Hitting this hue of indigo with perfection, Natural Indigo hank dyed in Tokushima, Japan is the fabric of choice for this stellar piece. PBJ have elevated the standard by pairing everyone's favorite Type II silhouette, with the meticulously shuttle loomed Natural Indigo Selvedge denim.
Sharing an identical denim to the AI series, the AI reflects the word Aizome, or Natural indigo dye. The cotton yarns used to weave the fabric of these jeans are hank dyed with natural indigo, by ageing craftsmen in Tokushima, Japan. With hank dyeing, the yarns are dipped repeatedly by hand until the deep blue color of the natural indigo has settled into the cotton.
The persistence that hank dyeing with natural indigo requires, guarantees a denim with a more resilient indigo color than any chemical indigo dye. The lenghty duration for the preparation of the dye, as well as a limited annual supply (only using locally sourced Indigofera plant leaves) make natural indigo denim very special and sought after.
