Japanese Denim Factory Tour with DC4 - Part 2

Here's part 2 of our Factory Tour, this time leading to a company that does the distressing of premium jeans. Sure, we might not sell pre-distressed jeans, but it was cool to have a look around. The workers there were very skilled and created some pretty authentic looking fades using different techniques that you can see in the pictures. The factory processes jeans for big names like Edwin, Lee, PRPS and Iron Heart and has been operational since 1965.

In this machine the jeans get stonewashed.

Here you can see some of the pebbles used to 'wash' the jeans with.

The results!

The keen eye will spot a load of PRPS jeans here.
