Our jeans are handmade in Italy with love, and the knowledge is passed from one generation to the next. This lasting, close relationship with our Italian partners and the decades of joint know-how are essential to the quality of our jeans. We share a tradition – and a future. Together with our Italian partners, we developed our eco-friendly denim line A BETTER BLUE for a more sustainable jeans production.
Almost all our jeans are crafted in collaboration with three production partners. Candiani, a traditional weaving company, which many refer to as the best (and greenest!) mill in the world, provides the fabric. Our jeans are then sewn by Paul, a family-run business. As there is an expert in every part of the process, a total of 22 different specialists are involved in the production of one single pair of Closed’s signature Pedal Pusher jeans.
The Everest laundry is in command of the finishing procedures such as the washes and used effects. Our bleached and worn-out look, small holes and fading are created by hand to give the jeans their signature feel.
How to take care of denim
Wearing is caring! A pair of Closed jeans only get better with time. As the shape adapts to the wearer, the surface gets its own unique touch, leaving the piece with a personalised used look. The first rule when washing: the darker the jeans, the lighter they can get with frequent cleaning. Generally, jeans are best washed when turned inside out. Choose a low temperature (30 degrees) and do not tumble-dry. We recommend laying your jeans flat for drying, and you should not iron them. And one special rule for raw denim jeans: it is best to have them dry cleaned if you wish to keep their original look.
