Handwoven Denim Jacket | Indigo Selvedge

Size: Small

Soft, Light, Luxurious, Handwoven Denim Jacket | Yarn-Dyed Natural Indigo Color

    We believe this is the softest, lightest, most lovable denim jacket anyone has ever made.  We upgraded this denim classic with soft, light, incredible hand loomed cotton in true indigo from the 4000-year-old heritage of Indian textiles. Gamechanger. 

    Elevated. Sustainable. Fair-Trade Clothing.

    Our jacket is made from hand-spun thread that is hand-woven into selvedge denim fabric, without electricity or chemicals. These carbon neutral handlooms embody the elements of truly sustainable, handmade artisan products.  The thread is handspun on a wooden wheel then yarn-dyed in fermented indigo.  These rich, blue dyes come from indigo leaves, cane sugar, lime, expertise and time. Craftspeople hand weave the threads into denim cloth on a treadle loom, (foot-pedal-driven). Our denim has an incredible, visibly different, handloom texture. 

    Your jacket is stitched by a single tailor and made to-order in small quantities. The light weight offers luxurious three-season dressing. Wear anywhere.  Looks great dressed up or dressed down.  Layers easily. Effortless dressing with elevated craft, texture and heritage story.

    The design is a classic men's denim jacket with double pockets, contrast stitching, easy fit and double seams.  

    Note: The lightness and softness of true handloomed selvedge denim are very different than thick, heavy dungarees.  With proper care, our denim jacket will wear for years.  However, the reasons to buy this jacket are more about comfort and joy-of-use, rather than years of hard wear.  Handloomed clothing is simply different than commercial denims.

        • Handwoven Textiles

          The historical center of beautiful textiles is India which has a textile tradition going back at least 4,000 years on two vectors. One vector is handweaving, which the market valued for sensory qualities of airiness, softness and coolness on the skin. The other is India’s unparalleled command of natural plant dyes, refined pattern designs and sophisticated, sequenced techniques of printing, dyeing and binding color to cloth. These amazingly sophisticated heritage crafts are a standard in sustainable fashion.

          Hand-spun, hand-woven textiles are made without electricity or chemicals. These heritage fabrics have an incredible, visibly different, handloom texture with story and soul. Made in small quantities, by a single tailor, these are elevated, sustainable, fair-trade clothes.

        • Handmade | Blockprint | Natural Dye Product Care

          Handmades are different than commercial products and require a different kind of care for long, luxurious product life. Hand embroidered and beaded products should be spot cleaned. Whenever you need deeper cleaning, use a professional dry cleaner known for gentle, non-toxic methods and materials.

          Handwovens and Natural Dyes

          Handwovens and natural dyes are created pretty much the way they have been made for over 1000 years. As pre-industrial products, they pre-date chemical mordants to affix color. On the making end, handmades and natural dyes are almost perfectly circular and don't pollute or create toxic waste. They are joyful to use because they have living finishes with beauty and soul.

          Natural dyes require traditional care in order to maintain their beauty and longevity. Care Gently spot, hand, or gentle machine wash in cold water. No twisting or wringing. Dry flat for best shape retention. Light iron. Do not bleach. Use an eco-friendly/natural, free from chemicals & as pH neutral as possible. Avoid added fragrances and conditioners. Or, dry clean.

          Caution Keep natural dyes away from anything acidic or alkaline, which can instantly bleach natural dyes. The stay-away list includes citrus, wine, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, calcium, baking soda, etc.
