You might love the material of raw denim, but did you ever think of other instances in which it is used? As raw denim is known for its slick, industrial, sturdy, and clean design, it makes sense that it isn’t just used for jeans (that demand your brutal attention). Its other “use cases” include times when you need protection or a very rigid, albeit fashionable, clothing accessory.
If your interest is piqued, please read on for our five raw denim accessories that you need to know:
1. iPad and iPhone Raw Denim Case ($65.oo USD)

2. “Chelsea” Raw Denim Bow Tie ($38.00 USD)
