Some very exciting news this week, among other thing such as the latest drops from Vans Vault & Han Kjobenhavn, our first batch from highly coveted Japanese denim brand Momotaro has just been delivered!
Part of the Japan Blue group, one of the worlds most renonwned denim companies (Japan Blue sources fabric to the likes of Spellbound, Dior, APC & PRPS to name a few), Momotaro is a truly artisanal brand and takes extreme pride in producing some the worlds absolute finest jeans.
The Momotaro products are all hand made on vintage Union Special chain stitching machines in their own Rampuya sewing factory in the city of Kurashiki in Okayama, Japan. The process of creating these jeans is so meticulous that only about ten pairs are produced a day.
The same mentality of perfection that shows in the construction of the Momotaro jeans is reflected the denim used. Woven on vintage shuttle looms from extra long staple Zimbabwean cotton & dyed to perfection with pure indigo. It is a beautiful weave, heavy 15.7 oz & coarse with slight slubs & irregularities & a surprisingly soft hand. Designed to produce a unique, natural & vintage looking fade.
Momotaro is available now in store & will go live online shortly @ caliroots.com/c-store
