"Definitely on my list also had a local artist on the podcast just a couple of weeks ago. Taylor taylor yeah. Did you end up making her show. I couldn't go. But oh my god. We had so much fun. She actually came over to the shop maybe a month or two ago and we made a jacket together for It was so fun to just hang. She's circle just hung out and like made a very beautiful like fashion garment for her. Oh that's great well. I heard a super successful opening in the rallies. Downtown city whatever organization is pretty supportive of arts and everything which is great. Oh yeah so go rally. What is raleigh denim workshop. Let's let's start there. I'm guessing you make denim. we do. Yeah so in short we make pants I think the reality is like it started as more just like a Directional for creativity like it was a a medium creativity like we were super into all kinds of things like i used to cook at some pretty awesome restaurants that cook that nobu in new york like way back in the day. Wow like I was in a furniture making sorrows into she made dresses and we had a screen printing studio in our house. And i don't know just like all these different things. That kind of melded into like learning about the history of denham. Production in north carolina connecting dots. Between wine i used to make wine also between winemaking and food and fashion and craft and quality and we realized that there was this incredible history addendum production in north carolina and that the market was really stale at the time and i mean not not that it's living anyways just thought like hey let's make a thing that's of us. The way that winemakers do like they grow the grapes. It comes from their heads from their hearts from their hands. It's it's honest it's pure. It's true to who they are And we we kinda wanted to jump into that like almost almost as an art project almost like not as we want to start a business or you want to be a denim brand more just like how do we like squeeze creativity out into the world and like this was a medium that seemed like a an opportunity for us that the oldest animal in the country was in north carolina. There's all the history and heritage to build from. But we could do it. In our way in a new way was modern fits in modern detailing and pay respect to the past. But have some fun with it too when you're growing up in. Raleigh is the the heritage craftsmanship crafts person ship of denham. Is that part of just being there. Is that all around like these mills. No not at all. i mean. There's like the ghosts of all the mills. not like. it's it's it's more rooted in a race to the bottom of like faster blah blah blah. And that's why the rank closed and it kinda left a pretty big I don't know just like gap and whole of of business in life and pride and in quality like it's all like you see it in small towns like it's gone right. I think those are the things that we were most interested in. So he's another that..

A History of Blue Jeans

"There's a good chance that most of you listening to this right now regardless of where you live on earth own a pair of blue jeans. That's because bluejeans have become one of the most ubiquitous types of clothing in the world. The story of blue jeans doesn't actually start in the united states. It starts with. The cloth used to make jeans denim in the fifteenth century. A heavy cloth that came from genoa. Italy was known as jean cloth. Gene cloth was cotton. Heavy fabric sometimes woven with wool. In addition as well it was developed for sailors to wear wet or dry and it was also used for sales. The where gene comes from the french word for genoa. Jen's the genoese would import a blue dye in the form of indigo from india and used it to die their cloth. The french called it blue jeans. So yeah bluejeans actually refers to a particular cloth even before it was ever used as a name for the pants on a related note. The genoese may have gotten the idea for gene cloth from india. The indians had a heavy cloth known as delivery which was a hindi word. Dungarees was traded with europe britain and was used for heavy pants today. Dungarees used to describe an overall made of blue denim denim was developed in the city of france. The development was nothing more than an attempt to copy. The popular content will cloth that was created in genoa. Denham gets its name from deneen which just means from name in french. Gene and denham cloth was a popular cheap cloth for working people in europe and there are seventeenth eighteenth century paintings of people wearing what looks like bluejeans in reality. They were wearing pants of a similar color and a similar cloth. Bluejeans as we know them today aren't just blue pants made out of denim. However there's something more specific this is where we introduce the pivotal person in the story of bluejeans levi. Strauss strauss was born in germany in eighteen twenty nine and migrated to the united states in eighteen forty seven at the age of eighteen.

"In ways. We don't you know Even think about it. It's not just the low wages. It's the it's the working conditions in the The whole health affects of region. Now there are all the kind of the fashion supply. Chain is littered with dead rivers That are kind of so polluted. They can't support any form of life. And and what's crazy is like you know the the Mike guide not on that day but a different day Looking at a different black river would told me how just his his own grandparents is younger than me that his grandparents talk about how they swam in that river And how it was you know crystal clear and so we were doing this within a generation where we can undo it a this. Yeah i remember something. Rogin there Think you're quitting somebody who's Scientists about how we don't really understand how the biology of soil works we we don't understand all the processes that happen around crops in and around a land It it's something we've gotten into but we're really don't have a great grasp of it. Yeah it's a new area in terms of the science. And i think i really tried to I tried as much as possible in the book to not things with a preconceived notions Were with where the data in the people that i met with what they said And there is this idea in some circles and i think again very well intentioned that You know soil is the the sole for climate g And no one. I think i. I wanted that to be true. I want that to Because you know you see how The damage the current use of synthetic pesticides. Insecticides fertilizers are doing but when you look at the research and speak to the scientists studying things. It's not entirely clear yet. and so There is a very clear science and consensus within the scientific community about how these regenerative agricultural practices that we were talking about before the you know. rotational grazing. And things like that. How they Improve soil health and they help absorb water but they there is not scientific consensus on whether you know the i'm the ability of soil to absorb carbon in the atmosphere so you know again it's arguing for nuance here and for iteration. Hope that one day there will be a scientific consensus in. We can really you know. Lean into that as a solution but we can't be Dogmatic before the science fairs one of my main takeaways from the book so far has been if you check out the label on your clothes. It won't tell you what chemicals were used to make them and then you go on to say if a garment says it's made from one hundred percent organic cotton. It only means the cotton was grown without the prohibited pesticides. Synthetic fertilizers fertilizers etc. Organic has nothing to do with the chemical processes that we just went through Great detail in the textile creation phase. Beware of brands that over promise and equate organic with nontoxic clean or safe which if the great population knows. This will probably hurt organic brands. But i think we talking about on this show where not alive consumers. Listen to this. It's people in the business. Hopefully this gives people running those brands. Time to rethink that and and take those steps to to clean up. What's going on between it. Being organic cotton and being finished product and that the aim of the book is not to say. Don't buy organic cotton and choose conventional. It's more to To have people understand whether that's people within the industry or your average citizen on that you know the organic is not the is not the be all and end all And you know and to to really understand the The full impact of the clothing that we purchase. And i think that the other kind of main reason that we really need to do this in this through line of our conversation about that industry itself driving sustainability sustainability conversation. Is that if you market something like organic or sustainable then the it becomes Like oh this is something i can buy and feel good about versus everything else but the biggest driver of impact production is not how the product is made. It's how often we wear it And so by by by Making language more accurate people can understand that. It's not like oh this is some like here. This is something that you can purchase with abandon on. It's it's the clothing that we produce is going to be resource intensive no matter. How thoughtfully were doing it. And so the the role beyond pushing for a policy change on from your actual purchasing practices to love the things you buy and buy fewer of them. What was your biggest surprise in all of your worship to bring this together and hard to say if biggest surprise were you little Not little there were revelations along the way I think there were some. You know parts that i found truly Devastating and one of them was a woman. I met in sri lanka. This in the book is law Who spoke to me about her work in the garment industry and in sri lanka. I think this is Other on other apparel industries is while there's a move to Daily because it's very hard for garment workers to Live up to the expectations of fulltime mark especially other obligations like And so this woman was on had become a day labor in.

