A tapered fit with a higher rise, roomy thighs, and tapered legs. We have developed a black version of our retro fabric and we are quite excited about it. A super dense yarn meets ultra low tension weaving. The fabric has a nice amount of loom-shatter, a crisp surface, and a stunning deep black colour. We used a combination of Texas and Supima cotton that guarantees a very durable yarn yet a soft feel. We have experimented quite extensively with the cotton ratio for this one. This cotton combo holds the dye better which results in a deeper black. The stitching for this one is quite special: A variety of contrasting blue threads which really stand out.
A regular straight fit with some room for knees and ankles. The classic style is perfect for those who want a casual look. Made from ID fabric, at 15oz and thanks to its loose weave, the denim is perfect for all seasons, and it is also our fastest fading fabric. The long stabled Texas cotton provides durability, yet is comfortable to wear. The slub yarn also adds the many irregularities this fabric is known for. The slubby knots on the surface will reveal their white core the earliest so you can enjoy the process even after minimal wear. The parts of the fabric we deem good enough to use for our denim rivals the best fabrics in the industry and delights our customers for both its intense texture and its great fading potential.
A tapered fit with a higher rise, roomy thighs, and tapered legs. Our ARASHI fabric is our very first AIZOME fabric. It is very slubby and textured. It is a traditional Japanese dyeing method that is unrivalled. The slub yarn is individually selected and dipped in natural indigo by hand. The colour is a thing of beauty, a very light, yet deep blue. It is our most limited fabric as the production is slow and there are only a handful of Japanese craftsmen able to dye the fabric. No other denim requires this much manual labour. The yarns are then woven with ultra-low tension to pronounce the texture even more. At 18oz, this is definitely on the heavier side of things. The structure reminded us of a rising tempest, therefore we named it ARASHI which translated means storm. Only 80 pieces were ever produced worldwide.
A tapered fit with roomy thighs and tapered legs. Made from Ten (天) fabric, the denim stands for knotty and spotty, but also for the sky, which sums the characteristics of this slubby lightweight fabric perfectly. At 12.5oz, this super low tension fabric is extremely breathable without compromising on texture usually only to be found on denim a lot heavier. The combination of Texas cotton and Pima cotton for the warp and South American (Peru) cotton for the weft allow for some of the most irregular and textured denim that we have ever made. The density of the weft is a lot higher than the warp yarn which resulted in all the slub and hairiness we could hope for. Another important aspect of this fabric is the dye. While the warp yarn is rope-dyed in pure indigo, the horizontal threads of the weft demonstrate a light beige with the cheese dyeing method.
A tapered fit with roomy thighs and tapered leg. Our YURAI fabric is a sight to behold. After developing a rope-dying method for our natural indigo fabric, which results in rich and intense shades of blue and contrasts which makes it very unique, we wanted to take things further. We created a cobalt blue weft with natural indigo. We created this rich blue by dipping the yarn into natural indigo with shorter exposures to oxygen which results in a lighter blue. The colour reminds us of the Tanuki blue that runs through all of our products: YURAI means source. The denim is rich in slub and fuzziness on the surface and thanks to the loose weave, the cobalt blue peaks through the surface which adds depths to the denim. The electric blue fades will be very unique. The banana and light beige stitching adds just the right amount of contrast to this fabric.
A tapered fit with roomy thighs, and tapered legs. Developing a rope-dying method for natural indigo, which results in rich and intense shades of blue, this fabric does allow for great fades and contrasts which makes it very unique. This fabric is also much more affordable without compromising on the beauty of the natural indigo blue. Rope-dyed by the only mill in Japan able to do this type of natural indigo fabric, and used special organic natural indigo from India that cannot be found anywhere else in the Japanese denim industry. This fabric is exclusive in many ways. Made with the low-tension weave, the denim is rich in slub and fuzziness on the surface to rival the beautiful blue of natural indigo.
