Today represents one of the most fun parts of the unique way we design and make products at GUSTIN. We get to find some of the most unusual and beautiful fabrics and let you decide what we make. We scored a first - a rare indigo dyed ripstop canvas and we'll make our classic chinos from it.
We start with fabric. Rugged construction meets vintage dye. The base is a solid, 9 ounce ripstop canvas. Not just any ripstop though, a 100% cotton version. This is much more unusual for a ripstop, which tends to be nylon. Ripstop brings a enhanced level of toughness to fabric. It is designed to resist tearing by incorporating reinforced threads into the weave in a grid pattern. Making already rare style even more exclusive is the use of indigo dye. It's a perfect match for this fabric as the ripstop grid presents raised channels which are first to have the indigo dye rub off from. The transformation through wear is very special as you can see from the photos.
