Upcoming Raw Denim Events: May 9 – May 16

Raw denim culture may exist in large part online:  in forums, tumblrs, instagram feeds, webshops, and news sites like this one, but there’s still a lot to be said for meeting with the people who make and sell the stuff we love. This is our weekly post to tell you all about the happenings in the world of raw denim so you can go out and be a part of them.

If you’re hosting an event and would like it featured on an upcoming post, please let us know at [email protected].
