DIVERTING DENIM FROM LANDFILL
It takes 7,600 litres of water to make one pair of jeans. That's more than enough water for one person to drink 8 cups, every day, for 10 years! Two billion pairs are made every year and 85% of these will eventually end up in landfill. Mass production, fast fashion and wasteful consumerism has had devastating effects both socially and environmentally.
- WHAT WE DO NOT CHANGE, WE CHOOSE -
In a move to affect change, Te Kohu produces clothing made from discarded and donated denim. We deconstruct and rework the fabric into quality staple garments to encourage originality, eco-wardrobe choices and conscious consumerism.
