“We are proud to announce Tenue de Nîmes teamed up with one of the world’s most exclusive denim brands: Momotaro Jeans from Kojima, Japan. We crafted a number of jeans made of a 12 oz sulphur denim, specially selected for this collaboration by the Japanese experts. This cloth is twenty year old deadstock that was sourced at the Rampuya factory warehouse in Japan. Because of the limited amount of material that was available, the Momotaro factory could only produce 17 pairs. The slow weave is solid to the touch, but the fabric is surprisingly light weight. The yarn used for this particular denim is a so-called multi-count yarn, which has irregular thickness.
The grey fabric symbolizes the era of the early 1900s and will create a great contrast the more it is worn. Unlike many other sought after denim brands, Momotaro is not only world famous for their home made denim fabrics – their premium Japanese jeans are unrivalled. All the jeans were made in Japan and are for sale exclusively at Amsterdam’s finest denim store.”
