During the upcoming Selvedge Run summer edition they will screen the Weaving Shibusa film. The Weaving Shibua film is made by Devin Leisher, Erik Motta, and Mehdi Ahmadi. Weaving Shibusa tells a story of Japanese craftsmanship and dedication, shown through their love and fascination of denim. The documentary gives unprecedented access to the mysterious and storied industry of Japanese denim, told by the only people who can; world-renowned vintage denim experts, the highly regarded ‘Osaka 5’, responsible for Japan’s denim revival in the early ’90’s, as well as passionate innovators whose work has made Japanese denim synonymous with the highest quality possible.

After the screening there will be a Q&A session hosted by the film’s executive producer Kiya Babzani from Self Edge, USA, who is visiting Berlin especially for the occasion. Other event guests include exhibitors at Selvedge Run and featured in the documentary: Mikiharu Tsujita (Fullcount), Atsu Tagaya (Stevenson Overall Co.), Hajime Inoue (TCB Jeans), Katsu Manabe (Japan blue jeans, Momotaro) and Giles Padmore (Iron Heart).
