Chino fabric originated in China, hence then name. In the 1800's the British and French used the fabric for their soldier’s uniforms. All AMENDI chinos use 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. This means there are no genetically modified plants, synthetic pesticides, or fertilizers used during the farming process. This guarantees the health of the soil, the local biosphere, and the safety of the farm workers. It also creates a stronger, more beautiful cotton boll. All our cotton is grown, harvested, woven into twill fabric, and sewn into chinos in the same country. By keeping our supply chain in one place we decrease greenhouse gas emissions and increase quality.
We never use harsh chemicals on any of our twill chinos and take full advantage of the latest eco-friendly dye processes. The facility that dyes our chinos is also GOTS certified. This guarantees no bleaches or toxins are used during the dye process and that all water used is processed and purified. It also means the employees are work in safe working conditions and are treated fairly. AMENDI chinos can last for years and years if well taken care of and will only get better with wear.
