One pair of jeans uses 2,900 gallons of water before you even make your purchase. Armed with this newfound knowledge, Triarchy, established by three siblings (Ania, Adam and Mark—hence the name), expanded its classic denim brand (Triarchy Denim) with a new line of sustainable luxury: Atelier Denim. The women’s-only collection is centred on high-quality pieces built to last, incorporating trendier twists such as patchwork, fringe and linen prints. Each garment ensures a zero-water footprint by reconstructing vintage denim and repurposing old materials. The company’s hope is to educate consumers on ethical shopping practices and prove the futility of fast fashion.
