A Guide of Sustainable High Waist Denim

A Guide of Sustainable High Waist Denim

Finding a good pair of high waist denim jeans is such a struggle. Being petite and having a longer torso is such a pain, I always find it so hard to find high waisted jeans which come above my navel. Also, it’s so rare to get jeans in a clean look without any wash and the sustainable fabric is a question too. So my type of best jeans has to be high waisted, without any wash (vintage look) and 100% sustainable. So I decided to make a list of brands which checks all the boxes of my requirements.

I think they are their own one kind of ethical sustainable and affordable brand for almost the entire clothing range they have. And they cover almost every type of body and size. Their jeans are more of a mid-rise range whereas their newest collection of 90’s cheeky style seems high rise range. 

 

Agolde

Price: $168 – $198
Size Range- 23 – 32
Ships worldwide via different stores
I so love their denim for the sturdy fabric which is 100% sustainable and straight legs. They are one of the rare brands who are actually good with a high rise, straight fit and organic fabrics. I have seen my fellow blogger friends rocking and appreciating Agolde jeans. My personal favourites are Riley in Air Blue and Pinch Waist in Symbol. However you have to be very careful with the size, make sure to check your correct size with the help of the size chart. Mostly they run large so I think sticking to your right size would be perfect.

Size Range- 23 – 32

Ag jeans are my current find of sustainable high waist jeans and I can’t tell you how good they are! They are filtering water waste produced by their own factories and trying to make eco jeans with organic cotton and are very responsible for producing products sustainable.

Summer House

Price: $50 – $75
Size: 23 – 32
Ships Worldwide 
This brand is known for ethical and handmade sustainable clothing and I recently discovered them. They have recently launched their denim collection which 100% sustainably made with 80% recycled cotton and 20% polyester recycled from ocean plastic garbage. I loved their straight denim collection as well as the slouchy ones. They even provide customised jeans if you request them. They are so good with the price of being an ethical brand.

Levi’s

Remember how Levi’s jeans were famous for their plastic bottles made jeans?
They’ve always been on in sustainable production. Who doesn’t love their collection? Before collection 501 and now 90’s inspired High waist Ribcage Jean have been worn and loved across the world.

Ethically handmade high waist jean. 90’s inspired jeans especially in straight fit will look so beautiful with a cotton blouse. My favourite pair of jeans are straight fit Catherine jeans, high waisted and beautiful blue colour.

They are so unique with their idea of redoing Levi’s jeans. Altering old Levi’s jeans into a new fit is a whole new concept and they do it amazingly. To shop from them, you have to be very careful about your measurements, so go through their stock and shop slowly. My personal favourite is their Ultra high stove pipe.

 

Reformation

Price: $98 – $128
Size Range: 23 – 31

I love their mission of using deadstock for production and also their commitment to lowering the water and textile waste. I love their dresses but they are also very famous for their jean collection. My favourite from their collection is Cynthia high waist crop also a bit relaxed Juliet high waist.

They are really good with sustainable fabrics and create their products sustainably by using recycled and organic fabrics. They are really good with structure and fit. Although they are comparatively very expensive so make your choice wisely.

Mango

I love their jeans and they all are made of sustainable fabrics. Only you’ve to be careful between their mid-rise and high rise. They amazingly work for tall and petite both. I have 4 jeans from their organic denim collection and I love them all especially my white organic straight fit jeans, so sturdy and luxurious quality. However, I suggest not to buy their black and grey jeans because they tend to fade their colour with every wash.

H&M

Yes, I know they aren’t an ethical and fully sustainable brand. But I believe people often buy unsustainable fabrics when sustainable and ethical clothing is very expensive. So it’s better and a halfway through to buy sustainable clothing through a fast-fashion store. Which actually encourages them to move towards sustainability fully. However, they have taken a pledge to come fully in sustainable clothing by 2030. If you are planning to buy jeans from H&M, make sure to read the fabric content, only buy if they are fully made of cotton and a bit of elastin. Do not get fooled by their #conscious collection where jeans are partly made of recycled fabrics and mostly with polyester. I especially like their neutral Jean collection. Currently, I’m loving their Natural white wide-legged, Natural white mom jeans, Greige tapered Jeans (which I’m wearing in those pictures above, size 34) and Beige Ankle Length Jeans which are clean without any weird washes and amazing in fit for petite like me.

Zara (join life collection)

Again I’ll repeat the same thing that instead of end up buying cheap unsustainable jeans from fast fashion stores like ZARA and H&M, consumers should be aware of their sustainable lines too. So that they can at least have sustainable clothing in their reach. Although this brand claims to convert itself into a fully sustainable brand, it’s a long way to go. I like their Mom jean Collection in organic cotton from their sustainable clothing range #joinlifecollection. Their fabric was sturdy yet soft on the skin and true high rise for a petite. For example, this pair of straight fit jeans are somewhat like Levi’s Ribcage and are made of 99 per cent cotton and 1 per cent elastin, in which 15 per cent cotton is recycled.
