Following up the Pure Blue Japan XX-012, Blue in Green has released another sharp looking pair of denim, this time from Oni Denim. The Oni Denim 512XX Heavyweight Low Rise Tapered Leg Jeans utilize a heavier 16.5 Oz. original low tension selvedge denim which create the aesthetic look and feel of hand woven denim.
Oni‘s slubby low tension weave successfully uses uneven threads and yarns in order to create this hand-woven texture. Previously, fabric looms were practically destroyed in the attempt to simulate the roughness and texture of hand woven denim.
Only one loom was found capable of creating this texture, and all of Oni Denim is woven using this one and only machine. It is operated by a single master weaver in Japan who is able to manage it and prevent damage to the machine. This single loom produces the super loose tension in the thread length necessary for weaving Oni Denim.
Notable for this particular denim is the unique fading. The fading begins with the top most layer of fine points above the threads and then moves to a layer of lines along the threads. The denim fading ends with a gradual presentation of the denim surface.
Available in sizes 28-34, Blue In Green is offering them in Raw or Once Washed and both with plain rear pockets.
