It takes approximately 2,900 gallons of water to make one pair of traditional cotton jeans. That number is equivalent to 10,977 1L water bottles. Triarchy set out to change this by reducing unnecessary water consumption in denim production. To date, they have saved over 1,000,000 gallons of water.
Triarchy / Atelier Denim makes use of what they have by repurposing what already exists into new pieces of sustainable luxury. They start by sourcing from the finest selection of vintage denim. Then, they deconstruct, reimagine, and reconstruct – adding high-end materials and trims to make one-of-a-kind denim pieces.
Triarchy’s mission is a simple one:
To conserve our planet’s most important resource by reducing the massive water consumption of our planet’s most beloved piece of clothing, jeans.
- sustainable fabrics using recycled fibres and Tencel
- onsite water recycling facility, reusing 98% of that water
- recycled sheet metal buttons
- and recycled polyester labels
