Benzak Denim Developers is an Amsterdam based denim brand, founded by Lennaert Nijgh, aka Benzak. Out of the passion for jeans and inspired by the unique fading capabilities of denim, BDD was born. Rather than seasonal collections, BDD develops timeless pieces that can go anytime, anywhere. By wear and wash the denim of your pair will develop it’s personal character. No single pair will be the same. Be the developer of your denim and become part of the world of Benzak. The BDD range also contains leather products, mixed with the BDD signature denim, to create the best of both worlds. The leather used is vegetable tanned and evolves into a highly unique and personal product by wear, just like the denim. All the denims are made in Japan.

To make the next steps for the BDD brand Lennaert opened a crowdfunding page to realise his dreams. You can check the video below where he tells you more about this. But first take a look at the different ageing stages from the BBD-710 jeans.
