5.9oz Organic Japanese Slub Denim£21.00/metre
A 5.9oz Japanese organic denim with a beautifully slubby texture. A very dark inky blue. This denim will continue to soften and lighten slightly upon continual washing. As the name suggests, this denim goes very slubby once washed.
This would be suitable for many of our patterns, it would make a great Trapeze, Rugby, Francine, or Mary White dress.
This denim is produced in Okayama, Japan, an area famous for its denim mills, indigo dye and its long history of denim weaving. It is made in a city with an abundance of natural spring water, which is used during the dyeing and processing and helps create a consistent and unique level of colour in their denim.
Sustainability and protecting the environment is very important to the mill, where they follow strict environmental standards for their use of water. Making sure that any water left over from their dye house is four times purified to drinking grade; ensuring it is safe for them to return to the river where the water irrigation systems are connected to the local vegetable fields and rice paddies, and later ending up in the Setonaikai sea. The factories are also run on 10% solar energy.
