DIY Distressed Denim // Ripped Knee Jeans

You don't need to buy distressed jeans when it's super easy to make them yourself. Even better, no on else will have them! In this week's video we show you how to create ripped knees, holes/ladders, and an overall worn in look.

The production of distressed denim usually does not involve ethical methods. The chemicals and sandblasting used to distress denim to their perfect worn in state have a terrible impact on workers' health and the environment. Before Andrea Moore got in touch with us we weren't aware of this issue, so we hope by sharing this more people will become aware of this and think twice next time you're looking at buying some distressed denim. 



If you want to hear more about the Andrea Moore #EarnYourDenim campaign, check out their page about it here


DISCLAIMER: This video is NOT sponsored. Andrea Moore were kind enough to invite us along to their distressing denim workshop and provided us each a pair of jeans. We decided to make this video because we loved the idea behind the campaign and thought you guys would love to learn the tips we picked up.