"A gender disparity there well You had a fixer sneaky. In posing as a buyer at a wholesalers operation and got to senior a lot you maybe weren't supposed to Quoting here from the book through a haze of cigarette smoke. The wholesaler informed me that is clients included forever. Twenty one which. I believe based on the display of ripped ash acid wash jeans. He showed off and that was just the beginning. Can you take us through your adventure that day. Yes so. I i in in driving this area. You just c The denim capital of the world. Basically you know as we were driving through to get to speak to this man There was just like open. Warehouses where people were sitting on stools like just onto the street Sewing and finishing on an like really just a denim city And so then you know after driving through that in parking Going up to this man's firm Yes he. This laid a plethora of Acid washed looks bomb. And i present at the time and i wasn't wearing any makeup and i was just very innocently like asking him questions and i think that Innocence help our preceived innocence. And i like i've never been. This is so fascinating to me. I've never gotten to do this and How does how does this all happen. and so you know he showed me and i we went and he you know he took me. It was the showroom that we started in and then he took me upstairs to where they were doing. The finishing and so that was just piles of half-finished genes. You know that would be definitely failing. Any review And these like piles and piles of jeans People hunched over sewing machines. And then i said like how. Where does the where does the denim comfortable like. I'm just so curious. And so then he He said oh. It's i think like my cousin or something and i was like. Can i see it. I've never. I've never seen this before and so You know he was very kind and he sent me with his assistant You know down a drive and i. It was quite terrifying. Because there were i think he was like watching three different music videos while driving with like three different phones displayed in various parts of his car. And we went to We went to the. That was the wash house on. And the and the we've it was in the same patient And that was very different from any wash house that i have seen where there was just chemicals sloshing onto the floor. I was very lucky that i was wearing rubber. Soled shoes that day because they were just like it. The floor was just full of chemicals and then on the side of the building was Were missing different steps along the way and i remember the driver. The ceo's assistant is kind of look we didn't he didn't speak english know Speak nandor kind of looked at me funny like are you really gonna do. This kind of look. Gingerly went up and There they were spraying on notice spray. For finishing on the denon which i then later researches a unknown percentage and one person was wearing a mask But that was you know. That's the part that were not supposed to see and then i left thessaloniki. We say goodbye. I went back Without the driver anybody on the company and i went back and just saw that the effluence the chemical stuff that was on the floor. Just there was a A pipe that just went straight into the river and i went into that river that was like black in oil-slick and bubbling with chemicals in. I walked away in on an you know you saw there. Was this quiet setting of agricultural plots next to this. Black acrid river To which the. I went back and did desperate search about how the health effects of all those chemicals no on the agriculture that on the agricultural products are then consumed in those areas. It's pretty devastating. What what we're doing that. We don't see. The human cost is.

"You mentioned was China's power grid is more dependent on fossil fuels than america's are europe's and that seventy five percent of the clothing industries carbon footprint comes from textile production And the the whole fashion industry contracts between four and eight point one percent of the world's total carbon footprint. But this is this is based on weird kind of random estimates because nobody really knows what's going on inside of china and inside of vietnam and bangladesh because we're not able to track all those numbers these are all rough estimates right. Yeah i wouldn't maybe characterizes random. But but i would agree with you. That the their attempts and they none of it as coming from peer reviewed journals Be at least. Give us some confidence. But based on the estimate you say fashion contributes the same level of greenhouse gases as france germany and the uk combined to the fashion industry. Stacks up against france. Germany and england. Altogether yeah and that's even at the lower the lower estimate. Yeah and i think that goes back to again like what we were speaking about before. Which is that. He will can't conceive of the impact of the industry because it's not in front of us right into like when we were taught about climate change in our role. And i think people can envision in the exhaust coming out of the car is in like they physically put gas into their car. So i think that people can see. The aim of the book is to get people to see. You know that that when we have these really energy intensive processes and those processes are connected to an electric grid that runs on fossil fuels primarily coal. That's going to have and then we only wear clothing for you. Know who has a very short life in our 'cause it that is going to result in a significant contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. Yeah or things like the. Un's sustainable development goals aggressive enough to make friends or is that just wore greenwashing that makes it easier for corporations to to check a box and and to ignore the immediate problems. They're causing the sustainable development. Goals are good Overarching goal themes in goals to have in mind. But i think ben trying to be the lawyer. Is that what i what i wanted to clarify. I think people think of these goals and human rights as things that exist you know that are legally binding in the way that if we don't pay our taxes we're gonna go to jail or at least pay a fee But they're not and the internet these the un can have guidance but it's up to legislators to implement then and so any of the you know things coming out of the un are not legally binding can't send a country to jail. He now and so they can only be Guidance what we what we need to do is have policy in regulation and legislation. That puts the same as that we built. And then no continue to build off of venice games may domestically were far from perfect. You know to to set a level playing field global which we can do through our own domestic laws especially in places like the eu in the united states which has such a massive market. And so what you you know. What the united states can do or even a large state can say if you want to sell to our market. You have to play by our rules. And that's the way that we can use domestic law to have an international rate. It's like we could immediately say you can't bring clothing into the country unless you certify. The labor was at least half of american minimum wage and that would change the whole ballgame overnight. But we could do that. But we haven't scratches one's head. But i think it's because a lot of orders were already placed and those products have already been produced in their chips on the way and it's a giant snowball i. It's you know but these things. I think it's important to see that these things are addressable. You know we can laws do change and we can. We can change. We just have to envision what that change would be i would add just one nuance that i think we're in this non. Nsi we've been calling for this. Discussion is that The former ceo Of argued that without these very bad jobs. You know people. There wouldn't have jobs at all and it's not an argument that i like but at what i what i do. Think is that We do need to move the conversation to have. These jobs are not you know if we set a floor of what wages should be what and the and the fashion industry or. Let's say the fashion industry decides that can't produce this much clothing in still exists within planetary bounds in so we have to slow down and let let's just say for the sake of his argument that that would mean that factories wouldn't have to close. I think we need to think about from a development perspective. What.

