Where it began…
United Change Makers came from a team of ethical advocates who wanted another throw of the fashion dice. Phil (our designer) has been designing eco jeans since the 90's. Over the years he has become an active supporter of sustainable fashion and was appointment sustainable ambassador of Jacket Required in 2019
The climate for ethical fashion has changed a lot since the 90s and, now more than ever before, people are actively searching for more sustainable options. A new community of eco-fashionistas and activists who are wearing and sharing sustainable brands and clothing and we want in!
The aim of United Change Makers is to create a sustainable denim collection made from quality, organic and eco fibres, without compromising on style and affordability.
After deciding what we wanted to do United Change Makers went searching for manufacturers who supported our ideals and wanted to join us on our new adventure.
We met with a lot of people until finally we landed on an amazing team in Indonesia. There was an instant connection with this team, and (importantly!) their values matched our own! Their enthusiasm for sustainability was instantly inspiring and having visited their factory we were able to meet the wonderful people who would be making our clothes. It was encouraging to see a team so impassioned by what they do, working in safe, secure and happy environment.
Designing and producing the first collection…
Designing our first collection took time. We wanted to create a collection of timeless pieces our friends, family and potential customers were excited about. Working closely with our factory we were about to road test our favourite samples and show them off to friends and family before deciding on four key fits to suit any shopper and occasion.
The Carrie is our staple skinny.
The Maya is our contemporary straight leg.
The Skater is our statement wide leg fit.
And lastly, our very own Organic Dungaree.
With the help of our wonderful team in Indonesia we were able to bring our designs to life, working with quality GOTS Certified Organic Cotton.
