No slave labour, no child labour, no blood, no sweat, no tears. This slogan appears on a series of T-shirts made by the jeans brand Monkee Genes. As if that's not well said.
Founder Phil Wildbore's passion for sustainability is in his genes. That's why he couldn't help but change the world of fashion. With Monkee Genes, which has been fully GOTS certified since 2019, he wants to help consumers choose their jeans consciously.
The clothing is mainly made of organic cotton. For the chinos a blend with elastane has been used, but that is to improve the wearability and stretchability. Tell me honestly, when you bend down, you don't want to hear your butt cracking.
All clothing is produced by Monkee Genes at GOTS-certified factories. This not only means that the cotton plantations are managed ecologically, but also that the employees can go to work with peace of mind. The brand also regularly visits its factories in order to closely monitor working conditions.
It is not clear where the producers are located. COSH! would have liked to have seen more transparency here.
Have you had enough of the tragedy and pollution caused by the fashion industry? Then buy your jeans at Monkee Genes!
