Recycled denim fabric: Royo, Spain
Royo is a very impressive company with social and environmental goals embedded in the company culture. Royo carry out the dying and weaving of the denim fabric and source the yarn from Recover who they have collaborated with on a denim upcycling programme.
Certifications: Recycled Standard, Certificate (GRS) by ICEA, Textile Exchange Member, Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) Member, Signatory of the UN Global Compact
Stitching and washing: Yousstex, Tunisia
Yousstex was audited by the Fair Wear Foundation in 2015 who noted that the management was attentive to working conditions.
Factory visits are Mud Jeans main tool for ensuring working conditions at Yousstex are good. Mud’s head of product Dion Vijgeboom visits the factory every few months and has built a good relationship with the factory owner, Mr. Habib . Any issues that arise can be discussed in an open and productive manner. Dion reports that workers work eight hours a day, five and a half days a week. Medical care and transportation are provided free of charge. The factory environment is safe and workers enjoy air conditioning in summer and heating in winter. Workers report they are paid fairly and on time but common to many garment factory workers would like to receive a higher salary.
Environmental impact and materials
The use of recycled denim reduces the amount of virgin cotton that needs to be grown. Cotton is a resource intensive crop and some report that it can take 20,000 liters of water to produce 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of cotton.
The virgin cotton used in these jeans is organic. This protects the environment and also farmers who may suffer ill health when coming into contact with the intensive fertilisers and pesticides used in conventional cotton production.
Mud jeans feature a unique printed pocket patch which avoids the need for a leather or faux leather patch.
Brothers We Stand has received evidence that the major suppliers involved in the production of these jeans all have wastewater treatment plans in place.
Areas for development
We would like to see Mud continue to support and encourage the formation of an active workers committee at Yousstex, the factory where their jeans are stitched.
