Today we're giving you access to a rare selvedge find from Cone Mills. It's one we've never run before. Double rainbow ID's finish a quintessentially classic raw selvedge denim. Meet the Cone Mills Double Rainbow.
Cone's White Oak plant in Greensboro, NC was famous. Part of that mystique what that the selvedge there was woven on vintage Draper shuttle looms. These old-world looms also came with drawbacks. Keeping them running well and producing high-quality fabric was a huge challenge. As a way to ensure the selvedge line would continue as part of the Cone family, more modern selvedge looms were tested in Cone's production facility in Mexico. Now some of these styles are trickling out in deadstock form. We wanted to test them out before offering them up to you. Wearing them around confirms it's a quality, classic product. A pure indigo warp is a brighter than usual. The crisp white weft lends the classic look we want in core raw denim. A 12.5 ounce weight with plenty of starch make these wearable and primed for great fades. This is just a daily workhorse denim. Finally, the selvedge ID is extra special. Double rainbow ID's. One side of the fabric gets red-orange-yellow, the other emerald, blue, purple.
