The word Origami is a combination of Ori (or to fold), and gami (or kami, meaning paper). Origami has historically always used a traditional Japanese natural paper known as Washi, a material that is woven into the social & cultural fabric of Japan. Dating back over 1,300 years, washi has played an active role in most Japanese art forms that have developed over the last century.

SDA keeping it crazy as usual, decided to blend standard cotton, with a yarn derived from Washi paper pulp to create a proprietary 14.5oz. Selvedge denim fabric that is just as interesting to the hand as it is to the eye. Featuring a waxy finish and feel given the the washi paper blend (a material that is known to have a waxy hand to it), aesthetically, the denim has a luster that would be hard to replicate with 100% cotton.

Blending Cotton & Japanese Washi paper to create the Weft yarn for this Selvedge twill, the "Origami" jeans add to SDA's endless resume of delivering denim with a twist. Washi is a broad word for Japanese paper. Wa is an all encompassing term that suggests traditionally Japanese, while Shi is paper. Washi is a hand made paper utilizing natural fibers like local tree bark, through traditional processes.

Revamping the OG Relax Tapered cut, the brand new fit developed for these Origami jeans is a welcomed addition to the more relaxed side of a Tapered fit. With a lengthened rise to ensure the back cinch isn't bothersome, the V-cut on the back of the waistband draws inspiration from turn of the century vintage denim. The taper still follows the classic Relax Tapered, starting from the knee down to the narrow leg opening.

Paying homage to the homegrown craft with the  embroidered red crane taking front and center stage on the seam of the back pocket, Origami, literally translates as "to fold paper". The clever inclusion of a ubiquitous Japanese paper craft to lead the branding of the entire "Origami" collection is quintessentially SDA. The details drive the Origami story, with the back yoke and pocket bags all sharing the same blended Cotton/Washi chambray fabric previously seen on the "Origami" Chambray Shirt.
