Japanese Kicking Mule Workshop operates out of Japan’s denim capital, Okayama Prefecture, creating artfully colored denim pieces with traditional Japanese hand dye technique known as AWA. These 1980 Hand Dye Denim just arrived exclusively for Context and runs at a very limited number of 50 pairs. These denim are crafted from 13.7 oz white line selvedge with randomly arranged warp yarns. These yarns are then hand dyed with two shades of indigo, resulting in a pair of beautifully dyed denim with great depth of color, texture and fade. The jeans are reinforced at all pressure points of wear topped off with the brand’s signature deer hide patch. The jeans are fitted and produced entirely in Okayama, Japan. Grab them while they are still available because great jeans are hard to come by. But, once you found the perfect pair, it will last years to come through thick and thin.
