It can be rather frustrating, especially considering I live in my jeans. Here’s some good news for people out there who’d like a pair of jeans that really fit, and are environmentally sound. UJeans let you design your own pair of jeans, based on your own measurements, and guarantee that they’ll fit, or you can have your money back.

And are these jeans environmentally friendly? Well, they’re made from cotton from the Pakistan Sustainable Cotton Initiative, the colouring process is free of harsh chemicals such as chlorine bleach, formaldehyde and azo, and the workers employed at UJeans’ denim manufacturing facilities are being treated right and paid fairly.

UJeans cost US $140 a pop. Shipping is $10.00 within Canada, $15.00 for the US and $27.00 internationally.

All that remains to be said is, they’re not Eugene’s, they’re mine!

Is one new brand call “Go Indigo Jeans” is using in this product natural indigo. This helps eco friendly agriculturist. The organic cotton used encourages the farmers and supports them to continue eco friendly agricultural practice. We dye in ancient eco friendly way . The Indigo vats have the same water from last 14 years. There is no other procedure to dye with natural indigo in eco friendly way today, and with minimum use of water, by this way we preserve the millennial tradition of indigo fermentation dyeing. The handloom weaving is produced by craftsmen, and small villagers by giving them this work, “Go Indigo Jeans” contribute to the decrease, refrain of immigration to big cities and also preserve the millennial tradition of handloom.

They’re expensive, but I bet they’re worth it. Sounds perfect. Thanks for the information.
