Our Universal Thread denim team is working to enable a future where these jeans can be recaptured in a closed loop, by using better materials such as Better Cotton Initiative certified cotton, recycled cotton and recycled polyester. By considering wash finishes that reduce water, Universal Thread has also contributed to over 30% of Target’s total wash water reductions. Our designers also utilize 3D technologies for garment fittings to reduce the number of samples needed. Our team is also always thinking about the human impact of garments, and through our partnership with Fair Trade USA has had our factories certified; this has impacted 41,557 lives to date. Finally, to ensure inclusivity was at the core of the brand, the team designed an adaptive jean that features elements like no back pockets, a stretch waistband and side zippers at the hem for any adaptive needs.
