Founded over 110 years ago, Kurabo is one of the oldest manufacturers of Japanese textiles today. Their use of natural indigo dyes and unique spinning processes have set them apart from the competition. Their unsurpassed quality has gained the respect of "Denim Heads" worldwide.
Selvedge is the narrow, tightly woven band on either edge of the denim fabric. A selvedge end prevents the edge of the denim from unravelling and is only found on denim woven on narrow-width, antique looms.
"Selecting our selvedge denims is easily the most fun I get to have each week. We're constantly discovering new denims and selvedge fabrics. I love the idea of introducing our customers to a hand-picked Suvin cotton deadstock denim or the original K-series selvedge made from the first denim ever produced in Japan."
Twill lines are the diagonal lines found on most denim. The diagonal direction comes from the 3 warp yarns going under and over the 1 weft yarn. 3x1 takes it's name in part due to this weaving pattern.
One of our finest denims is woven entirely from Suvin Cotton, the most luxurious cotton in the world. A hybrid of Sea Island cotton and Sujata cotton from India, Suvin cotton is extremely rare and expensive to produce.
