The denim is dyed from unripe persimmons and then sashiko stitched with indigo thread to create the unique color on this jacket. The fade is unique from usual indigo, producing subtle fading and patina over time while also forming an interesting diamond pattern. A celebration of a hundred years of Western and Eastern denim and indigo.
The sashiko stitch was originally a way to reinforce garments in Japan during the Edo period, and the western rivets and cotton denim heritage continues to be the pride of American fashion. These jeans, like so many other Kapital pieces, is thoughtful and compelling.
