Aitex and Captain Denim, together for sustainability
In order to minimize the impact that we as an industry have on the environment and thus make the production of our jeans even more sustainable, at Capitan Denim we have begun to work with AITEX on a new R&D project through which We will implement a process that favors the reduction in water consumption -more than 80%- and in the generation of wastewater -more than 90%- compared to traditional processes.

And we can proudly say that we continue to move towards an increasingly sustainable denim, implementing measures that minimize our impact on the environment and at the same time respect the resources of our planet.
