House of Denim Project

Welcome to the House of Denim.NL weblog

House of is an initiative to set up a platform for sustainable denim development in Almere (near Amsterdam).

We started researching the feasibility and optimal set-up in June, interviewing denim industry specialists and other experts related to the topics of education and sustainability.

In July, we posted the initial concept online (Linked-In groups for denim, sourcing and sustainability professionals), asking for feedback, input and answers to a number of questions. Replies, interest and support came from all around the globe, so we were very encouraged.

A second phase of project development will start around the end of October - any new developments about the subject will be posted to this weblog. Stay Tuned.
