Our Denim –
Made in Italy

Here in Hamburg, we generally shy away from overstatements. But even we can objectively say that partners don’t come any better than our Italian collaborators, who have been with us for years: three long-established companies that practice their craft with modern expertise, work sustainably and care about their staff and the environment. Our jeans wouldn’t be the best without our close cooperation and collective know-how.

Made in Italy –
The Closed Denim Triangle

Candiani
Weaving Mill

Based near Milan, Candiani provides most of the fabric used for our jeans. Now into its fourth generation, the mill has been run by the same family since 1938 and employs 650 workers from the local region. With their mix of specialist knowledge and patented technologies, Candiani was the business that first made designer denim possible.

„People also call it the greenest mill in the blue world.”
Gordon Giers

The Facts

  • Any waste thread created during the production process is recycled.
  • 35 percent of the cotton used comes from partners in the Better Cotton Initiative.
  • Candiani has been awarded the Global Organic Textile Standard and the Global Recycle Standard.

Sewing Manufacturer
Paul S.P.A.

Our first Pedal Pushers were sewn by Paul all the way back in the 1980s. The processing of each of our jeans’ components is overseen by one of the 70 experts working at this family business near Ancona. The company has been run by Paolo Galassi, who took over the reins from his father, and Mario Ceccarelli for almost 30 years. They nurture their trade by investing in creativity and sustainability.

Our Joint
Inventions

X-pockets:
Angled at 33° to allow for easier access to the front pocket. Not only are they our trademark, they also embody the Closed philosophy, defined for the brand years ago by our founder François Girbaud: form follows function.

Sacrum cut:
A small, clever adjustment expertly made to the rear part of the jeans in line with the sacrum. Ensures a perfect, comfortable fit.

Fly label:
Positioned on the front of the fly. Hand sewn by an expert. Another hallmark of Closed jeans.

Triple stitching:
Our renowned triple stitch for extra style and stability. Developed by François Girbaud. A trademark feature of certain jeans, like our Pedal Pusher.

Everest
Laundry

Ever since Closed founder François Girbaud developed the stonewash technique in the 1980s, our brand has been synonymous with special washes and used effects. The Everest laundry has been helping us achieve these looks since 2007. Based in the small town of Piombino Dese, they apply the most innovative and ecological finishing techniques.

The Facts

  • All our used look jeans are processed by hand. Using brushes, sandpaper and grinders requires specialist knowledge and years of training.
  • Eco-friendly treatments are carried out using a laser.
  • Dyeing processes using high-pressure jets reduce the time required by 20 percent and water usage by 30 percent.
  • Every day 1,200 cubic metres of water are recycled in the company’s own wastewater treatment plant.

Key Invention

  • Sandpaper and grinders: used to manually create wear marks. The crucial skill: making sure all jeans look exactly the same at the end.
  • Laser: adds fade to denim without washing or bleaching. This machine can be used to create an array of blues.
  • Ozone washing: during this process, jeans are treated with ozone gas (O3), a powerful oxidant – without additional chemicals and using a minimal amount of water.
