Studio D'artisan was founded by Shigeharu Tagaki in Osaka Japan back in 1979 and it was the earliest of the five Osaka brands that later became known as the Osaka Five, five brands from Osaka that put Japanese denim on the map and created the foundation of Japanese denim production.
These jeans are made from a very special organic cotton called "Road runner". It is grown in California by Sally Fox, a biologist who has dedicated herself to developing cotton species that give naturally colored fibers. This is one of her green varieties, masterfully spun and woven into a 13,5 oz low tension denim. The result is a soft denim with a slightly irregular surface, from which Studio D'artisan has sewn jeans that are slimly cut with a regular rise in the waist. The sizing runs rather small so make sure you check the size charts before placing your order!
These jeans have not been dyed with any dye. The cotton has a naturally green color, a very uncommon thing in the textile industry. The green cotton fibers that Sally Fox grown have the special property that they turn more green as they are washed! Read this interview with Sally to learn more about her work with cotton and the different colors she grows.
