Raleigh Denim Workshop creates cotton jeans with the smallest carbon footprint on earth. Originating from North Carolina, it's the state's first crop of certified organic cotton. The brand originated from the question of how an ideal pair of jeans would be made and what would they be made of? The answer is organic cotton grown, milled and manufactured locally.

CEO Victor Lytvinenko teamed up with Cotton of the Carolinas to grow organic cotton in the state for the first time and formed a network with local businesses to support the cause.

Consumers will be pleased to know that this small company is involved in its denim production from the bottom up, interacting with the farmer that grows the cotton, gins it, spins and weaves it while cutting and sewing takes place in the shop itself.
