Linda Loudermilk Adds Organic Denim Line Next Spring

SSF has been a big fan of Linda Loudermilk for a long time; from her innovative use of sustainable fabrics, to her beautiful clothing that’s caught the eye of Hollywood’s A-list, it doesn’t get much better than her beautiful work when it comes to sustainable couture (she was even nominated for an OSSA Award this year). So we’re excited to hear that she’ll be adding denim to her repertoire for her Spring 2007 Collection. Via fiftyRX3:

Loudermilk uses a corn-based fiber called Ingeo from Italy and sasawashi, a Japanese leaf that has antibacterial properties, in addition to bamboo and organic cotton blended with 1 percent spandex. Treatments, too, were developed to be environmentally sustainable. The washhouse recycles its water; sandblasting is done by hand, and washing machines use ozone to oxidize jeans for a sun-baked look.

Sounds pretty good; we’ll look forward to seeing them go from the runway to the streets next year. [Linda Loudermilk] via [fiftyRX3]

  1. Del Forte Denim There are two great companies out there with denim lines, loomstate and del forte. I haven’t seen the loomstate, but i happened to see del forte in a store and they were really great quality. I just wish i had the money to afford them!!

  2. Del Forte jeans in Canada I know what you mean about price. But I have to say that
    for the sake of a cleaner planet and the assurance that no
    children or exploited employees made the jeans, it’s worth it.
    Plus Del Forte really is a superior jean to 99% of what’s out there
    from a style, fit and durability vantage point. All the eco and labour sensibilities are just an added bonus!
    I live in Canada and am very excited about their arrival here.
    I know Ejust in Quebec will be stocking them in their store as well
    as distributing the line across Canada.

  3. Does Sustainable materials have a logo? Hello,

    I am doing some research on sustainable materials. I can’t seem to find a logo or symbol that is used to identify these fabrics as being sustainable. Is there such a thing?

    Best,

    Laura
