Do you know who made your jeans or where they came from?
Thanks to Fibershed’s “Grow Your Jeans” campaign, I do know who made my jeans and where they came from…
The inspiring Sally Fox grew the organic cotton in the Capay Valley,
The fearless Rebecca Burgess grew and composted the indigo at different farms around the Bay Area,
The talented Leslie Terzian wove the yarn into fabric at her studio on the Shipyard at Hunters Point, San Francisco,
And the lovable and meticulous Daniel DiSanto measured twice, designed and sewed a pair just for me at his studio in Alameda.
While this is sadly not me… this is how happy I look when I put on my new sustainable/local/custom made jeans… now I just need some tops to go with them…