"Nothing short of insane. The your point. Seven percent zero point. Seven percent of the cotton produced is organic cotton. so that's less than one percent but then on top of that we pile chemicals to process it so something that may have a label of organic. Cotton really has a lot of inorganic stuff. Piled on top of it before it becomes a product that people buy and then put on their bodies. So it's covered in chemicals. You'll think that was one of the points that i wanted to make in the book. Is that Because the industry has been driving. The sustainability conversation has been reduced to of these labels. And so i think you know well onto frontal talk about organic. Is i think i going into it. Had the idea that if something was organic and it meant that it was more sustainable better for the climate but it isn't that exactly Organic means that there are no synthetic. Fertilizers pesticides us on the cotton field. That actually isn't tracking the soil health. That we were just talking about And so that i think is just Confusing misleading and then over. and above. That if you have an organic clothing is marketed as organic I think again one would think that it means that the whole process is organic. But it doesn't just need that the cotton was not on the grown with synthetic chemicals in Fertilizers and so you know. Then it kind of us think you're buying this good thing where you know when we actually look from a climate change perspective The hot spot now. Most significant impact is not on the farm on its on its at the textile and so you know i think the kind of like the importance to me of the book is helping people understand You know just where the different kind of areas of impact of our clothing our and to move away from this This kind of empty language like is matters because it's a regulated word and unlike most of the other words used in this space is actually regulated. But we need to move away from this kind of black and white language of sustainable fashion versus everything else. There is no sustainable fashion. We're not like growing trees here. It's it's it's really a matter of degrees of how much a garment or the process. But you know the company behind it is working to reduce impacts on specific things whether it's water greenhouse gas chemicals labor standards but it's always a matter of degrees and so i think what i related in trying to tell the story of our genes is also just helping people understand those degrees of difference and move away from this place that were in of marketing. Things sustainable how far are we from not just carbon neutrality but chemical neutrality is. That's something we can even describe right now as to the gulf that we have to cross to not putting toxins out there. When we make something. Well i i think it's important. Not all chemicals are bad on an. I think the most important thing is that those chemicals are well managed and that is something far off from the reason. I know that they are far off as i went to china and sri lanka and bangladesh. And you see the rivers there And they are varying degrees of black and toxic smelling even burning. Your eyes and you. I as i Demonstrate in the book. I walked to the back of some of these factories in new jersey. The effluence just bubbling out into the water that are then used as no for water to irrigate agricultural pops. There so we are. We are far I don't wanna say we're far away. It really is a matter of brands and companies Witnesses a priority like these. Things are highly solvable They just haven't been prioritized. So i don't wanna say we're far away you know if tomorrow companies decided that this is a real priority. It could be something a solution that is very much within reach. Its doesn't require any technology on that we don't have We have the wherewithal to to manage. These moves have created the incentives yet to some of the statistics in the book I kind of knew but to see them in black and white was like this one today. More than ninety eight percent of clothing americans were made overseas. I it just keeps it real to see that in print. So easy to feel an abstraction from these things. america's rivers are becoming cleaner and and not many of us live close to an industrial farm center. We've might notice that. The natural bacteria in the soil is dying so distanced from these signs of danger. Yeah yes you're absolutely right. And i think that's really one of the challenges when it comes to The fashion industry's impact in. Why people are less familiar with it. Is that we still have a conception like i think the average american like knows what a harmless light right. They have some sort of idea. even city dweller. But you know the the even. The rise of the epa came about in part because of The rivers looked lacking the colors of the fashions of the day in the us at one stage when it was it was made here and it was people seeing that in fighting back was kind of the roots of the environmental protection agency. The same actually is the same on labor standards. It was women garment workers in new york. That were the The early fighters for labor protections in are credited in part with reading basic things like this concept of the weekend and when we created this globalized world in which we found ourselves in There's nothing like. I don't think inherently wrong with globalization is just the way in which we implemented it where it was like all of a sudden all of the things that we fought for in the standards that we thought for domestically on were not advanced. They were just ignore globally and that's That's no one in looking at the solutions. Ray we go from here is we need to create that global framework. So it's not this race to the bottom. It's.

"Us were both walking around. Getting strange looks from trade show vendors when we asked where the made in usa products were and what their supply chains looked like eight or ten years ago Let's slightly slightly less strange question to ask them now As we both persisted with that question for her it is led to the creation of a new book that we'll be discussing in a moment here. The book is called unravelled the life and death of garment the book explores in great detail. The end and lifestyle cycle of denham from fibers grown in the organic cotton fields of texas through wash houses in china cut and so in other countries the marketing and distribution of finished products. And what happens when people eventually throw them away and We'll have a linked by the book in the show notes. Of course maxine. Beta welcome to american fashion. Podcast for having well thanks Let's start with zedi what is ad. And where did the idea for that. Come from so Xavi was a fashion company and we got started in Which is no longer. I should probably make that housing shutdowns eighty to start the new standard institute. Which is the organization. I run now. I can kind of just walk through that. Trajectory also explains the the book but basically zedi was. It was meant to be at the outset. Kind of the whole foods of fashion. It was supposed to be before hosted by amazon. Of course it was supposed to tell the story behind. Beautiful product in. What ended up happening is as we tried to tell the story behind beautiful product which is why like you. I was asking a trade shows where the product team from I quickly realized the quickly realized on eighty team that there wasn't a company that we could turn to that really knew its entire supply chain And so that then adds eighty led us to start down this path of creating our own products our own garments and we went on to the actual supply chain and understood what it meant to farm what it meant to ranch what it meant to die to spin to we to cut into so And through that process at eighty we would put out these kind of vary like hid pick super user friendly diagrams about the impact of the industry. And we would get brands much much larger than ours reaching out to say like thank you so much. This information is so helpful for me in my tea. Not that saito's like what you don't you don't know this stuff And it shouldn't like now of course. In retrospect they shouldn't have been surprised. But i wasn't the time and what i really realized is If i really wanted to make an impact in the industry it wasn't going to be through the creation of more clothing as low as much as we were working to reduce the impact on. If i really wanted to create impact it was gonna be through clear information and education And really bringing the scientists that i was getting to engage with on bring bring them kind of front and center in the conversation because you know up until very recently And i would still argue today. That sustainability has really been a conversation led by brands. And so that's meant something very specific and hasn't necessarily meant You know he been in line with planetary boundaries in which people are parody fit fairly paid. So that was kind of the impetus to really knows. It was definitely a difficult decision to Closed downs eighty. He like what were you doing. What are you doing but I remember kind of speaking with Are our person who ran. Pr jaclyn jose. Wouldn't it be great if we didn't even have to sell clothing. Could just talk about the issues. So that is what. I decided to do that. That's the new standard institute is really trying to bring very clear information from the scientists from people with actual lived experience whether that's factory owners are factory. Workers are farmers or scientists. And then the the impetus to create to start the research for unraveled was with zedi. I got to see what the best in class facilities look like. You know i i could tell you. What an organic cotton sealed book like. But i know you know. I read a lot of reports but i didn't know i didn't have on the ground experience with what did the rest. What did the average garden look like. And so that was That was what i was trying to look for in in creating. This book was getting that understanding in needing the actual people in places seeing the places behind things that most of us wear every day on. So that was that was eighty. That's i and that that was the backup of the book. Is the new standards institute. A nonprofit or is a for profit company a nonprofit organization early in the book I'm quoting here You say at one point genes may have represented an ideal of democracy and equality but the genes our society is wearing have become frayed. To the point of distaste- if we want to reclaim true democratic values we need to reexamine our political and economic systems are woven into the clothes. We buy where and discard and the book goes from. There sounds really cool. How did you start. Did it start with just starting to collect information in knowing you had stuff to share or did you set out to create a book from the beginning so really. The idea of the book came about at the same time as the roots of the new standard institute it. It was really one in the same. What i did not realize i was writing until after i wrote it was. I thought that this was a book about the clothing industry and it was going to be story about our close what i didn't realize i remember having drinks with my editor at one stage in the middle of this. I said you know my agents. Are you know alice like just so you know. This book is kind of become not just about fashion. It's a bit of a critique of neoliberal capitalism and. That is something i didn't intend to do. But when you start digging into the story of genes that gets you into a story of cotton cotton than gets you into a story about slavery on it gets you into the story about the institutions of capitalism. Knows you then. Follow the path of Of our clothing than from the cotton fields. No you get into globalization and how that happened and why that happened in which way it happened And you get into the you know the race to the bottom that Kind of this fairly unregulated.

