Our first custom denim from Japan’s Kaihara Mills is a 14.5 ounce indigo denim. We took our time with this project to develop a classic denim that we could showcase in all of our fits. The denim features ultra dark indigo yarns with medium slub and a tight tension weave. The fill yarn is less pronounced than most indigo denim creating a saturated, inky look when new. Our aim was to create a fabric with a clean appearance that would yield pronounced fades over time.
The selvedge ID bears our signature antique gold ticking. Before denim was mass produced and projectile looms became the industry standard, it was customary for denim manufacturers to use signature ticking to identify their denim rolls. We decide to pay our respects to tradition and chose a custom color unique to Freenote. We matched the antique gold ticking with the thread color for our top stitching to create a unified look from waist to cuff.
