Denim is used as a synonym for jeans, but is that correct? 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 these jeans 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.
These denim pants are dyed with natural indigo. 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). This can be light or dark, depending on the substance, the quality of the indigo and the time the substance is immersed in the vat. Indigo has a natural antibacterial effect. Indigo bleeds during the first washes.
