“Eco-friendly denim”

LA based Triarchy makes premium denim from natural and eco-friendly materials. It takes approximately 2,900 gallons of water to make one pair of traditional jeans; Triarchy aims to change this by asking “how much water are you wearing?” Through a variety of water saving techniques, they offer jeans that look great while greatly reducing water footprint.

Transparency

Two Leaves Earned
Rated: Good
  • Triarchy does not allow subcontracting, meaning they know exactly which factories make their clothes.
  • Triarchy’s supply chain is audited by retraction.
  • All Triarchy jeans are made in LA and Istanbul, however this information isn’t easily accessible via their website.
  • Triarchy can improve transparency by sharing more information about where their clothes are made on their website.

Fair Labor

Two Leaves Earned
Rated: Good
  • Triarchy has a publicly available code of conduct.
  • Their factories are regularly visited by Triarchy and audited by a third party: retraced.

Triarchy’s Code of Conduct mentions a living wage but only guarantees a minimum wage; Triarchy can improve Fair Labor by offering a stronger commitment to living wages.

Sustainably Made

Three Leaves Earned
Rated: Excellent
  • Triarchy uses only eco-friendly fibers including organic cotton, tencel, natural rubber, and upcycled cotton in their Atelier Denim line.
  • Triarchy partners with GreenStory to measure and share their environmental impact right on their website.
