Amsterdam-based non-profit Denim City specialises in improving the denim industry, and employing Syrian refugees with tailoring backgrounds.

On our minds is Denim City, an Amsterdam-based non-profit specialising in improving ethical and environmental conditions in the denim industry, and their latest stir to employ Syrian refugees new in the country with backgrounds in tailoring. The DC manager Harm Magis means that with Syria’s past as a major cotton exporter, there are still a large amount of skilled Syrian garment workers around, some of which are young people with denim experience freshly arrived in The Netherlands – providing a pool of potential workforce. The workshop, which is also occupied by students of Jean School (the world’s first dedicated denim school) and professionals on training courses – hope to produce garments for brands and eventually also for their own Denim City label.
