nudie jeans 2013

World Water Day has inspired us to feature water-friendly and water-related fashion discoveries and Sweden’s trendsetting jean maker, Nudie Jeans fits the bill. (photo above) Nudie makes all their jeans from water-conserving organic cotton, and advocates rarely washing your jeans to create the aged denim look to which everyone aspires.

This year H&M will donate 3.2 million garments to charity; save over 450,000,000 liters of water in their denim production; and they are the number one user of organic cotton worldwide. The Collection is priced very reasonable, too. find @ hm.com
