A Bright Idea – Monkee Genes

Exhibit number one that organic fashion doesn’t have to be scruffy or overpriced: Monkee Genes. It’s a jeans brand from Great Britain with the slogan No child labour. No slave labour. No blood. No sweat. No tears. Sounds quite good, right? According to their site it’s the first and only jeans label that has both acreditations from The Soil Association and the Global Organic Textile Standards (if you want to know what these eco-seals mean, you can go here). They also produce big parts of their collection in England.

I love Monkee Genes!

Aside from the good people stuff, the jeans also look really good and fashionable. They are made of organic fabrics only, which won’t lose their shape as quickly as other jeans. I’m intrigued to buy one next time I need jeans, my favourite is this one. What do you think?

    Love the slogan! All clothes should be free from child labour and slave labour.
