Japan Blue x Tenue de Nîmes Côte d'Ivoire Cotton 'Indigo x Indigo’ Jeans
Welcome to the second part of our special Tenue de Nîmes collaboration today with one of Japan’s most influential denim brands: Japan Blue. This special denim collection consists of three exclusive Japanse slim-fit denims: Two 'dry' denims and one washed jean. This unwashed garment is made out of a beautiful double indigo fabric (both warp and weft are dyed in indigo). The jeans have a special co-branded patch and are limited to 60 pieces. Also check out the other two jeans we made with Japan Blue here
General information about the project:
The company’s founder Mr. Manabe proposed to do a special partnership with Tenue de Nîmes and Japan Blue Co Ltd. to introduce the world to one of his latest denim achievements: Côte d'Ivoire Cotton Jeans. Japan Blue started investigating this type of African cotton while on a journey to uncover the origin of jeans. The Japanese denim experts were looking for a type of cotton that could match the sort that was used when production of denim first took off, as far back as the 19th century. Côte d’Ivoire cotton is hand-picked, minimising any damage in the process. Garments made with this cotton are comfortable to wear and the fabric will show a magnificent, natural color fading over time.
