The Mairaa Jeans are our ethically made, cropped mom fit jeans from Armed Angels. They have a 90s style, flattering fit and are not too tight which makes them some of our comfiest sustainable jeans! But, there are even more reasons why we love them. We are going to tell you what makes the Mairaa jeans so special.
What makes the Mairaa Jeans special?
Mairaa jeans are not just comfortable and stylish. They are also extremely sustainable, meaning that they are a staple for your capsule wardrobe. The jeans are made from 100% organic cotton which is fairly traded. This means that its cultivation is controlled with a regulated minimum price. Plus, the cotton is farmed without toxic pesticides and with a low water consumption which makes the growing process environmentally friendly. Compared to conventional fibre Mairaa jeans use 91% less water and 61% less energy, meaning that when you buy these jeans you decide on a conscious form of consumption. We want you to feel good about your purchase.
Also, every time someone buys a pair of sustainable Mairaa jeans they support the Armed Angels Organic Farmers Association, which helps 366 small farmers from India to convert to organic cotton. These ethical jeans were made in in Ras Jebel, Tunesien by Denim Authority, and are PETA approved vegan. Armed Angels know the importance of supply chains in the fashion industry so they ensure that every garment can be traced back to their partners to ensure transparency as a brand.

How do I care for my Mairaa Jeans?
Armed Angels have a guide on their website telling you how to repair old jeans so that you can repurpose your old clothes and help them to live for longer. This is a more ethical way of wearing clothes that means that you buy less and spend less.
We recommend that you wash your ethically made Mairaa jeans on a 30° mild wash, and then iron them at a moderate temperature. But do not bleach, tumble dry or dry clean, to prevent shrinkage and make them last longer. Armed Angels believe that you should wash your jeans less as it is not unhygienic and relieves both the laundry basket and your wallet!

Currently, we stock Mairaa jeans in a range of different colours and shades. The dark colours that we sell are Black ,Deep Ink, and Washed Down Black. These darker colours are staples for your sustainable wardrobe as they can be worn throughout the year in every season. Plus, dark coloured jeans can easily be dressed up with a nice top/blouse like the 100% Sustainable Viscose Ceylaan Shirt in Off White and high heels for an evening look.
We also have Mairaa jeans in lighter colours including Undyed Cream, Stone Wash and Faded Blue. These colours are perfect for Spring/Summer as they brighten up any look and so compliment the warmer weather. Pair them with a T-Shirt or vest top like the Beaa Vest Top in Kinoko blush pink for a casual, Summer look. Plus, the lighter colours still look great with jumpers in the Winter too!
How do I style my Mairaa jeans?
Ethically made Mairaa jeans have a loose fit and 90’s vibe which means that they can work with a range of different tops. Plus, they have 5 pockets which make them practical for everyday wear too!
With the warmer weather at the moment we love styling Mairaa jeans with Taraa Color Strokes Short Sleeved Top in Off White and Organic Cotton Rancho V2 Unisex Trainers in All White for a colourful and comfortable Spring look.
But, on colder days we also love to pair them with the Organic Cotton Olessyaa Fraagments Jumper In Kinoko or Nuriellaa Knitted Jumper in Foggy Blue for a cozy, casual outfit.
