Denim jacket with a round collar in spectacular sky blue. Denim is used as a synonym for jeans, but is that true? Yes and no. Denim is a weaving technique, a so-called twill weave. You can recognize it by the diagonal line in the fabric. This way of weaving makes the fabric sturdy and durable.
The fabric of this jacket is handwoven in Khamir. That is a weaving cluster in northwestern India in the state of Gujarat. Here the weavers work with an old, native cotton that has been organically grown in this region for centuries. To weave denim, a special loom is needed (of at least 3 shafts). It is therefore a weaving technique that not every weaver masters and for which special training is required.
The paint for this jacket is also made in Khamir. Indigo is obtained through a fermentation process of the plant indigofera tinctoria. If yarn or fabric is dipped in a vat of indigo, it turns green. As soon as oxygen is added, the color changes from green to indigo (blue). That can be light or dark, depending on the fabric, the quality of the indigo and the time the fabric is immersed in the vat.
Indigo has a natural antibacterial effect. Indigo gives off during the first wash.
