Proof that weft yarn can be just as powerful as the warp. This is the all new Japan Flame. Special denim, wearable all year, great value.
One of the levers a mill has to create character in selvedge denim is yarn. Usually, the top warp yarn has the biggest impact on the overall look of the fabric, but in this case, masterful use of the weft yarn creates beautiful visual texture. This one starts with a dark indigo warp, a lighter 11oz weight and a nicely starched surface. All great raw denim starting points. The use of a slubby weft yarn creates a beautiful tapestry of separation and irregularity in the fabric surface that allows the white weft to prominently show through. The randomness of the show through creates a flame-like visual that's wonderfully rare and different. It brightens up the overall shade of the denim as well. Another example of why Japan is considered one of the finest raw denim producers in the world.
