Ecological Genoa Fabric: Our jeans are difference

Ideal jeans: beautiful and democratic

They are the trousers of rock stars, of the authors of the Beat Generation, of sexual freedom, and revolutionary leaders (since the times of Garibaldi).

They are the opposite of ephermal fashion: the older they get the better they are.

They are the opposite of class conscious fashion: monarchs wear them to look like the working class. 

They are the opposite of “plastic beauty”: making all bodies fat or thin, tall or short, young or old more fluid and spontaneous.

The most American trousers come from Genoa and from the area of Veneto

Blue jeans means “ Genoa blue”: the robust but soft fabric brought to America by the sailors of Genoa.

The homeland of brand jeans was in Italy: in the 50 kilometers range around Padua and Rovigo which until a few years ago was the production district of famous brands.

Some workshops have endured, and professional expertise is still available.

What was missing was a simple idea like ours: manufacture jeans today like in the past without saving on workmanship and materials.

Today’s jeans: anti- democratic and horrible

But nowadays jeans are very polluting and globalising.

25% of pesticides and 12% of insecticides are used worldwide in the cotton production.

Too many jeans are manufactured in terrifying working conditions
To produce one pair 1100 liters of water are necessary.

Your skin is in contact many hours per day with the chemical substances of which jeans are imbued: dyes, starches, aging substances….often they are suspicious and uncontrolled molecoles; in the meantime allergies, irritations and contaminations continue to increase.

Ecogeco jeans: democratic and re-bellious

An ideal is worn, not to appear, but to be yourself.

Not to imitate or look like someone else, but to better the world in which we live.

Choose them if you don’t want chemical substances on you skin. If you respect water, the earth and your health.
If you don’t appreciate the false competition that sacks the Italian workers and turns the Asians into slaves.

Ecogeco isn't “programmed to self-destroy” and next year you won’t have to buy a new pair: to be honest we won’t be losing out if, in exchange, you will recommend us to a friend.

Our JEANS PRODUCTION CHAIN

The organic cotton flakes are first spun and then dyed in blue using only pure vegetable indigo.

The denim is then weaved, leaving the weft in its natural colour and warped blue.

We cut the denim with digital programs that reduce waste products even with small scale productions. Then the jeans are sewn by companies in the Veneto area by regularly employed personnel.

organic cotton

The washing treatment is done using only ecological products and treaments.

No chemical substances, only natural products are used: we don’t employ any treatments that are dangerous to the environment or to our health that in the last years have caused a great outrage

About us

EcoGeco brand, specialized in the production of women/men jeans in organic cotton dyed with vegetable indigo originated in 2010 thanks to the idea of Claudia Lubrano and Giampaolo Bianchi, experts of the textile sector.

We have been working in the clothes business for over thirty years as sales agents and have always been active and sensitive towards environmental themes.
The certainty that what we wear is as important as what we eat, convinced us in the second half of 2009 to invest in the production of eco-friendly jeans.

Jeans nowadays are a very polluting and globalized product, often imbued of chemical substances in contact with our skin. We often forget that jeans are a symbol of freedom, the second skin of who wants a better world so we have decided to make them become a reality.

Besides organic cotton, we have chosen to use vegetable indigo dye, one of the most ancient pigments, obtained from the maceration of indigofera tinctoria that confers a shade of colour which distinguishes it from chemical dyes both for its brightness and intensity.

We want to propose an idea of quality that combines environmental and ethical aspects, promoting through our local production, a sustainable product, both from the environmental and social point of view, by recovering and improving the productive know how that distinguishes the Venetian area in the production of jeans.

We use cotton that comes from organic cultivations dyed with vegetable indigo that holds the Gots certification. We pay great attention also in the laundry treatment, respecting the environment and using ecological processing and/or products.
All applied accessories are animal free.

Furthermore, the productive chain is carefully selected and controlled by experts of a sector that has been at the top of the Italian economy, contributing to affirm the made in Italy worldwide.
The samples are carefully studied to give maximum comfort in wearability, two for women (Altair and Kochab) and two for men (Genel and Thabit) and are well finished in the minimum details to offer comfortable jeans, beautiful ,seductive and fit for any occasion or age.


The emblem of our product is the gecko (in Italian Geco), a tiny harmless animal that lives in harmony with nature just like EcoGeco jeans.
