Wear more & wash less with Hiut Denim & Polygiene

Hiut Denim is cooperating with Polygiene to get the added value of Polygiene Stays Fresh technologies making jeans stay fresh, eliminating odour-causing bacteria that sooner or later will be found in the jean, and odours coming from the surroundings, like a smelly restaurant or cigarette smoke. All with the aim to encourage people to try and go as long as they can without washing their jeans. And users can even join their No Wash Club, where the entry bar is set at a minimum of 6 months – all for the environment and for the perfect jean.

“We want to be as low impact as possible, and producing a stretch jean comes with impact. To help reduce this and improve the product, we have chosen to work with Polygiene. Their technology helps the customer Wear More Wash Less. We have chosen to use their BioStatic and OdorCrunch technologies to help improve the quality of the jean. We're looking at introducing this product onto other products”, said Clare Hieatt, Co-founder of Hiut Denim.

“This is a small up-and-coming brand that has set a very challenging goal - to make the best jeans and make them last as long as possible. We are happy to team up with them and see this as a long-term partnership that surely will get attention in the industry. In terms of sustainable use and life cycle analysis, we know that skipped washes will reduce the environmental impact considerably. Plus, it is an excellent example on how to change the way we view jeans and garments – from fast consumables to durables”, said Ulrika Björk, CEO Polygiene.
