Isla Japan Black
Made in Portugal
Introducing our new jeans model Isla, featuring a straight, relaxed leg and a mid-rise waist - a modern and endurable classic. Isla is constructed with a straighter waist from the hips up to the waistband, making it a good fit for persons with a straighter build.
Made from a 13 Oz 100% cotton, black wideloom denim woven by the renowned Japanese fabric mill, Kuroki. While all black denim will loose colour eventually, this particular denim fades in contrast after wear, evolving a beautiful personal pattern. This is due a special technique called rope dye, whereas the yarns are dipped in short intervals between oxidation. This prevents the colour from completely penetrating the core of the fibres, leaving it fresh, natural and untouched. When the layers of black colour wears off the surface of the yarns, the natural coloured cotton core will appear, leaving a contrast fade throughout the jeans.
Model is 178 cm and wears a size 26/34.
Made in a one-wash finish to increase softness of touch.
Available sizes are 24-33 in 32” inseam and 26-34 in 34” inseam.

Got stains on your garment? There are a few little hacks for making the most of a piece of clothing that’s damaged for good. Vinegar and baking soda are good to add to the washing machine to boost a load, or to use diluted with water as a pre-soak before putting the garment in the washer. For oil and make-up – dish soap is super effective for getting stains out of fabrics of every colour. If it is beyond fixable, stained tees and tank tops can always be used for layering underneath sweaters in the winter, stained jeans can be turned into cut-off shorts, and stained dresses can be layered with a scarf or a sweater.
