US denim brand Noble highlights how its domestically made small batch jeans are keeping the production jobs alive in America.
Noble Denim is a brand with a conscience. Founder Chris Sutton and his Cincinnati-based team produce small batches of affectionately made denim goods that will make you feel proud of how they are made. With the entire operation based in the United States, Sutton and his team of craftsman create quality product that is 100% domestically produced in the most sustainable way possible. Each pair is constructed with all American-made components with an emphasis on details like selvage materials, copper fastenings, superior fit, and chain-stitching.
As the brand continues to grow, Sutton has been looking for like-minded skilled American craftsman to help support his mission to create high-quality, responsibly-made denim. In addition to their Cincinnati workshop, Sutton has recently secured a partnership with one of the last standing clothing manufacturers left in the heart of America. In light of this, Noble released a charming and real portrait of Danny Swafford, the Tennessee factory owner and longtime denim craftsman, whose business was put into dire straits by overseas manufacturing. The video highlights how Noble’s partnership is revitalising Danny’s business and keeping production jobs in the states. Head over to Noble’s site to learn more about the brand and it’s facilities.
