The Naked & Famous Denim Made in Japan 11 - a masterpiece showcasing the richness and depth of ancient Japanese dyeing techniques. The MIJ11 is hand-dyed using the natural and eco-friendly Kakishibu or persimmon dyeing technique. This laborious process involves dipping the yarns by hand in the Kakishibu dye and letting them dry under the sun. The slow weaving process on vintage shuttle looms creates an organic, uneven texture, resulting in a denim with a unique warm brown hue and subtle variation in color.
All the details of MIJ11 are designed to evolve with time. The iron buttons will rust and the copper rivets will oxidize to a beautiful green patina. The jeans also come with a Japanese natural shell cordovan leather patch, cut from one of the most prized varieties of leather. Each pair is made with care and attention to detail, reflecting the skill and craftsmanship of the artisans who continue to practice this craft.
The MIJ11 is a stunning example of the Kakishibu dyeing technique and a beautiful reminder of the value of traditional practices- they are a symbol of a timeless craft, and a tribute to the beauty of imperfection.
The Weird Guy is a standard tapered fit with a medium rise, a comfortable top block, and a taper from knee to hem.
