Artisans require not only time but also fine techniques when they dye our jeans beautifully.

That’s the truth.

They dye one item in two days.

Handcrafts in Kyoto demand the courteous handwork and enchanting quality.

After that, they will soak the jeans in the water with neutralized dyestuff for one hour. And also, they wash jeans again and again. Dyed jeans were washed and dried in the shade. 3 days later, dried jeans will be inspected and pressed. Eventually, the one pair of jeans was dyed by numbers of steps.

 


Kyoto Denim dyes our jeans with traditional dye technique, which is also similar to those used by kimono.
We are proud of our traditional handwork.
