Add Some Japanese Culture To Your Denim Collection With The Recycled Kimono Weft Selvedge
We're excited to introduce you to a new pair of jeans: the Recycled Kimono Weft Selvedge. Not only is this denim environmentally friendly, but it also has a unique and interesting backstory.
The Recycled Kimono Weft Selvedge is made using an innovative method of recycling silk Japanese kimonos. The kimonos are chopped up and the silk fibers are mixed with cotton to create a new yarn, which is then woven into denim fabric on vintage shuttle looms in Okayama, Japan. This process creates white spots, or "neps," throughout the fabric. Some of these neps are colored, which are remnants of the kimono fabrics used in the recycling process. This gives the denim a one-of-a-kind look that you won't find anywhere else.
In addition to its ecofriendly origins, the Recycled Kimono Weft Selvedge has a classic raw, rigid texture and is finished with contrast stitching, a classic redline selvedge ID, a vegan apple leather patch, and silver metallic buttons and rivets. It is cut, sewn, and built in Canada, supporting local craftsmanship.
Sustainability is becoming increasingly important to consumers, and the Recycled Kimono Weft Selvedge is a great example of how we can innovate and create products that are both stylish and environmentally conscious. By recycling silk kimonos and using ecofriendly materials, these jeans not only reduce waste, but also offer a unique and interesting story that sets them apart from other denim options. Plus, it allows us to combine aspects of Japanese culture into one denim, blending Japanese kimonos with Japanese denim.
Overall, the Recycled Kimono Weft Selvedge is a truly special and innovative denim option that we think you'll love. It's ecofriendly, unique, and has the added bonus of creating a personalized wear pattern as you break it in. Give it a try and see what kind of fade and wear pattern you end up with!
