Fade Friday – Kapital Century Jeans 5S (6 months, 1 wash)
Century Denim has been a fun experiment. Kapital created this denim in a juxtaposition to American denim and Japanese craftsmanship. With an initial kakishibu coating in addition to the raw denim, the original stiffness gave way to a very soft but rugged denim. Because of the unique nature of the weave, the fade and the whiskering have been gradual. However, as you will see the progress thus far is unique and impressive.
The lines run unevenly between the pattern of sashiko on the front side. While on the back side the lines are straight and very distinct. In contrast to the whiskering lines, the fade on the thighs and knees is subtle, but because of the indigo sashiko threads and kakishibu base denim the tones are very warm.
