Good things happen when you combine classic, raw Japanese selvedge denim and pigment dye. Today we're going to show you just how great that combination is. Meet the Japan Cobalt Pigment Dye Selvedge.
When you first get into raw selvedge denim you go classic. Japan produces some of the best classic raw selvedge denim in the world. They respect the traditions of this fabric like no other country. That is exactly how each of these styles starts out. Both are timelessly constructed with a dark indigo warp and crisp white weft. Add in a nice amount of starch and a wearable, yet solid 12 ounce weight and you have the quintessential raw denim. But the mill decided to take one more huge step with this fabric. They dip it in a bath of pigment dye and this denim is instantly transformed into something totally unique and beautiful.
The Cobalt version gets a dip in a bright blue bath, transforming what was a dark indigo denim into a beautifully vivid blue. The surface is incredibly inky and the white weft gets toned down on the surface. This should age beautifully as both the pigment dye on top and indigo dye underneath wear-in. You get a beautiful start with what's sure to be an incredible finish.
