Officewarming

Meeting up with our friends, family and neighbors.

Last Thursday we invited friends, family and neighbors to celebrate in our new home. After painting, moving, rebuilding and finally finding our beautiful couch, we opened our doors for the community. They were the first to see the place we spent so much time in and to see our new in-office ‘showroom’ unveiled.

Our new office

In a casual morning filled with coffee, jeans & pepernoten we officially opened the MUD Office. We gave a little behind-the-scenes tour. It was quite special to be surrounded by all those people who have given us so much trust and energy the past year.

This new office is a concrete representation of what we value: openness, to experiment and collaboration.  The open space makes it possible to interact with a lot of people, and yet there are all these different small corners and areas where you can work more privately. We created the perfect office for ourselves.

This festive morning the coffee was provided by our dear friends at Moyee Coffee. Thanks for your baristaskills, Evelien. For food we turned to the sweet Kim and Evi who made many apple pies, you go girls! Emiel from Nutorious Peanutbutter provided us with a nice peanutbutter tasting. We still enjoy your ‘white pepper peanutbutter’ at our daily lunch. Frecious treated us with some nice slowjuices, 100% raw and delicious.

A big thanks to you all. And a special thanks to Charles Ruys who made amazing pictures that do justice to our new place. Check out some of his pictures below!

Remo for transparency

Desire for transparancy

In a culture where people increasingly want to know what they are buying, the word ‘transparency’ becomes more and more important. That’s why MUD Jeans has joined forces with Remo. Remo is a Dutch company initiated by textile experts. Remo’s mission is to make recycling visible and simple. With the ultimate goal to inspire people towards sustainable consumption and conscious fashion.

They have built a system that provides simplicity in the complex supply chain. Because when it comes to producing jeans, many different stakeholders come to play. The cotton is sourced in one place and the production takes place somewhere else. How much do these different partners affect the impact on the environment?

– The remo key 

The keyword in making recycling visible is transparency. That is why Remo developed the Remo Key, a fun little card with a track & trace system that can be accessed through a QR code. The QR code that links to a website where you can find information about an item’s origin and past life. Here you will learn where and how our jeans are recycled. You can find the precise percentage of recycled content and the resulting environmental savings on Water, CO2 and Energy.

Every jeans carries the message 

At MUD Jeans we think it’s really important to inform our customers. Many of them question the status quo and have high expectations when it comes to transparency. They want to know what they buy, and are interested in the details that are often forgotten to be shared. Collaborating with Remo helps us in communicating the desired transparency. As much as we would love to take everybody on a visit to our factories, this simple little card really gives a sneakpeak of the most important facts. From 2017 onwards all our jeans are provided with the Remo key.
