We realise that the denim industry is awash with an array of choices, but we’re hoping our story will resonate with more than a few individuals wanting to use their purchasing power to change the world.

So perhaps an introduction is in order. With five years of perfecting our premium denim jeans and changing young girls’ lives in Cambodia, Outland Denim is now stepping into the commercial marketplace. 

We realise that the denim industry is awash with an array of choices, but we’re hoping our story will resonate with more than a few individuals wanting to use their purchasing power to change the world.

With the vision to produce high quality jeans and provide a better quality of life for young women escaping the sex industry in Cambodia, we are about the craftsmanship as well as the cause.  

Over the years we've had the chance to hone our skills as designers and producers through trial and error with some highs and lows, and a lot of hard work. Now our team of girls have some serious skills and we have developed a sustainable employment model proven to break the cycle of human trafficking and exploitation.  

When you buy a pair of Outland Denim jeans, you can be sure that our profits are reinvested into further extending our vision of creating an ethically manufactured denim jean while empowering young women who have been rescued form exploitation. And, of course, you'll also be receiving our premium denim jeans. Sounds like a win-win to us. 

Now it’s over to you. Chime in on our social media accounts or send us an email via contact@outlanddenim.com
