”Buy yourself a pair of raw selvedge denim with 11-24oz. Wear it as much as you can but don’t wash it for at least 6 months. Be happy with a one of a kind pair of jeans that has naturally faded only by wearing.” Matthias Höppner
Denim is a sturdy cotton twill textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces the familiar diagonal ribbing of the denim that distinguishes it from cotton duck.
It is a characteristic of any indigo denim that only the warp threads are dyed, whereas the weft threads remain plain white. As a result of the warp-faced twill weaving, one side of the textile then shows the blue warp threads and the other side shows the white weft threads. This is why blue jeans are white on the inside. This type of dyeing also creates denim’s fading characteristics, which are unique compared to every other textile.
Good jeans is like a blue diamond!
To complement all these inspirations on denim, we have selected a beautiful documentary titled ”The History of Blue Jeans” by junior Greg.
