The Los Angeles-based denim brand Triarchy reintroduced stretch denim in its collection thanks to Candiani Denim’s patented COREVA™ stretch technology, the world’s first biodegradable and compostable stretch denim. This was not the first foray of Triarchy into sustainability, but it allowed the brand to solve the end-of-life problems of synthetic yarns.
The denim brand Triarchy adopted a less is more philosophy
Mark, Adam, and Ania Taubenfligel founded the denim brand Triarchy. As it continued to grow, the three siblings became more and more aware of the industry’s adverse impact on the planet, and in 2016, they decided to stop their production in order to find a better way to make jeans.
After three years of research, Triarchy was reborn as a denim brand focusing on sustainability and responsible manufacturing with a less is more philosophy that does not compromise the traditional quality of the brand’s products. Triarchy looks for suppliers with the same values and chooses materials such as TENCEL™, Better Cotton, and recycled metals. Moreover, its garments are produced using a recycled water treatment system. The brand abolished stretch denim since it is conventionally made with petroleum-based materials until it found a solution: our COREVA™ stretch technology.
Triarchy reintroduced stretch denim thanks to Candiani Denim’s COREVA™ stretch technology
Stretch denim was reintroduced in Triarchy’s collection only in 2020 thanks to our plastic-free COREVA™ stretch technology, which replaces synthetic, petroleum-based yarns with a core of natural rubber.
“We abandoned stretch denim because even if the plastic is derived from recycled sources, it still creates an end-of-life problem — meaning the material is very difficult to repurpose and reuse. By utilizing Candiani’s pioneering of plant-based yarns to create this bio-stretch, we can reintroduce stretch denim into our family of sustainable products, taking creation and end-of-life into account before we bring anything to market”, said Adam Taubenfligel.
