Cone Denim White Oak Fabric

For the Tubman Railman, jacket Denim Design Lab used a fabric from the legendary Cone Denim White Oak mill from Greensboro, also known as Jeansboro in North Carolina. The plant that unfortunately closed their doors, but luckily this item is made of the fabric so you can still own a piece of denim history. The fabric is a non-selvedge 13oz right-hand twill fabric, 100% cotton. It has a beautiful structure with different levels of indigo.

The jacket has been soaked once and hung dry in the sun to stop the ‘indigo bleeding’. So, ready to wear!
