Raleigh Denim Workshop, 2007–present

This is a Project. It was founded by Victor Lytvinenko and Sarah Yarborough. It is dated 2007–present.

Raleigh Denim Workshop represents a new way forward for smaller-scale manufacturing that is socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable. Founders Victor Lytvinenko and Sarah Yarborough’s ethos—to embrace quality before quantity and the humanness inherent in that idea—is embodied in their approach, textile choices, and design details. They design and make limited-edition, American-crafted denim jeans in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, using vintage sewing machines, and they established a North Carolina–based supply chain for certified organic cotton to make jeans with the smallest possible carbon footprint.
