G-star Raw takes a new step in sustainability with a collection painted with plant waste. It’s time to learn from our peers in fashion and catch on.
G-Star once again pushes the boundaries of innovation and sustainability by releasing a collection of garments dyed with recycled palm leaf residues and recycled beet waste in collaboration with EarthColors® by Archroma. G-Star RAW was founded in 1989 and still follows its “Just the Product” philosophy. Thanks to this dedication to quality and progress, the brand is a leader in the denim industry, produces innovative styles and questions the standards of the clothing industry. Innovation and sustainability are anchored in G-Star’s DNA. The brand strives to be a leader and to develop sustainable solutions for the future of the clothing industry.
G-Star is the first denim brand in the world that entered into a partnership with Archroma and in 2017 designed a jeans collection painted with sustainable, vegetable paint. EarthColors® by Archroma is a paint obtained from recycled plant waste: a completely natural product. This fall, G-Star is once again expanding the EarthColors® by Archroma collection with new looks, including jeans, denim jackets, shirts, T-shirts and sweatshirts for both men and women. G-Star takes a holistic approach to sustainability, combining optimized design with environmentally friendly fibers such as organic cotton, recycled cotton and TENCEL™ with EarthColors by Archroma dye and sustainable washing techniques. Denim innovation is in G-Star’s blood. That’s why the focus isn’t only on the aesthetic aspect, but also on the broader impact of the product. Since 2006, G-Star has been preparing denim for the future by investing in sustainable innovations. The goal is a transparent and circular approach to making and using denim.
