The Natural Indigo Kakishibu selvedge is an 11oz rope dyed Japanese selvedge denim created using a combination of natural dyes. The exterior warp yarns are dyed using natural indigo, while the interior weft yarns are dyed using persimmon (“Kaki” in Japanese). Persimmon is a small orange fruit that contains plenty of tannin. Kakishibu is the method of extracting the sour juice from unripe persimmons and fermenting the natural dye for approximately 2 years. Since ancient times dating back to the 13th century, kahishibu has been used to dye wood, fabrics and paper. Other details include contrast stitching, natural tan leather patch, white selvedge ID, silver metallic buttons and rivets. The Super Guy is a slim tapered fit; medium rise, slim thigh and taper from the knee to hem.
