What the Hell is Twaron?

It's one of the most important aspects of our new denim we are making. Twaron is a synthetic fiber with properties extremely similar to those of Kevlar. The main difference being the fiber is milled by a Japanese firm and not by Dupont.

To be honest, we had no idea what Twaron was either. We are just lucky that Cone Denim has a San Francisco office, and the two friendly gentleman who run the office are always excited to show us what new and exciting developments Cone has to offer.

This Thursday we are going to be releasing an moto jean in our double knee chore pant style created from a special Cone 12.5 oz. Twaron denim with a touch of stretch. In milling this denim, Twaron is twisted with both nylon and cotton yarns in creating the warp – the outward facing side of the fabric.

Technical jargon aside, you’d probably like to know what that really means. Well, Cone has a fancy machine that rubs development fabrics with abrasive carbon paper all day long. In testing this fabric, they ended up shutting the machine off after a week because seven days of continuous testing did not yield any tearing or wearing through of the fabric.

The benefits off all this technology are a breathable and soft, yes soft, lightweight denim that is more abrasion resistant than 26 ounce denim and easier to move in than the jeans you are wearing right now. While you will be glad to own ‘em let's just hope you never get to test ‘em. Lastly, they'll fade just like your favorite pair of raw blues as you wear them.
