Beautiful lightweight selvage dyed in traditional Persicaria tinctoria,(aka japanese indigo) It was already in use in the Western Zhou period (c. 1045–771 B.C.), and was the most important blue dye in East Asia until the arrival of Indigofera from the south.

Deadstock fabrics are considered to be sustainable as they are given a new purpose by you and me as for the mills or factories there could not be used anymore being the last pieces left.
Selvage fabrics are highly respected in the world of denim, as for the mills it is their top tier product. they are produced on the last remaining vintage looms they have kept for the love of the history.
Only the best (in general BCI) cotton is used, as their only goal is to make the best fabric they can and they really do not f*ck around when it comes to weaving selvage fabrics.
*unfortunately we can not offer BCI certificates since dead-stocks do not come with any certificate, but as said, being it DEADSTOCK saves you more than making a new production out of organic cotton or anything else labeled as 'sustainable'.
Only our made-to-order (1.000m ++)will have these. if you want to run a private production, mail us for the options we have.
