The key producer for our current collection is A14, a premium denim manufacturing company based in Istanbul with 30 years of experience. A14 is an ‘innovation’ of Akozbeler textiles, which started in 1983, and their mission is to provide the ‘highest quality in both production and design’ and looking to offer this quality at ‘competitive prices’- matching One Denim’s own mission.
Azkobeler combines ‘global fashion trends with high quality production’, with their teams looking for the newest styles and most innovative techniques for their customers; additionally, all their stitching and washing is done in-house, ensuring stricter quality control measures.
The scraping and distressing on the jeans is all done by hand, unlike many other factories that use computerised machinery. Marks and contrasts are also made on the denim by twisting and tying the jeans in different ways; this gives a naturally worn look and ensures each pair of jeans tells an individual story. They have strict quality control measures ensuring every process production is checked before it continues down the production line.
In terms of ethics and sustainability, the company is fully aware of the environmental and social responsibilities that must be considered as a factory and therefore puts ‘sustainable systems’ in place; suiting One Denim’s personal want for ethical production.
This ensures the products they provide us, at One, are of the highest quality and made ethically.
