We began development of the Kaihara Mills denim roughly two years ago with the aim to develop a classic custom denim that we could showcase in all of our fits. We started with ultra dark indigo yarns with light slub and tighter tension weave. The fill yarn is less pronounced compared to our current denim offering. We were looking for quicker and more pronounced fades.
The tighter weave enables a faster chipping process of the indigo. The selvedge ID has our signature antique gold ticking. As our predecessors in the past used ticking to identify their denim rolls, we used the same train of thought with a custom color unique to Freenote. The antique gold ticking also matches the same thread color for our top stitching.
