We have received a selection of EDWIN's brand new "Dark Pure Indigo Rainbow Selvedge" in both Regular Taper and Straight fits, featuring dry indigo and washes weighing in at 13.5oz. Custom woven by Kaihara Mills in Japan, this denim is spun on vintage machinery, at a low speed and tension to create truly vintage selvedge denim. A mixture of American and Australian long-staple cotton are used for a softer hand, with the additional benefit of the stark white colour of these cottons allowing a deeper indigo dye to occur. The warp and weft threads are spun differently for traditional texture, with the warp featuring natural middle-pitched uneven yarns to allow 1940's/50's esque fading on the warp, while the weft incorporates shorter-pitched uneven yarns, twisted tightly for a crunchier weave. 

"Relic" is the perfect example of EDWIN's mastery of washed denim, and makes it obvious that not all washed denim are the same. Not only is the colour perfect in both its shade and placement, but the elaborate distressing and repairs highlight the craftsmanship and effort put into each pair. "Relic" represents a pair of jeans worn to their full potential, for many years, with many washes, and with much need for repair. The process begins with stonewashing and bleaching so the colour is significantly faded throughout the whole of the fabric, with additional heavy creasing and holes forming in high-wear areas, particularly near the knees and thighs, which are achieved via hand-shaving. Holes forming down the thighs and knees are repaired with authentically traditional visible mending methods including darning and patching. "Relic" is finished by lightly dyeing the surface with a yellow-green dye that naturally and realistically matching the distressed details.
