Why 1083?

In 2013, Thomas and Grégoire Huriez created 1083, a brand of eco-designed jeans and shoes made in France. "Traditional" jeans travel up to 65,000 km during their manufacture. 1083 is the distance between the two most distant cities in France. The objective of 1083 is to make jeans and to relocate within 1083km from our home. Objective met, the company has created more than 150 jobs.

An ecological approach

Manufacturing in France is already an ecological approach in order to reduce the planet's footprint. When designing jeans, one of the last steps is fading. This technique is polluting (use of chlorine, potassium permanganate, or sandblasting) and requires a large quantity of water. 1083 has chosen to wash its jeans with the Jeanologia laser, which allows for the most ecological washing (saving up to 95% of water compared to the traditional process, 50% reduction of chemicals and 79% of energy).
