FABRIC & DETAILS

LOT # 101216

We found this fabric in downtown Los Angeles and love the cast of Indigo it has. When we rinsed it to remove the shrinkage in the fabric, it brought out the character of the cloth. It has good structure, has a dry hand to it and wears in really well.

Garment Details: Triple needle construction, chain stitching, 6 belt loops, button fly, heavy weight pocket bags and a two tone thread color.

Conservation: By purchasing this product you are saving approximately 1850 gallons of water it takes to produce enough cotton to make a single jean. This huge amount of water is for the growing, harvesting, transporting, dyeing and finishing of the textile. You are also helping conserve enormous amounts of machine and human energy along with thousands of miles of transportation.

KAIHARA, JAPAN

Kaihara is one of the oldest and finest textile mills in the world, located in Fukuyama City, Japan. The mill started in 1893, as a manufacturing company for hand woven indigo kasuri fabrics, an ikat-like weaving technique that’s used for kimonos and wall hangings.

In 1950's they began producing denim on a larger scale and incorporated many of the traditional weaving methods, like ring spinning, to create fabric with exceptional strength and character. Kaihara also has a unique in-house rope dyeing technique not commonly used by other denim brands, allowing them to provide a unique, high quality indigo shades. 

While today Kaihara has shifted entirely to denim production, it’s that combination of old and new, heritage and innovation that makes its fabrics special.
