Four Main Characteristics of WA101

Uses Okayama Selvedge Denim, a denim used by the world’s leading brands

Okayama cotton weaving has been around since the Edo Period. This means that the denim produced is made with the benefit of many years of experience and skills that have been passed down. The denim is produced in a way that doesn’t lend itself to mass production, using shuttle looms, which uses less tension, which means that the surface of the fabric is not always smooth and is uneven, which in regards to denim is a luxurious feel, and is used by many leading Western brands.

Denim that is woven on shuttle looms is known as selvedge denim, and when it has a red thread running along the edge of the denim to stop fraying, it is redline selvedge.
The reason that Selvedge Denim is high quality and expensive is mainly due to the time that goes into making it. The shuttle loom works at a much slower speed, and in order to make one sheet of denim, it takes more than 5 times than it would take to make shuttleless denim. As well as this, in recent years, shuttleless looms have progressed even further, meaning that computers can run the machines without problem, while with shuttle looms, highly skilled workers are needed to make sure that the looms run smoothly, and make a clean weave. The shuttleless looms can weave denim at about 150cm width, while shuttle looms are constricted to about 80cm, so shuttleless looms can make twice as much fabric in one swoop. That combined with the time it takes to actually weave the fabric means that it is a costly product, and contributes to its price.

The Wa-Denim jeans uses this Okayama Selvedge denim, combining it with polyurethane to help the material stretch better, meaning that it is authentic selvedge denim with superior comfort!

  

 

 

World-Class Traditional Japanese Crafts
Kyoto Nishijin-Ori

Nishijin-Ori is a world-class silk fabric used mainly for Kimono Obi, and is one of Japan's representative silk fabrics. Nishijin-Ori is a traditional Japanese craft with a 1,200-year history, and is a yarn-dyed patterned fabric that uses colored threads to weave patterns.

The essence of Nishijin-Ori is said to be "Expressing the world of painting through textiles. " Compared to textiles from other regions, Nishijin-Ori has an overwhelmingly large number of colors, and because of its gorgeousness, it was used not only as KIMONO fabric but also for many decorative items for the nobility in the Heian period (794-1185).



We created our original Shippo-mon patterns to retain the glamour of Nishijin-Ori without being overly flashy, so our jeans can be worn with a jacket even in a business setting. The Nishijin-Ori used for Wa-Denim is fully original one, carefully finished by skilled craftsmen in the Nishijin district of Kyoto.

  

 

The Shippo-mon pattern, a traditional Japanese pattern that links circles endlessly

The shippo-mon which is written as 七宝紋 in Japanese, is a long used pattern that features overlapping and intertwined circles. It is said that the pattern is unending spreading in all four directions. It also refers to the Buddhist 7 (七 in Japanese) treasures (宝 in Japanese), gold, silver lapis lazuli, quartz, coral, agate, and giant clam shell.

Another interpretation of the design is that of fate, with all the circles connected, which is said to be a good omen of happiness, harmony, and good connections between others. It is seen by others to remind others of the value of the connection between others and that they have the same value as the previously mentioned seven treasures.

For this pair of jeans, we adopted the shippo-mon pattern, hoping that they help to bring good new connections whenever you're wearing them.

 

A three-dimensional cut that helps to give comfort while also contouring to the legs perfectly!

The designers of the Okayama denim who was very active in NYC and London around 10 years ago have made a pattern that makes the jeans conform to the body while also giving a comfortable fit. As well as this, the jeans have been calculated down to the smallest detail, with the shape and size of the back pocket, the position and thickness of the stitch, and so on to make sure that the jeans are super comfortable to wear, while also looking stylish.

Nishijin-Ori is attached to the coin pocket on the front side and inside the back-pockets on the back side. Back-pockets are foldable to expose and to hide Nishijin-Ori.
We think that the jeans can be worn with most tops and shirts while looking good but also having a unique character to them!

 

Various scenarios we envisage you wearing our jeans

The Wa-Denim Jeans are made to be slim fit, so be it on your day off wandering around town, or casual business style, you can match the jeans with a variety of tops and shirts seamlessly!

The Nishijin-Ori has a small but strong presence on the jeans, and works with the shirts that you wear to give an even more stylish impression!

Care

Due to the transferable nature of denim indigo dye, do not wash the product with other items to avoid any color transfer.

We apply an Aptness treatment to give a strong water repellent finish to the KIMONO fabric. Although in some cases, the KIMONO fabric may have the denim indigo dye transferred when washed or dried during manufacturing, the transferred dye can be removed or become less noticeable with further washing. We appreciate your understanding of this product specific nature.
