Organic Design

The manufacture of jeans is known for its substantial ecological footprint. As a historic manufacturer, ESQUAD innovates to limit this impact as much as possible at all stages of manufacturing.

50% recycled cotton

Between irrigating the cotton and washing the finished product, water consumption weighs heavily in the ecological footprint of a pair of jeans.

Our range of bio-designed motorcycle jeans are made with 50% recycled cotton.

This approach considerably reduces the balance sheet: imagine that for each pair of jeans leaving our workshop, 70 to 100 liters of water are saved.

Eco Wash+

The Eco Wash+ was specially designed by ESQUAD engineers. It combines the use of ozone and laser. The chemical detergents traditionally used in washing are replaced by ozone and laser, which are totally neutral in terms of emissions (see diagram below).

If the aesthetic result remains the same, the effect on the ecological impact of the jeans is threefold:

  • washing uses six times less water
  • Detergent consumption is reduced by 80%.
  • effluents are much less polluting and easier to treat
Air suction and transformation of oxygen (O2) into ozone (O3)

Washing Esquad jeans with Laser

Renewable energies

The ESQUAD factory uses its own biomass boiler to produce the energy needed to manufacture your bio-designed motorcycle jeans.

The boiler is fed with a co-product from the local industry, olive pits. No fossil fuel source is required.


The ESQUAD plant has an internal wastewater treatment plant.

This process recycles the effluents directly linked to the manufacturing of eco-designed jeans, returning clean water to the environment.

A considerably reduced ecological footprint

An organic ESQUAD motorcycle jean is :

  • – 65% water used
  • – 80% of detergents used
  • – 20% of fossil fuels consumed
  • Treated wastewater
