Made in Norway

Made from a 14 Oz Dry Black Selvage denim from the Japanese fabric mill, Kurabo. This particular denim features a 3x1 twill weave with both warp and weft dyed in a black sulphur. The yarns are dyed using a method called rope dye whereas the yarns are dipped in such short intervalls that prevents the black colour from fully penetrating the white core of the cotton yarns. With friction and wear as the black colour tears off the surface of the fabric, the un-dyed core of the yarn will appear, slowly leaving a beautiful white contrast fading to the surface, instead of become a dull grey. A definite essential for any denim enthusiast. 

This garment is mostly made with a single needle lockstitch construction and is designed, cut, send and finished by only four hands, all under the very same roof in Trondheim, Norway.

- 14 Oz rope dye selvage denim from Kurabo, Japan.
