FABRIC & DETAILS

We found this fabric in downtown Los Angeles and were immediately drawn to the unique quality of the yarn dyed look of the cloth. It’s a great alternative to the standard jet black, with the white weft giving the denim an ash black look.

Garment Details: Single left hand pocket w/pen or utensil pocket, belt loops.

Conservation: By purchasing this product made from deadstock denim you are saving approximately 800 gallons of water it normally takes to produce enough cotton to make an apron like of this size. 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.