Maxine Bdat's Denim Odyssey

"Maxine. Beta welcome to american fashion. Podcast for having well thanks Let's start with zedi what is ad. And where did the idea for that. Come from so Xavi was a fashion company and we got started in Which is no longer. I should probably make that housing shutdowns eighty to start the new standard institute. Which is the organization. I run now. I can kind of just walk through that. Trajectory also explains the the book but basically zedi was. It was meant to be at the outset. Kind of the whole foods of fashion. It was supposed to be before hosted by amazon. Of course it was supposed to tell the story behind. Beautiful product in. What ended up happening is as we tried to tell the story behind beautiful product which is why like you. I was asking a trade shows where the product team from I quickly realized the quickly realized on eighty team that there wasn't a company that we could turn to that really knew its entire supply chain And so that then adds eighty led us to start down this path of creating our own products our own garments and we went on to the actual supply chain and understood what it meant to farm what it meant to ranch what it meant to die to spin to we to cut into so And through that process at eighty we would put out these kind of vary like hid pick super user friendly diagrams about the impact of the industry. And we would get brands much much larger than ours reaching out to say like thank you so much. This information is so helpful for me in my tea. Not that saito's like what you don't you don't know this stuff And it shouldn't like now of course. In retrospect they shouldn't have been surprised. But i wasn't the time and what i really realized is If i really wanted to make an impact in the industry it wasn't going to be through the creation of more clothing as low as much as we were working to reduce the impact on. If i really wanted to create impact it was gonna be through clear information and education And really bringing the scientists that i was getting to engage with on bring bring them kind of front and center in the conversation because you know up until very recently And i would still argue today. That sustainability has really been a conversation led by brands. And so that's meant something very specific and hasn't necessarily meant You know he been in line with planetary boundaries in which people are parody fit fairly

Prayers That Get Answered

"There's a period time in my life. Where i really didn't know that god could annoy somebody wearing denim. I mean you would have no more caught me up here in a pair of jeans. I thought god only anointed polyester went somewhere in the morning was so thick sliced with a knife and everybody on the platform looked like they hadn't been out of bed too long and i thought well i guess god doesn't care all that much it's our heart demands and i still think that we should do our best for god and i was talking to my son. Who's you know. He gets all that better than me. Because he's thirty five years younger than i am and i said well you should. You should do your best. You should dress your best for god and this is my best dressed up. you know. it's so silly to get into all that. What do we think. Moses looked like when he went up on the mountain to get the ten commandments. So i don't know john. The baptist certainly apparently was weird. I mean he wore camel's hair. Eight wild locust honey outta trees went around screaming at payback raped. I doubt that we could receive from him either. I mean this is. I have to look at things like this.

"I sit down with bobby. She is the co founder and creative director of sasha and bobby and also co founder of the newly launched the good cloth company because i linked sasha and bobby with formal evening wear. I wanted to ask bobby about necessary. Pivots since the start of twenty twenty. Plus i wanted to know how she and session. Her husband pulled off the launch of a second brand mid pandemic welcome. Bobby hi thank you for having me So yeah it's kind of fortuitous. How we are here in the strange time by trying to make the most of what we have our brand of course was a elevated eveningwear line and over the course of time for the last three years. We have been actually looking at the business. Say how we can scale it how we can actually make it a little bit more. You know kind of all things occasion whether it's day all evening so that a deliberate attempt was made by ass. Wanna say by this twenty nine hundred so went so we had started that any way Luckily we used our website to showcase of you know whether you would soon be clothing during the day with its for luncheon or whether it was for a meeting all whether it would be a day wedding so so that graduates shift had actually started internally from us a end of thousand eighteen early twenty nine hundred anyway and i think the pandemic helped us to push it little faster so that was important to us and we see a lot of data come through our website. We see a lot of data. Come to our church that actually is responding to the run We get because there was the demand mean last year was a disaster for all of us because all of us were told not going anywhere on so we actually internalized that. Actually you know The talk was always there. We kind of put it into action. Twenty nineteen but we did. We added more Silhouettes designed details and all of that for this spring. On was that is brandon the entire entirely. You know where you have day viewed fabrics like linen. That never used in the past. We used we consciously made the The citizens of buying fabrics and producing them in that particular place. For example. If you bought the linens from we would make them in robotics. If you buy this caused from china we would make it in vietnam so we deliberately internally started You know thinking that it's better to buy local wherever it is from denim board as opposed to mind fibers from vietnam shipping them to india. It's just the freight the back and forth off it. I think all things that we were thinking of as a brand anyway over the years we had to put into play last year and this year so it all kind of came full circle now and i feel. This is a resurgence rebuffed for brandon. Away so They will at least Bobby announced that you look at the site and you look at the brand followers or the influencers sneeze whoever owned. They're kind much more broader than what we had in the past.

But then innovation sa- mills in italy started producing stretch denim which meant skinny jeans. Easy to get on and pretty comfortable and flattering customers went for them. Skinny jeans dominated runways and city streets in two thousand and two two thousand five two thousand ten two thousand fifteen in the land of fast fashion seasonal trends. The skinny jean was like caesar dominating everything refusing to let go of his grip of our. And amy laverton said. This actually was kind of hard on fashioned. Companies is something that i feel guilty about working trend forecasting because of see we all have enough stuff as it is but obviously a part of the apparel industry.

Sea Hunt - It's Still Alive: Point of No Return

"It's time for another installment of seahorn. It's still alive in this time. We're going to season four episode one titled point of no return and it premiered on january seventh nineteen sixty one sixty years ago. The episode starts out with a boat pulling up alongside coast guard cutter. The boat is dropping off a reporter. Dorothy may brooke. She is heard that. Mike nelson is on board and figures. There must be a big story. If he's involved. The captain of the cutter tells dotty that you'll have to wait three days to talk to mike. The research is about mike. Living and working out of the scuba sphere. A two hundred and fifty feet now. That was right at the beginning of the work. That the davy jacques cousteau and ed link. We're doing on underwater habitats so sea hunt was a little ahead of the game after dadi get some basic information from the three scientists on board the cutter. The scene shifts to mike underwater. He's in doubles swimming with a big bag of rocks. And he's going entire inside the scuba sere. The scuba sphere is small diving bell shaped habitat with liquid helium and oxygen tanks. Act out once. Mike is inside. He gets a call from the booth. Lieutenant totally tells him that a tropical storm is heading your way rather than hall him up. It seems that mike is going to ride it out so he strings up. His hammock gets ready for bed in gets into the sack and because he says he can't raid the refrigerator like he normally does. He settled for a bottle of liquid protein. Well you guessed it. The big storm hits and as the cutters tossed about so is the scuba sere. Suddenly one of the tanks cured to the side of the sphere breaks loose and crashes down on the hatch rendering it inoperable. Mike can't fix it and now they can't bring them up and properly decompress. The project engineer vic jennings says it will take a day to make a new hatch. Should they cut him loose. They try to get them off the bottom and ride it out but discovers fear is being dragged it gets caught on a coral formation. Two hundred fifty feet. Mike gears up with his doubles and he has some additional small tanks between the double cylinders. Not sure what they are. But there's copper tubing Spiraling up to the vows on his. Saunders looks like kind of like a still. Maybe it's helium. They never really say as his fear breaks free. Mike reid it along until the cable and telephone connections part and luckily to screw this. Fear settles when the bottom in an upright position. So mike can go back inside and he says that he needs to spend his second night in this chamber of ours. I gotta tell you mike wetsuit. Looks pretty beat up in this episode starting to peel or something like that will now. The storm has passed the cutter realizes that mike is no longer attached. They have a new door but now they have to find a habitat might goes outside and tries to inflate one of his marker. Booties but it won't work at eight atmospheres so he takes out a balloon. Blows it up a bit ties it off to a line and sends it up. Will you guessed it it bursts now. He reverts to filling up a pair of denim jeans tied off at the bottom. I remember this from my time in the navy where you could use your pants. As type of life preserver on. Mike sends the inflated pants to the surface they briefly mark the location before collapsing. But lieutenant totally thought he saw something so they stay in the area back inside scuba sphere. Mike says that he needs to conserve. Air and pray then. He remembers something from this cub scout. Days and concocts a plan to use his wetsuit. Top as a surface marker buoy. He goes back outside. Fills it up and shoots it to the surface and then ties it off to the scuba sphere dadi and or intently scanning surface suddenly dadi spots to wet suit top. Well the next thing we see. Is mike nelson signs wetsuit. Top two hundred and fifty feet dragging a new hatch cable and telephone line across the bottom. He fixes the hatch. Attach is the cable and splices in the telephone. It's cold wet work he says and he's ready to rejoin the human race. Might get back inside. He hits the hammock and sleeps through the hours of decompression. They have to bang on the sphere to wake him up once. Mike opens the hatch up. Pops dotty to give him a big hug. Mike says he must be in heaven. 'cause this is the angel he's been dreaming about what are the best of my knowledge. This is the only episode. That dadi mayfield was in. Although it appears that from the dialogue from lake that daddy was intent on marrying mike nelson or as as he puts it put a ring through his nose. Dorothy mayfield was played by the actress. Joyce meadows whether there wasn't a lot of diving in the point of no return but mike nails nelson was well ahead of the likes of george. Bon jacques cousteau and egg link in deep sea.

