Two Japanese Denim Fabrics

The base of the collaboration is Phi. Denim’s jeans which is made with Japanese fabric, woven on a shuttle loom in Okayama, Japan. This selvedge fabric is the translation of Phi. Denim’s Franco-Japanese signature timeless style. On the backside of the jeans, they added a special and unique created typical Sashikodenim pocket. The Sashiko denim stitching is done stitch for stitch, by the hand of course. The fabric of this pocket is a 16oz fabric from the Collect mills, also from Japan.

The traditional Sashiko stitches are a homage to the meditative Japanese running stitch. On this collab jeans, Pey, Mr. Sashikodenim, used his signature cross stitch pattern.

Two Extra Special With Each Jeans

These two Japanese fabrics blend perfectly together on this pair. The slow-made Sashiko pocket is stitched and bonded on the denim with laser-cut black cotton tape. Artisanal techniques and modern technologies are coming together in this collaboration pair. When buying this pair it will be delivered with two extra specials;

• A ‘denim repair’ voucher from the Sashikodenim workshop.
