Rest Denim is an independent denim brand started in London. The brand is entirely run by one man Toby Owen. Toby started Rest Denim out of a love for raw denim. His items are made with the highest quality selvedge denim and canvas, most is woven in Japan, but also by Cone Mills in the U.S.A. Most of his hardware is made from solid brass or copper, made in Japan and the U.K. One of my favo’s is his denim apron. The apron pictured is made from unsanforized green selvedge denim. This is extremely slubby and irregular, and fades to a stunning patina with use. Rest arcuates and ‘peekaboo’ selvedge detail showing next to the rivet on the breast pocket. Check out the work of this craftsman Toby Owen!
