Linda Loudermilk Adds Denim to Spring 2007 Collection

Not to be outdone by Levi's, Linda Loudermilk, the LA-based fashion designer noted as one of TreeHugger's Best of Sustainable Designers, has announced that she'll add a denim collection to her eco-couture Spring 2007 line. From fiftyRx3:

Loudermilk uses a corn-based fiber called Ingeo from Italy and sasawashi, a Japanese leaf that has antibacterial properties, in addition to bamboo and organic cotton blended with one percent spandex. Treatments, too, were developed to be environmentally sustainable. The washhouse recycles its water; sandblasting is done by hand, and washing machines use ozone to oxidize jeans for a sun-baked look.
We're looking forward to seeing the jeans go from the runway to the streets. ::Linda Loudermilk via ::fiftyRx3
