For Black Friday we have closed our website for 24 hours.
As a small maker, we come in each day to make the best jeans we can, not the most jeans we can.
We charge a fair price for them; enough we hope to keep us going as a business.
But for us, Black Friday just feels like a world gone mad.
A throwaway culture when the planet needs us to make things to last.
Hands up, we just don’t get it.
So we are going to sit this one out.
But it’s not all bad.
Patagonia is donating all its sales on Black Friday toward grassroots environmental groups.
REI are closing their website and encouraging their staff and their customers to go outdoors instead.
See you on the other side.

No discounts today. As usual.
But you’ll pay a fair price.
The product will be ace.
The customer service A1.
Our suppliers won’t have been screwed in to the ground.
Our staff will be paid a decent wage
And a few less people will buy stuff they didn’t want in the first place.
That’s got to be worth something, right?

For Black Friday our shop is closed! Instead we want to help you craft a letter or quick note to someone that you care about. Head over to our site and send all the people in your life a reminder that you love them, you’re thankful for them, and most importantly you believe they are worth loving. soworthloving.com#loveyoulovepeople – link
