Double felled seams >

Double felled seams for strength and comfort. A flat-felled seam is an overlapping seam that’s sewn flat. Placing one edge inside a folded edge of fabric, the fold is then stitched down to create a flat surface.

Extremely durable and sturdy, less threads are exposed to the wearer, leading to less fraying. Aside from that, flat-felled seams tend to look much cleaner

Distressed, damaged and artisanal repairs

The finish is achieved by series of processes, the first is a stone wash treatment to provide the desired overall vintage base colour. Then entirely by hand using a variety of specialist artisanal technics the jeans are distressed, damaged and repaired, and then finally given a colour spot tinting and over-dye treatment to complete the authentic looking ‘vintage’ aesthetic.

Japanese selvedge denim

Japanese selvedge denim

Initially known as ‘self-edge’, the selvedge is the narrow, tightly woven band on both edges of the denim fabric. A selvedge end prevents the edge of the denim from unravelling and shows a clean, finished look.

Old shuttle looms produce denim where selvedges are closed.  Alternatively, on larger modern weaving machines, the weft yarn is cut on every pick, resulting in a fringed selvedge.
