Description

The legendary Kuroki Mills, nestled in Ibara City, Okayama, has been milling some of the finest denim on the planet for over 70 years, utilizing the soft, natural water from the region, resulting in what they refer to as a “clear blue sky” hue from their indigo dying process. This welterweight denim is a fresh venture for them, culminating out of a will to create lightweight selvage that yields the rich, contrasty fades of traditional 15oz denim. The result? An artisanal, long-lasting jean that’s light enough for year-round wear. Made in the USA with our standard obsession for detail and tailored to perfection—we can’t wait to see how yours look five years down the line.

Material

Milled on traditional shuttle looms and indigo dyed with natural soft water from the Ibara City region on Okayama, this Kuroki Welterweight Slub is engineered to hold up to years of hard wear, and offer some incredible fades in the process. Close inspection will reveal unique irregularities in the warp and weft (achieved with a slower looming process), resulting in a nuanced slub texture that will develop incredible character with every wear. Finished with our signature organic cotton map print pocketing and indestructible YKK copper hardware.
