Dawson Denim from Birghton – UK started with their denim brand with vintage motoring as their inspiration. It all began with a 1957 BSA Bantam motorbike. It was this motorbike that would combine their passion for design and their love of denim, this would inspire their branding. The Dawson Denim range began with workwear aprons. These were inspired by original aprons used up until the 1960’s. They have expanded their range slowly since 2012 with jackets, jeans and bags. Take a look into their workshop where they make their handmade blue indigo goods in the short film here below.
