ONI Denim has long been admired as one of the finest and most beautiful denims coming out of Japan. Notorious for its slubby texture and loose weave, their denim is produced by just one Japanese man who hand adjusts the loom himself. It is said that the Japanese craftsman cannot work in the colder months of the year, so the fabric is only woven during the summer months, making it all the more elusive.
Here was have the Kiraku from ONI which is their lightest denim to date, coming in at a mere 12oz. Often using heavier weight fabrics, if you’ve been looking for a pair of ONI that are perfect for the summer, these joints are for you. With a rope dyed natural indigo warp and light beige weft, the Kiraku yarn is going to lend itself to quick fading and result in a beautiful grading of blues. The fabric is unsanforized and has undergone a tempi treatment which removes shrinkage. With custom engraved buttons and hardware, back pocket rivets and raised belt loops, no detail is spared. Coming in ONI’s Clean Straight and High Tapered fit, choose that summer silhouette you’ve been looking for in a lightweight and characterful denim.
