Jeans production and its downsides
170 years ago the city of Nîmes supplied the first denim to the USA – for the famous Levi Strauss jeans. The target group at that time were the gold prospectors in California. That is why the fabric is still called denim today – “from Nîmes”. Today it is impossible to imagine our wardrobes without jeans. Unfortunately, jeans production is anything but harmless. For the environment and for us. The manufacture of a single pair of pants consumes up to 8,000 liters of water.Continue reading

Fashion has somehow always interested Dietrich Weigel. That’s why he did an apprenticeship as a tailor in haute couture and has worked his way through various stations in the fashion business. Today, he produces eco-fair denim styles from slim to flared and cropped to high waist for his label Goodsociety. Originally founded in the USA in 2007, Dietrich Weigel took over the label five years later and expanded it according to his own ideas. For Dietrich Weigl, sustainability does not stop at organic; it only begins there. Fair working conditions, no use of harmful chemicals and CO2-neutral work are self-evident with his eco-brand.
Spinning, weaving, dyeing and finishing yarns – Goodsociety has its production in Italy. Of course Dietrich Weigel knows all his suppliers personally. After all, this is all about transparency. This is why his cotton-growing partner farms in India, Pakistan and Turkey are inspected by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). His trousers are Peta Approved Vegan, the typical trouser back patch is not made of leather but of Alcantara. Buttons and rivets are 100 percent, the copper parts are 85 percent recycled metal.
Good news: Our favorite piece of clothing is also available in good!
That sustainable lifestyle and social responsibility in connection with fashion work well was recognized early on at Goodsociety. This is why the eco-denim label donates around 25 percent of its profits to selected projects worldwide that protect nature and promote social development and individual freedom.
