12 1/2 oz right hand twill denim from turkey. Pure indigo dyed fabric with 98 % cotton and 2% lycra. The layered colour effect is inspired by a pair of 100 year old jeans excavated from a closed down mine in goldfields, nevada. This, now very expensive pair of vintage jeans, was dyed with pure indigo, but when found they had been severely effected by 100 years of dust, dirt, oil, salt and water. To achieve this layered effect neuw overdyed the pure indigo fabric with another dye of indigo, scraped and steamed the garment then finish it off with black pigment spray and 3d wear. The result is a modern looking jean with layers of intensely dark and rich shades of indigo.
