The Kikko Denim is a 12.5oz indigo rope dyed Japanese denim woven in a traditional Japanese “kikko” pattern. Such patterns are symbolic and are taken from nature, in this case Kikko represents the tortoise shell and represents good luck. This denim was woven on a special jacquard loom capable of weaving complex patterns. Since the pattern is raised it will become more visible as the indigo fades away creating a stunning contrast between the pattern and the base of the fabric. Cut, sewn, built in Canada with tonal stitching, navy patch, and black mil spec non reflective buttons and rivets.
