Two Different Repair Techniques

While Dutch Denim Repair is specialized in repairing jeans with an authentic Singer 47W70 industrial darning machine, Sashikodenim is using the traditional Sashiko technique from Japan. They both support the reuse and repair philosophy to extend the lifetime of your favorite pair of jeans, better said as ‘repair, don’t replace!’.

The Details Of The Bag

The Repair Bag is made from a 16oz. heavy slub Japanese selvedge denim from the Kuroki Mills. It has a two side hand-drawn print to highlight both repair artists. The bag shows a handstitched signature Sashikodenim patch, every patch is different as it’s done by hand. It features a unique zipper construction, YKK zipper with selvedge construction, inside pocket with (unique one of ten) laser engraved veg tanned leather patch.

The bag is constructed with an indigo-dyed yarn that will fade over time. For the straps, they used vegetable-tanned leather straps, riveted for extra durability. The bag is lined with a navy cotton fabric, and measure 55 x 35 x 12 cm.
