We got our hands on the last production lot of one of the rarest selvedge denims we've found to date. This one is made from 100% linen, wrapped in a classic denim construction. It's the Pure Linen Indigo Selvedge from Japan.
Note: We recommend sizing up one as this is a very densely woven fabric.
This selvedge is truly a new wearing experience. Linen is what does it. Finding a 100% linen denim is incredibly rare and much more so in a vintage selvedge composition. It's a very costly ingredient. One of our favorite mills from Japan has been in development on this style for a while and they nailed it. On the surface it looks like a tremendously raw selvedge denim. The slightly grey casted indigo warp is crossed with a crisp white weft resulting in a bright, slightly metallic finish. The weave is slightly open, adding to the weft show through. There's a nice slubiness running throughout that layers in additional character. The moment you pick up this pair of denim you can feel something is different. The linen gives it a flowing drape that's unlike anything else we've tried. Putting this pair on is a totally new denim experience. It's airy and breathable. The 10.5 ounce weight gives it enough heft while a slightly crisp feel reminds you this is raw denim. It conforms to your body beautifully even on day one. We absolutely can't wait to see how this style wears in, and it has all the ingredients to be firmly in your rotation all year long. Another example of why Japan is the true leader of artistically crafted, vintage selvedge denim.
