A friend of mine out in the Far East pointed me to a new denim brand, called Washi, which was created by a real expert in the denim making world- and I’ll leave it at that. Here is some more detailed information from their website: “All Washi jeans are made in Japan using the finest selvage fabric woven on 1960′s looms and other materials from Japan. We utilise Japanese core spun thread with a cotton outer that changes with washing and time and use renowned Union Special machines… Each jean is dry processed by specialist finishers in our laundry in Japan. These artisans can make over 20 different treatments and washes to achieve the unique finished effect of each jean”
Whilst that is surely interesting, I’ll take my buddy’s word that these jeans are beyond incredible.
