James Bartle

James Bartle is the founding CEO of Outland Denim, the Australian denim brand known for their revolutionary approach to sustainability. Driven to create social change, Bartle created Outland Denim as an avenue of opportunity for women from backgrounds of modern slavery and those vulnerable to exploitation. The unique business model has been proven to provide a 'freedom dividend', benefiting not only the brand's team, but their family and community too. Since launching in Australia, Outland Denim has launched in retail powerhouses Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and David Jones, and has been worn by the likes of Meghan Markle and Leonardo DiCaprio.
