Japan is renowned for its denim craftsmanship, and this deadstock midweight denim is the perfect example. With a black warp and white weft, this premium Japanese denim showcases a classic twill weave, offering a medium drape and a subtly rustic texture on the right side, while providing a softer touch on the wrong side. Its substantial weight lends it plenty of character and dimension, making it perfect for sewing timeless pieces such as classic five-pocket jeans, overalls, skirts, workwear, as well as structured dresses and jackets.

Care Instructions


Always pretreat fabric before sewing to remove chemical sizing from the manufacturing process. Pre-washing also gives you a better sense of the true drape and handfeel of a fabric. We recommend washing and drying fabric in the same way you intend to wash your finished garment. Be sure to separate brights and colours, as some dyes and prints may run the first few times you wash them. You can add half a cup to one cup of vinegar to the final rinse cycle to help set the colours and minimize bleeding. It’s important to wash and dry denim to remove any potential shrinkage down the road.

Long-Term Care

Machine wash in warm water and tumble dry on medium. To preserve the intensity of dye and recovery in stretch denim, it’s best to wash your finished jeans in cool water and hang to dry. No need to wash denim after every wear.

Fabric Tips

For most applications, light to midweight denim can be cut on the fold. We recommend cutting heavyweight denims on a single layer. Use a fresh 90/14 needle for light to midweight denim and a 100/16 needle for heavyweight denim.
