EX-101 is our first signature mid-weight denim. Both warp and weft is made by twisting several irreguler slub yarns. The twisted #6 indigo warp yarn and #6 grey weft yarn then weaved through a painstaking extra low tension setting shuttle loom.
The extra low tension setting will caused the machine to rattle so much that it produce the unique slub and knots on the surface of the fabric. Thus resulting a very slubby, hairy and irregular denim fabric.
The color is a dark greyish indigo. It will evolve into an very natural blue color and full of texture fabric after wears.
Yoke is like the center parts of the jeans. It integrate the left and right parts of the jeans, and also the top and bottom part of the top block.
Because of its important task to handle the stress from the owners wear and movement, we decide to interline the yoke using our Handwoven Indigo Dyed Pocket Fabric to reinforced its strength.
This will also act as a visual signature enhancer for the jeans.
Handwoven Natural Indigo Pocket Interlining Fabric
WARPWEFT COMPANY is producing our own original pocket bag interlining fabric. First of all, the fabric is made with a Handwoven shuttle loom, which needed a very long time to produced. We then print the Japanese ASANO-HA pattern using a traditional resist dye method. Finally hand dye the fabric in a natural indigo vat for several times until it reach a dark shade of indigo.
Selvedge Continuous Fly
The fly parts is made from 1 continues piece of fabric instead of 2 separate pieces. Even seems unlikely, in years of constant wearing, there is a chance that the fly may be detached from each other. When that happens , usually it gonna be so hard to fix them, moreover if you want it to be as good as it used to be. With continues fly construction, we will reduce the chance of the broken fly to almost impossible.
We take this 1 step even further, the continues fly is made from the selvedge parts of the fabric. Even though its not even visible from the outside, we still decide to present it to the owner of the jeans, cause every time you button/unbutton your jeans, you will be able to admire this special detail.
Arcuate or known by most people as Arc, is the main visual signature of the jeans. As we said, we never put too much effort into the visual area. So we decide to design the arc just so it represent these few fundamental requirements:
1. The Arc Stitch should positioned center and balance inside the pocket area
2. All the stitching must be able to be sewn from one side to another side without lifting the needle
3. The Arc must have at least 1 looped stitch (intersect stitch)
Our Signature Arcuate is made just so it can qualify those 3 points above, thats why we called it “The Fundamental Arc”
The Button and Rivets attached in our jeans are exclusively made for WARPWEFT COMPANY by YKK JAPAN. Our Cotton Logo is engraved at the Buttons and at the Rivet's tack, while our brand initial is engraved at the button's tack and Burr.
These hardware's material is made from a copper with a dark brass color to achieve more neutral and subtle feels to the jeans.
As it worn out, the natural copper color will eventually pop out a little by little and give you a feel of a vintage denim.
