Based in Los Angeles, ÉTICA was founded on the principles of fair labor, environmentally conscious manufacturing and social responsibility. ÉTICA employs advanced technologies dramatically reducing water usage by 90%, energy consumption by 63% and chemical usage by 70% compared to industry standards. ÉTICA provides living wages, benefits and ability-inclusive opportunities to their workforce, setting a higher standard for fair labor in the industry. ÉTICA recycles its water for local farmland, compresses used wash stones into bricks for low-income housing and partners with organizations committed to workers’ rights and environmental initiatives around the world.
With their vintage-inspired fits and washes, ÉTICA reconciles the best of the denim industry of old with the cutting edge practices of new. ÉTICA holds a firm belief that sustainability, corporate responsibility and fashion are not mutually exclusive.
