CREATING BETTER PRODUCTS Since 2012 Dear Denier have created tights, socks, seamless activewear and wire-free lingerie for consumers who are tired of the low quality and harmful production of the conventional fashion industry. Their best-selling products are continuously tested and improved with the help of innovative manufacturers and customer feedback. With a strong focus on using premium recycled materials and low impact natural fibers, they source their yarns from suppliers with environmental and social responsibility certifications. INNOVATIVE PRODUCTION Their products are made in Italian zero-waste factories, using locally sourced materials and waste-free 3D knitting technologies. The factories have effective energy and water consumption systems in place. Air and water from dyeing and processing is cleaned and recirculated, securing no harmful emissions to the environment. CIRCULARITY IS KEY Their products are made using mainly recycled nylon and recycled elastane, and when they wear out you can send them back and participate in the Dear Denier Recycling Initiative. The goal of the Recycling Initiative is to collect worn-out nylon hosiery from retailers and customers, and make new tights, using a technology the company is currently working on with Danish scientists.
