If spring fashion fever finds you hunting high and low for a reliable and sexy pair of eco-chic jeans, look no further, as Nau has just released their super hot ‘his and hers’ 2008 jeans collection. Made of 100% organic cotton, these flattering and incredibly well made denim numbers will eliminate the nagging concern about toxic chemicals in both your weekend threads and local watershed. These are tailored jeans meant to last both in terms of sustainable style and their environmental ripple effect. Besides, who can resist a totally rockin’ garment name like ‘loose but not slutty’?
Nau Women’s Lean Jean – $138
We love that Nau is always trying to make things better in terms of responsible green fashion and environmental awareness, so we were totally supportive when they told us about these hot new jeans on the horizon. Made from 100% organic cotton denim and lightly rinsed fabric, these are jeans that you can feel really good about while looking pretty darn good, too.
The ‘Lean Jean’ provides a slimmer fit with dark-forged, nickel-free hardware at stress points for material fatigue. A tapered leg and flat front style also makes it a winner for urban attire. The alternative is Nau’s provocatively named ‘Loose But Not Slutty Jean’ made from 98% organic cotton denim and 2% spandex for that extra give. Shades of indigo come in a lighter 7pm or the darker 10pm hue. Wide belt loops with straight leg offer a clean and more relaxed look.
Nau has a stringent ‘Code of Conduct’ and a partnership with the third-party monitoring organization Verité in order to ensure the welfare of workers in their partner factories. 5% of the purchase price goes to one of their non-profit partners, which you get to choose. Nau, honestly, it really doesn’t get any better than this.
