Sustainable raw materials

Our commitment to the planet is materialized in our choice of raw materials.

Sustainable Fibers

Advance was the first denim mill in China to adopt organic fiber on a large scale. Since then, we never look back and increase the use of sustainable fibers year after year.

This focus on sustainability resulted in Advance Denim being the first denim mill in China obtain GOTS certification.

40 % of cotton used is sustainably sourced in 2019

We used over 1,100 tons of Tencel in 2018

We care for the environment and advocate the use of sustainable fibers in our production, like organic cotton, hemp, recycled cotton, recycled polyester, regenerated fibers and many more……

Sustainable raw materials

Advance Denim is actively committed to minimize the environmental impact of each yard of denim we produce.

Sustainable dyestuff

We are the first denim mill to use Archroma Aniline-Free Indigo for our denim developments in 2018.

We use botanic dyes, made of extracts from raw materials such as flowers, shells, fruits, leaves and so on, which have no any side effects on human and harmless to the environment.

  • 2019
    Our Higg Index scored 81 with verification from third party. It was 68% higher than previous year.

  • 2020
    We will continue to use the Higg Facility Environmental Module as a performance measurement and  follow the guideline of Higg Facility Social and Labour Module.

Waste Water Treatment

We have installed our own wastewater treatment plants, which is capable of processing up to  9,000  tons per day.Our COD & Ammonia level are always far below national standards.

Wastewater from finishing process will pass through a membrane bioreactor in our sewage treatment facility. The built-in vibrating membrane system will re-filter the sewage, remove the residual indigo and harmful impurities, convert sewage into clean water.

The clean water will be then recycled back into the finishing range creating a closed loop of recycled water. The indigo dye filtered out will also be recycled.

Sustainable Innovation

Advance Denim does not only focus on clean water but water savings throughout our whole process by using latest water saving technologies, next-generation equipment and process improvements. We are not only purchase sustainable inputs but also invest into machines and infrastructure that make our process as sustainable as possible.  

We set out to revolutionize the indigo dyeing process by introducing Bigbox Dyeing.Bigbox Dyeing shrinks the amount of dye boxes needed to dye indigo from 8-13 boxes to ONE big box. It saves up to 95% of the water needed.
