A First Look at Fabrics

After examining lots of samples, we’re excited to share that we’ve made our denim selection. We’ve chosen a beautiful 11-ounce rope-dyed denim from Kurabo Mills in Kurashiki, Okayama. Founded in 1888, Kurabo entered the denim world in 1970 when it made a big splash with its KD-8 Kurabo denim, marketed as the first denim ever made in Japan. This fabric is 98 percent cotton and 2 percent stretch, with plenty of raw-denim substance, a touch of stretchiness for comfort, and the potential for out-of-this-world fades. It boasts a light slub and an authentic vintage feel. Kurabo calls its stretch technology “Recovery yarn with S-Cube” because it provides full recovery—meaning the jeans will keep their shape all day long, wear after wear, with no bagginess in the knees or seat.