Pottery Barn Starts Selling Used Goods

"Home goods retailer Pottery Barn has long been the mothership of quote Shabby Chic. It's Pricey. Items are often carefully designed to gently used even though their brand new that way you don't look like you're trying too hard right But now through a new partnership, the retailer is going to be offering up. It's returned bedding bath towels, table linens, and even bathrobes for sale to the masses. This stuff really has been. Gently used perhaps before you get a case of skin crawling anxiety over covid nineteen, hear me out the new initiative called Pottery Barn renewed is in collaboration with the renewal project. The company cleans and rehabs unsellable inventory including return items that would otherwise end up in landfills. Each item goes through the renewal workshops six step process to make it squeaky clean according to a pottery barn statement products are sorted, graded and thoroughly sanitized with water technology repairs are made if necessary then each item is inspected to ensure it meets quality standards only then does it get a renewal workshop tag certified items are listed for sale on the Renewal Workshop website. Pottery Barn is the first major retailer to partner with the renewal workshop. The company says, this is its first step toward becoming a quote circular business in other words is working to ensure that goods and materials are used for as long as possible. And the impact could be significant. The Renewal Projects Research found that more than eighty percent of what brands consider waste can be renewed and resold. Pottery Barn isn't the only posh retailer to try repurposing last month, modern home goods retailer West Elm got in the game it launched a sustainable line with Fashion Label Eileen Fisher using post. Consumer. Denim Waste Eileen Fisher is taken. Back more than a million garments to keep its label out of landfills the de Garments that were to damage to be worn were washed, repaired, and deconstructed. Then West Elm used them to create a line of pillow covers. Oh, and there's also a repurpose denim swivel chair that'll set you back about two grand west ELM has been working toward more sustainable products for a while. But it's not easy six years ago the company pledged that forty percent of all of its products would be fair trade certified by this year but it has only hit the twenty five percent mark according to Forbes the effort is complex. The company Says Finding, and certifying overseas factories is a difficult and stringent process especially when you're among the first to do so West Elm, does label its products is fair trade sustainably sourced organic or locally made among others. Roughly sixty percent of its product support. At least one of its sustainability initiatives dwell reports. These green business moves may be challenging, but they appear to be smart while the pandemic pummeled many brands early on New York University found that dollar volume sales of sustainable products increased by more than fifty percent and a recent report by research firm Carney found that more than half of consumers. We're more likely to purchase environmentally friendly products because of their covid nineteen experiences. So sure sells has been a Madison Avenue mantras since the Real Life Madman days but today the way to consumers hearts appears to be a little less saucy and little more sustained.

Well, you're looking you're looking at it the that's fantastic, but you also have to look at it too. When some of us you know at the age of twenty three get married and we have kids. Now I'm planning not just for me. I'm planning for my kids and I'm planning for my family and being the responsible gun because that's what mantles is all about right. It's about being a man. It's about supplying for the needs of your family. Those kind of things to you know not just yourself see yourself as awesome when you don't have to worry about the kids in the family. You know. But the other side of it is to when you have the kids and you have the family eventually you and the wife run off to the Carribean. Without. The kids. which can't how'd you do that without planning for it in the long run? This is pretty good. I've had a most of this stuff, but it's pretty awesome. It school bells shit off of each other. You know we used to do this thing called a beer Friday when sit around and just talk about this kind of stuff and Spellers, doubts, beer Thursday and work. We, release it tomorrow morning. It goes live. Drums live. Oh if you guys WANNA call in our chat with us have questions, comments, rebuttals we look forward to your letters. Yeah where he can call the show, Chevrolet the number up on the screen. It is eventually at some point or get in our chat. Radio Show Colin anything think you. Yeah. You can call it. We she's trying real hard to get folks to to pop in and the the phone number is seven, one, nine, two, eight, five, nine, six, three. we don't have an eight hundred number no no. Because most people have cellphones now and you know it doesn't cost anything. nope. I was expecting a nine hundred number. For the calls. Hey. We're not. We don't want to you know stick to our fans. Your Fan. Up On. Okay. So why am I here? We're stealing, you're stealing your audience. I can see that 'cause lyman is actually mine in Awesome Awesome Galaxy Fest candidate? Sorry Linemen will answer these real quick. It's not coming through on our screen on front. So I'm looking at them here a Galaxy Festival superfund will be missed. Yes, I'm. You know that was the worst thing about shutting down. Galaxy Past. Was We did the Nice little what we call Ben Franklin close I. Don't know if you're familiar with that or not. But you put all the good stuff on one side and all the bad stuff on the other side see which ones bigger list. All the good stuff fans. Lyman. I could probably name three hundred of them at the moment, but we don't have that kind of time. Fans were the big thing. But when it came to some of the stuff that we had, you know the the logistics the. The money the whatever there was a whole longer list on. Sure some died some. Well I think. I put on events to. And I've gone on tour and done things where the back end nobody sees that. The forty five minutes or two hours of. The show the presentation, right They don't see the forty, five hours of pram forty five that's it. For Forty five minutes show. I could've put galaxy fest on for forty minutes. Worth of work was that that was like a three day event, right? That was a three day event that took a year ago plan exactly so. In comparison to learn and five songs. Right, right. Well, when Things. What you'll see is a lot of people do the math because I'm just as guilty. You walk into an event like thirty dollars a ticket. Well they just had ten thousand people. That's three hundred, thousand dollars. Well, what most people don't understand is, what did it cost to get to that point? And if you're at three hundred and five thousand dollars that businesses now at a loss Yup And what people don't see that they don't realize what it takes for advertising. They don't realize what it takes to just set up a stage for instance Oh. Yeah or is some places have We went teamsters. You can't loan anything into or out of the building. Right when you gotta show up, let it sit there put it in your little blue circle than they loaded it, and if you are one minute over right. That's an hour of overtime for sixty dudes right and that even falls into play for Another big convention that takes place up in Denver. And they had the same problem you had to be out of the door at ten o'clock and it didn't matter who you were what you were nothing. Nothing else because of the teamsters. which could lean into a whole different conversation with. You know the teamsters are great. They're finding. They're fantastic. For what they originally stood for, but they've taken advantage of our economy and our our employees employment across the across the nation over history and stuff like that, which is just totally destroyed what gets put out to the customer. Did I make sense on that I probably the only union that's worse is probably the Auto Workers Union in Detroit. I read them all. Thing I mean I'm actually from Northern Indiana unlike this close to Michigan Yeah. So right sight Outta Detroit right outside of Detroit. And you look at what Lee Iacocca did trying to break the unions and different things like that. Trying to save those companies going forward on a saint he was right on messing is wrong but going forward. But when a guy pushing a broom win, you know minimum wage is at six herb three dollars an hour but union wise it's fifteen or twenty. something. That's difficult for the company if you will. Yeah well, and then the case of In the case of the Auto Workers Union. Those dues get paid like I wanna see it's ninety six percent of their wage while they're waiting for new jobs anytime they get laid off right. Now the flip is they have to take any job every chance elza say they can't.

