The new Kogare Kakishibu is an Unsanforized 14.5oz short slub Japanese selvedge denim with indigo dyed warp and Kakishibu dyed weft. Kakishubu dying is a traditional Japanese dye method which utilizes “Kaki” (the Japanese word for persimmon) a small orange fruit that contains a great deal of tannins, making them ideal for natural dyes. This dye method produces an incredible range of orange and brown tones, and for this denim a deep brown dubbed “Kogare” (Japanese for burnt) was used to make up the interior weft yarns. On the surface of the fabric the Kogare color peeks though, giving the denim a warm earthy tone. The fabric has a subtle unevenness due to the use of uneven sized slub yarns and slow weaving techniques. The denim is finished with a distinctive white ear selvedge ID with an orange running stitch embroidery.
Note: While the fabric is Unsanforized the jeans themselves have gone though a Tenpi treatment. This is a soak and dry process that removes the shrinkage from the fabric, while preserving the natural hairiness and textured feel characteristic to Unsanforized denim.
