About

Denim Wallets and Tablet Cases Made To Benefit The Environment. Create a better future TODAY. YOU can make a difference! 

SALVEDGE DENIM is:

1. Beautifully designed.  Our products have been thoughtfully designed and meticulously crafted for the urban adventurer.

2. Responsible. Using sustainably-sourced denim is our way of doing good for the environment! We source denim made of recycled cotton, or cotton farmed without pesticides, to create a collection of awesome accessories just for you.

3. A Game Changer. Ready to change the world with us? With our FREE Recycling, we'll gladly take back our used products and recycle it responsibly for you. We believe companies should be responsible for what they've produced.

 THE STORY: 

The story began while searching retail stores for an iPad case. We wanted a product that was functional and made of something that stood for quality. Everything in the stores were made of cheap materials and mass-produced without any character.

We wondered: What if we designed a product that was functional, stylish, AND would be good for the environment? 

MADE TO BENEFIT THE ENVIRONMENT:

 
 

WHAT IS OUR DENIM MADE OF? Our sustainably-sourced denim is made of a blend of pre-consumer industrial denim leftovers and virgin cotton (non-pesticides). When recycled denim isn't available in the market, we use denim made of certified organically grown cotton, farmed without the use of pesticides and chemicals. 

Awesome Rewards:

Our collection is designed with purpose. Each feature serves a function and is crafted for the urban adventurer.

 SUPPORTING THE LOCAL ECONOMY

WHY THE RECYCLING PROGRAM? With 13 million tons of textiles products being dumped into landfills every year, there's got to be a better way of doing things. That’s why we’ve included a FREE BuyBack Program.

HOW DOES THE RECYCLING PROGRAM WORK? 

Our products are built to last, but they're not indestructible. We've created a way to help make the recycling process easy.

The 3-step process is super simple:

1. Contact us for a pre-paid shipping label. 

2. Send us your Salvedge Denim accessory in its original packaging after its usable life is over. 

3. We help you recycle the product. It will find new life as beddings for pets, mops, insulation, or other forms of recycled products. 

The planet fist-bumps you!

**This program is currently open to U.S. backers only**

 FULFILLMENT

HOW THE FUNDS WILL BE USED: We've spent the past year making the best prototypes possible to help get Salvedge Denim up to this point. Now we need your help to get our business up and running. With your funds, we can reach production minimums and start production on these planet-saving accessories! 

Most important of all, it shows how small businesses (like us) can make a difference, and hopefully, other companies can follow in our footsteps. We believe small companies can make a BIG difference!

Help us actualize our business model and disrupt the status quo by supporting our Kickstarter campaign!

THANK YOU!
