We recognize that chemicals are needed in the production of textiles, but our challenge is to reduce the use of harmful chemicals and to increase the use of better chemicals.  

We want all our products to be safe for consumers, the environment, and the people who work in the production process. One way to ensure that our production is safe for the surrounding environment is to only work with suppliers with proper chemical handling procedures and approved wastewater systems, as chemicals released with wastewater is a large source of chemical pollution in some countries.  


We have high chemical requirements for all our suppliers, whether production is outside or within Europe. All supplier must comply with European legislation and regulations on chemicals, but in addition, all supplier must sign the Nudie Jeans Chemical Policy including our Restricted Substance List (RSL), that have stricter limitations than the legal requirements for many of the listed chemicals. All chemicals used in the production of Nudie Jeans’ products should comply with the Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL) created by the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) initiative.
