which is very harmful for the workers.
Instead, Kings of Indigo focuses on more sustainable techniques such as laser, ice blast and ozone that are used to substitute manual scraping, stone-wash and bleach finishes.
With those techniques, the washed down, used jean look can still be achieved but in a more sustainable way; laser beams burn a pattern in the denim, while ozone takes out the colour. Ice blast is another technique used to fade a denim fabric with dry ice.
Kings of Indigo constantly works on improving and reducing the impact of the finishing processes. The partners Kings of Indigo works closely with in production are regularly re-inventing the way of washing, distressing and finishing in the jeans in more sustainable ways.
Kings of Indigo does not use any of the chemicals mentioned on the REACH list in our production, which means amongst others no chlorobenzenes, azo dyes or heavy metals.
Kings of Indigo is proud to offer cleaner products with every season.
