THE COMPONENTS

The use of masterfully crafted fabrics from the worlds best denim mills from Italy, Turkey, Japan and the United States afford our artisans an unrivalled design canvas to work with. Working closely with our Italian & Japanese denim fabric suppliers we custom build small batches of unique denim fabrics. Sourced from sustainable BCI cotton and regenerated waste materials a special effort is made to reduce our overall impact on our environment and the people that work with our product. Our jeans are an experience of a perfectly integrated product with the best materials.

 

 

 


 

THE TEST

A Jude Neale product meets the highest standards of performance and comfort. Every style is put through a rigorous battery of testing & inspection that is carried out by SGS labs, a globally accredited testing laboratory. A Jude Denim product must meet the minimum testing standards before it leaves the factory floor.  Our testing protocol is one of the most intense testing protocols developed for denim and textiles. Focused on performance and comfort a Jude Denim jean sets the standard for denim apparel.

 


 

THE PROCESS

Building small batches of exceptionally well built jeans is what we do. Produced by a small team of artists working with Jude in our Los Angeles denim lab, every style is painstakingly designed, prototyped, washed and aged literally by hand. Every spot, fade and color conceived out of an inspired emotion.

 

 

 


 

THE GREEN CYCLONE

We want Jude Denim to be a brand that reflects the change in how jeans are made, to design and manufacture jeans as if the people that make it and the place where we make it matters. Our team of artisans come to work each day knowing only how to make the best jeans and in doing so we aspire to do no harm but benefit all. 27 years of experience in the field has given us the edge when it comes to deploying cutting-edge eco-sustainable techniques in our processing plants. Recycling 80% of the water we use, incorporating ozone waterless bleach processing and recapturing oxidizing agents used in the process are some of our intensive efforts to craft jeans with the smallest environmental footprint.