That's about where you're at so. If any manual that's for everyone in the army and not some kind of technical mos is is yeah. Now you make me feel bad 'cause I actually did army before I did air force. Okay did upgrade guard bridge-building all those other kinds of fun things. So, then I went airforce it Kinda got smart after figured out that they live you know the air force lives enough air conditioned who? Yeah near condition as opposed to a GP medium in the mud yet with maybe a fan if you're lucky. And If you go tdy to an army installation, your air force, they pay you because it substandard living conditions. And we're just like Oh this is normal and you guys are like, no, it's not that's guys fucking savages from. Exactly but twenty years air force. So yeah, a little bit of a rival rivalry there. I, think we're good. Yeah. I can appreciate everybody. I think all of the branches of service offer unique and special gifts to the mission of defending our nation. They definitely do. The views expressed mantles, not necessarily that the public. Feel left out on that one I feel now now, I know how Rossville when he had a three way.

A couple Martin around anymore They had good runs. They did. So let's talk about a couple of those real quick well. When you're an entrepreneur, you always have to realize that there's something that's going to fail. I mean I in. True Life I think if you look at it because you start something, you'd think it's the greatest idea on the planet and the next thing you know it just it goes away. And whether it's the numbers or whether it's emotion or whether it's the government stepped in or whether. The customers are just not coming. There's always something that's going to declare that that businesses not going to be success. Somebody Pulls Nausea Osborne into Bat in China something. Yeah. Yeah I mean there's all kinds of Nice little hashtags out there these days that you just never know what's going to ruin what but. Without without all of the bad things involved galaxy fest, we own Galaxy Fest my partner and I'm Linda and we did a lot of good things for about five years. There had a great run with that with all of the costs players in all of the the special guest, the the stars that came in and it was a heck of an event. It was festival is really what it was reason why we call a galaxy fest. But the numbers just don't work out and sometimes you just gotTa call it quits, and then we also had ck comics over in Manitou springs which was. A comic shop and a bar actually in the back. And the customer base just wasn't coming in one of these days. You know I wish that all of the. The vacationers and all the tourists and everything would come back and to bring magnitude backup to what it needs to be.

So you know we're not ready to get the Carly Rae Jepsen but we could have. Or? Ralph and stores yet. They should have had Ralph as a judge by the way because that would have been. Okay but let's just just to finish on the runway. I think in general what what went wrong is everyone's wearing like basically a bathing suit. So even though I liked part of SCAR, I. I've been looking at some of the outfits online and I like the outfit. The only thing is that everyone just went out like basically this is the Kimono like. Like some sort of bathing suit with that's made out of Denim and they should have been in the workroom all staring at each other all in basically bathing suits all being asking. Or like the chap situation, why was everyone in chats like? One too many taps. I don't think we saw enough different things done with that. It didn't. It didn't feel like maybe an episode six runway because as they kind of said for Priyankha's.

What Circular Fashion Really Means with Levi's

"Okay, welcome to good together Paul. We're so excited to have you. I'm really excited to be talking to you all today. This is a great time. We've got some exciting exciting product and it's a really. I don't know it's an interesting time to think about changing the way we've been consuming changing the way we've been designing making, and so it seems like a nice inflection point for all. Just sort of. Pause. -olutely. Absolutely I think right now we all are faced with more time than ever before on our hands. It's giving us a great opportunity to be mindful like you just mentioned. BSO listeners were super excited to how Paul Dillinger the together podcast Paul is the vice president head of global product innovation in premium collection design, for Levi, Strauss and company, and I love that we're having the chance to talk with Paul for many reasons. But one reason is because when we think about heritage craft American brands that are known for products that last a long time I. Think everyone has Levi's pop into their head and I'm not just saying that I think has just been a brand that we've all trusted for years. So the fact that we've is is taking a step towards circular fashion were super excited at So Paul I wonder if you wanted to give us a really brief intro of yourself and sort of what you do at Levi's. Sure. Thank you for that introduction I. It's a fancy title and it's but it. It's easy to say I'm a fashion designer. That's that was my training to undergraduate and graduate school. In my MFA in fashion, design and I designed clothes but leave there's a recognition that beyond just the seasonal cycle you know spring clothes fall clothes in spring shows fall shows beyond that just a six month normal fashion cadence. There are some design challenges that take more time. There are some opportunities that you you can't. Really you can't. Tackle problem resolved delivery in in just two seasons sometimes the real. Big changes they need a little more time to be cultivated research developed. And thoughtfully executed and those sorts of projects fall to me. So rather than designing. For next fall or next spring I'm thinking about a systems based approach to changing the design method allergy entirely five years from now or new materials that might actually deliver value ten years from now it's more of a it's a the fashion skillset, but I'm a Senate set to longer view. And and which is interesting because we're the company that straddles this company that straddles. The fashion versus utility space. You Know Levi's were essentially a tool I for minors to make. You know up to. The Goldfields in and and our but. Our value was predicated on technical innovation, right it was the adding the copper rivet to a garment that was wearing out in certain spots and we added that rivet and it made it strong in those spots and we patented it, and then we became like the. Created. This whole this category world's biggest purveyor of Denim, which then slowly changed from being a tool being object of faction. So at once we're this company that has invented A. Thing and durable both in the form and also emotionally durable that people love their genes. Last may become good friends. We're also part of the fashion cycle and we do seasonal product and we try to stay relevant instead of trend and and and and and resonant with the with contemporary consumers, and so there's a dynamic tension in the Levi's in this sort of struggled under. It's sort of carefully weaving those together.

