Social justice and sustainable denim from Outland

Founder James Bartle created the “Denim Project”, which would enable girls who had been rescued from trafficking and demonstrated an interest in sewing, to put their new skills to use. The brand has created a training and production facility in Cambodia, where all staff are paid fair living wages and create jeans using a mix of sustainable materials, including organics and upcycled fabrics.

Editors note: Could these be unisex? They go as small as 24″ waist, would the shape work differently for women? I would love to know the answer if anyone knows! Roxy .
