You will also learn how Mr. Manabe created in 2010 a 600-meter long ‘Jeans Street’ in the Kojima town, known as the birthplace of Japanese denim. During the years more than 40 denim brands opened the doors of their stores.
Also, in the docu, you will see how they produce their jeans. He’s showing how he’s dyeing the cotton threads in indigo-dye vats to achieve the right color. This is part of their flagship pair of Momotaro jeans. The fabric of this pair is woven on an authentic wooden shuttle loom. It takes around one week to weave material for just one pair. The workshop produces only four pairs of these special ‘Gold Label’ a month.