year is one twelve gone already does that make you aware that bond has been a great customer one of the other thought said if you want to save water in your vegetable garden or landscape you might want to just check with the urban farmer store now they have places and mill valley Richman in San Francisco they've been you know a very supportive of some of my projects throughout the garden industry and including new beginnings and they use water wisely and that's a very important thing they have a new way of watering the lawn and stuff like that so that's a really good thing something like Hey we got early riser here with let's go to Bob in Santa Clara either Bob you know your call sounds about like my call my friend well okay well I'm trying to have a call and you don't HM me some

pumpkin seed I'd like to start a little tree from is persimmons are not really come around you're not going to find him in a local nursery so I was given a shot let's see what then and I think you can find a tree in in a local nursery I think that Yagami sallam or today yeah well never mind I thought I suggested yeah give it a try okay persimmons seven I would put them in the not the freezer but in the vegetable compartment for about six weeks may mean just under cold storage yeah okay you know where you put the carrots and peas and all that yep that's where you put them and put it in a put it in a okay put him in one of those sandwich bags and fillable water okay and just keep it cool alright cool it ma'am and then one of them to do or just keep them moist okay this is the and then later

and let him go and see what happens well I do have a greenhouse window without help if I start them inside where yeah but don't do it until after the middle of March okay a week before Easter I said you know listen up take note and cough hi I'm trying not to I'm trying I have a cough button so you'll never know hello I have a you know one of the things now one of the things that I really want to say if you haven't had your flu shot do it by all means because I never take them well I'm normally only didn't you know I normally wouldn't Devin I didn't take them for years and the last year I did and I didn't have any problems with flew through the the whole season this year I said well I've been busy and you know I don't a car anymore that I can drive people don't want me to drive you know just because I'm close to ninety doesn't mean that I can't drive well that's my thought philosophy but that's not there Sir so the kids have gotten together and say no Daddy but anyway it's a crimping my style the you know the you know it's just a terrible thing but fortunately have family and friends and just wonderful people around me that they're just okay bye week just give us a call I'm too damn proud to do that all the time so anyway I've always been independent good grief I've been in business for full fifty sure fifty years have been married for sixty four and all that other kind of this stuff so I'm been self supplying of all the energy and everything else I've ever done so when I don't have a car I I can't just say you know I think I'd like to go up no I can't do that anyway all right option I I just bought a brand new one about Harley Davidson evil flights if new players up down left I guess yeah really that's great my son Dr he goes into the city on and on during good weather on his little Harley and I get nervous about it but you know he's been there for a long time he loves it I guess so in fact if that goes back one day I get a phone call on as he was going to college and he's on his way to Davis is dad my a little two Wheeler didn't work can you pick me up and take me to hold on to the cop it's yeah sure I have nothing else to do brat so I did but anyway

English putting how is the winner let's talk about the variety is this the one it is always is the Asian variety I know that because they do get soft okay so none of those things that taste like a fairly large fruit there is a fairly large fruit well no he picked him she where she didn't center tree whoever this one's didn't in the tree and course the fruit is very small okay I have met they they they did right then and there quite they were quite sweet and then all of a sudden I got these two season about well just give this a try so I'm sure why not I'll get up early and all call ball down and see what he says so so there you've you've got my suggestion okay I will do all righty Bob thank you Bob you take care and I love your name you know one of the nice things about the name Bob you can't miss spell it is the same backwards and forwards so there you go all right Bob from Santa Clara thank you so much for that call in thanks for waking up at a decent time and where is everybody else that's my question anyway let's see lower was I was going to finish all go get your flu shot that's I had a highly recommend it now maybe you're in the doubt her group and I've been there for a long long time and this is one of the I did I did it last year and I didn't get the flu and I didn't do it this year and I got the flu so sleepy fly flew just you know what to do just get your shot is free and it's it's an easy thing to do just whatever well out well let's get back to where we're going to be at the eight thirty our you know I get a lot of questions about ferns and I've had to admit my knowledge on firms is pretty much a limited you know I have a walk through the forest with lots of areas where there are new wanna navy ferns and I pretty well know the names of those and I know how to cook bracken fern fiddle things and even like spare guest and perhaps maybe a top twenty five thirty five more firms I could probably recognize now with this limited knowledge I thought it was a good time to talk about someone who is an expert on this subject to first so in her book the complete book on first and it is all I have to admit she'll give us a better understanding of the subject Moby wine scheme is the foreman of gardeners of the former of gardeners in the New York botanical garden so you know that's a big thing and we're a survey their presence in of over a million years formula forty four hundred million years ago I can't even consider of consider about next year but then that's another thought now and how they've been survive for all of these years now in a book called seeds we describe described at that time the original follow up on all sorts of good places in the world as the seas receded and all that kind of thing so anyway there we are and will be talking with Molly Moby whittling saying in at the nine thirty hours of stay tuned for that in the meantime let's go to Taylor in Santa Rosa Hey Taylor how are yeah all I know right now that I'm talking to you about okay I hope that you get better very fast I don't hear the call so that's good I have a cough button that's reason you know I'm a nurse and I recommend elderberry syrup is it merely the immune system and patients do very well with that hello okay I don't know where you again as you can get it either through Amazon or if you have an Oliver is in your area or a whole foods and the best brands to get because it has no sugar is honey gardens honey god god there's a sexy sounding name is in the if you if you take that he wound every hour during the waking hours it'll cut the illness down in our well pretty good yeah I'm taking somewhat literary yeah I'm taking terror flew right now I've got two more days to go that has helped a lot with the long thing hi well the problem that my doctor was really concerned because I have COPD and you know they don't want to go anywhere close to having pneumonia in your lungs because that's another anyway you have a question for me so let's get to that thank you Bob Bob I actually have a few questions all the first one is when is the right time to prune hydrangeas and do you really have to prune none well no it's not actually okay my recommendation Taylor is to up curled each bloom back as far as you can on the main stem from work comes so what does the gate head right under the dead head is the first by you stop there no you go down as far as you can you go almost to the ground yeah okay and that order in order to get it you do that are ongoing invasion at the worry about putting in the winter time okay okay all right what happens if you prune only hear the first but a new lease a large your dog will that inhibit the flowering of the size it rolled probably yeah I don't I don't know why I do know it's just not the thing you do okay unless you want to get a okay now people who don't Prunum you go you can get a fifteen foot tall hydrangea which may or may not fit into your landscape I know down and finally they do it all the time and I guess they want a fifteen foot tall hydrangea I don't know okay okay my other question Bob is true that he for your pruning roses you should take off the leaves and then wait a couple weeks because of the sugar content god it's one of those things sooner yeah forget it prove the rose pulled the lease and fertilize with alfalfa and that's all you have to do thank you perfect Bobby I really appreciate it and I look forward to your show every weekend you know Taylor I really appreciate all those wonderful people that have to you know you have to point to that because there's all that program before me on all that program after me and so they have to really know who I am and where the where they can get the answers and stuff like that so I'm very complemented by my listening audience okay thank you so much all right on ninety five we're gonna take a little break right now and then we'll pays the bills and do all that out of the way and then we'll go back to some of your questions in.

