Have you ever wondered why Japanese denim is valued by people worldwide? Well, the answer is simple -- quality. Much of the denim that comes out of Japan is a cut above the rest and is made with incredible craftsmanship. Momotaro Jeans is a denim brand out of Kojima, the “denim capital” of Japan, and considered by many to be the holy grail of Japanese denim jeans.
About Momotaro Jeans
Momotaro Jeans’ slogan, “Made by hand without compromise”, speaks volumes about its design and manufacturing philosophy. All of their denim is made of 100% Zimbabwean cotton, which is known to be durable, of high-quality, and uniquely able to better hold indigo dye. Momotaro jeans are also all hand-made to ensure only the best quality. It is said that it takes more than 7 hours to produce one meter of fabric by highly-skilled Japanese artisans!
Japanese jeans are well-known for selvedge in the denim, which helps to prevent the fabric from unraveling and fraying. Momotaro’s selvage is distinct, using pink thread to mimic the peach in the Japanese legend of Momotaro, the brand’s namesake.
A great thing about Momotaro’s incredibly high-quality jeans is that they have a few different labels to help cater to everybody. Regardless of whether you prefer a straight leg or a slim fit, you’re likely to find a pair of jeans to fit your style. The four labels that Momotaro has are the Copper, Vintage, Battle and Gold labels.
Copper Label: Uses rope-dyed denim that is rinsed in mineral water. Has vivid yellow stitching.
Vintage Label: Uses authentic raw denim in a shrink-to-fit construction.
Battle Label: Uses Momotaro’s famous heavyweight dark blue indigo denim along with its signature white stitching.
Gold Label: The most expensive label, using denim hand-woven on shuttle looms.
Momotaro Jeans is clearly one of the most popular designer jeans brands from Japan, if not one of the more prolific fashion brands in the world. Treat yourself by getting a pair of blue jeans from this label today! Want to learn how? Read on!
