Tia Japan Black
Made in Portugal
The Japan Black Comfort. Made from a 10,6 Oz black comfort wideloom denim woven at the renowned Japanese fabric mill, Kuroki. This particular fabric have been made with a premium black sulphur dye that keep the dark shade longer than most fabrics in the same segment. While all black denim loose colour, this particular denim fades in contrast after wear. 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.
All black denim will loose its colour. Some transform into a dull grey version of itself, but this particular denim, fades in contrast giving more and more life, resulting in a denim that only get more beautiful with age.
Another small detail. The surface of this particular denim has been an anti-dust treatment, preventing lint from attaching to the surface of the fabric.

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.