"denim" Discussed on FashionTalks

"The lens of fashion. I'm your host Donna Bishop and I am here in a beautiful suite at Holt renfrew with the founder and CEO of outland Denham. James Sparred. We'll welcome Donna. Thank you so much for having me and all the way from Sydney Australia. I hope that your jet lag is not too bad of being over this way now for nearly two awake so I'm a settled in nicely. I'm super excited to talk to you about outland but before we get into the story of your brand we'd like to get to snow you a little bit. So can you start with sharing where you're from and what your family makeup is sure. Well look I'm I have an older brother and younger sister and to reverse parents and we actually Will my growing up years were spent on in Queensland in the Gold Coast Hinterland and then out in central Queensland which is right in the middle of Queensland so it's are very rural community about five thousand people in the in the town and surrounded by shape and cattle stations and so I grew up in the country with a love for Australia Australia outback and then found myself. You know moving into more of a city city lost all in later. Years and Queensland is a central Australia so to speak right. It's not on a coast sir. Queensland has at Eastern Coast Lawn and and and then goes right in toward the center of Australia all of us in Canada belief. Australians are surfers so it's good to look where where where the headquarters are. Actually on the goes into land so where about forty minutes from the beach and So it is and what kind of kid were you growing up when you think back to to. You Know James Pre teenager. How would you describe yourself while I was always interested in outdoor activities in fact really will ever wanted wanted to be a cowboy? And that's what I would play as my brother would be out motorbike riding ought to be on a horse Until late years where I Then became a Risa and arising motocross became everything. And that's that's then what I followed through my Martinez and into my as well and when you go back to your eighteen years. What sort of stuff? Where you into kind of music did you? Listen to what we are besides motorcross saying what were some of your hobbies sort of funny music. I'll listen to Nevada Nevada that's But but I had a wide range of things that I listen to. You know I love the beach boys you know sorry And it's not because because I'm from that era but I just think that music school and I like I like having the variety and I think that's reflects my life a little bit is having some variety in your life and then the Las Vegas even live today thought an fashion when you were younger. Well I would say no but I was recently showing a picture that was taken on me when I was about ten years old. And also total poser and it always had to be a pair of Denim Jeans And my shirt was only buttoned halfway up and it was yes apparently yes. I've always been to some degree but I wouldn't see myself that way. I I think we all have a moment when we realized that fashion is more than just close to protect our body. be it because you discover ever it can be a form of self expression or creativity. Can you think of a moment where you had that kind of relationship where you realized it was more than just something to protect. Protect your body from from the Sun. The very first time I ever realized how powerful fashion could be was through launching brand Until then it had very much just being an autumn clothing but when I realized what Howard had everything changed my view of fashion and love fashion. began to grow. I love that you were talking about wearing denim as a young person because to me it makes a very straight line to starting a a denim line I think genes are such a democratic piece of clothing their timeless. They have interesting working class. Histories were these. He's all some of the things you are thinking about. When you were starting a denim line look I have always loved him? And so it's it just makes absolute slits hands that. That's what I would wanNA work with falls in fashion and in fact I remember when we started this it was it was very clear to me. What I wanted to do was never question of anything else And I would often say that this would be the PROC that I would say in anybody's wardrobe that that just like you've said it captured time and it's like a song you know you know you wear pair of jeans and reminds you of of a memory or an experience that you've had and I think that you know when you when you trying to create purpose through through fashion jeans of the way that you're going to be able to change the most in my opinion. I think there's such a not just timeless. But they are ageless as well like from toddler through to absolutely absolutely as old as any of us are blessed to get denims and our wardrobe I know part of your story is that you were traveling in Asia. And that's when you became aware of the crisis of of human trafficking. Could you tell me a little bit about what that experience was an curious which came first your desire to be an activist and and create the sort of like agency of change or to be an entrepreneur was that entrepreneurial bug always a part of you as well look. I didn't think the entrepreneurial bug was always part of me We started this very much backwards to the majority. The of brands you would see I had the opportunity to travel into Southeast Asia with a rescue agency was upon that trip that I saw a little Gulf Sal and it was a life altering moment for for me I could see that. She was very obviously scared and intimidated by where she was and what was happening to her and I often think about what has happened to her. We walked away that not with the agency and You know the comments to me was James. If you look around these little girls everywhere and something triggered and I I knew straightaway that I'm committed to this. I'll do whatever I can do to be part of the solution and so it wasn't at that moment that I thought let's make Jane's it was. I JUST WANNA be a part of the solution and so you start thinking about rescues. What does it actually look like but research just kept taking us back to the fact that these women that we're working with men as well a poor that made vulnerable because of the economic situation that been maybe born into found themselves in in another way? And how how do we get back to back to that part of the problem and if we could solve that. Would we solve this human trafficking problem with one hundred fifty billion dollars it's staggering staggering. It is and this has been a great example of what is possible. Now we're still marco skyline compared to the problem where we're fighting but it's proving itself off to work you know we're we're changing futures by creating opportunities for these women to work in and mentor in while now which is also really exciting for us But if more business fashion itself could could change being able to use use the influence and the ability to provide work opportunities. Unity's to more people in this way. What would happen to the people but then on environmental level as a whole new store and so much opportunity to create positive change? Tell me a little bit about the distance between seeing that little girl on the street and outland Denham becoming a reality. How much time are we talking between those two those two moments? We're talking six years so it was six years of employing people we started employing people neely straightaway We applaud us to are employed the first two goals and they came in as teenagers. They had been Through some pretty horrific things and were desperate for sustainable employment employment and so that was where we started and then it grew to five in non and now we have a hundred staff over there and and it's it's been an incredible journey just to see how well we've had to overcome insistently and all is Haman you problem something you've never thought about before the calms a problem and and If you exist to have a social impact then you're confronted with all of these these issues. You know when you go into this kind of environment you I think that the more they paid the better and then you need to realize that you actually need to look at what living wage is also that they can be taught how to manage money and all these things in it becomes quite complex and it. It was those six years is is we spent. You're really developing not to have a really profound impact on somebody's life. Were you aware of the environmental mental impact of the Denim Industry. When you decided to become a denim company yourself I mean there's through the movie? The river blue which I think is such a powerful piece of cinema cinema in terms of understanding the environmental impact of of the denim industry. Was that something you knew about already. Did you decide to start the business and then go. Oh my harder than I thought. Absolutely the second. I had no idea in fact you know I would call anybody who you started talking to me about these things a tree hugging hippie. Honestly I had no idea I was so ignorant and as I got further into it and a lot more about it I just couldn't turn away from it and realized the dam was creating the most havoc vol- fashion and it nearly seems like strategic wasn't strategic. Nick bought if it would been brilliant to use datum to change this problem because if you go to the dirtiest in the most terrible pot of fashion and stop their improve that to be done. The rottweiler by then the rest of it should just fall into place. Tom and but it wasn't strategic. But it certainly has been incredible journey of learning and coming up with new ways of being able to produce things ethically on on an environmental level and not destroy the communities that we are working in and beyond. How do you because I think there can be this? Desire sometimes to create a hierarchy of responsibility or sustainability. We know that does the environment come before waste and packaging before living wages. Like there's there can be lots of discussion around how to prioritize order ties those things. How do you negotiate all of that? With all of the values that you're keeping in the forefront of your organization. Look Look we've got A. We've got a Hashtag zero exploitation and what that means to us. Is that every decision we make needs to come at no cost I'm working toward it coming at no cost to the environmental the people and so I would say the true meaning of sustainability is it has a social environmental and economic Element to it. And I personally don't think that we should be able to claim sustainability on anything whilst where you're not confronting all of those things based on the fact that a consumer doesn't necessarily understand what it means and so we can. Obviously greenwashing is a big problem today today and we can say hey. He's out sustainable product. It's got organic cotton will as you and I.
