Organic Cotton Natural Indigo Selvedge Denim Carpenter Coat, Faded
While designing along the usual details of workwear’s standard coveralls, to elevate the designed nature of the piece the collar, which is the face of the item, has been made slightly larger. With this, the piece is given an elegant appearance that is different from normal coveralls. In terms of the silhouette, while slightly dropped at the shoulders, this piece is designed so as to give a more mature wide silhouette without becoming too oversized. In all, this piece has just the right size to wear over a shirt or T-shirt.
Designed with a refreshing shade of ice blue, the color brings to mind the image of a new spring. With an appealing uneven fade and realistic fall of the stitching both giving a look reminiscent of vintage finishes.
However, this item is not to be limited to just a nostalgic coverall, and is a piece with a solid and modern arrangement fitting the current era. As most industrial items such as chambray shirts and coveralls are patterned on the assumption that they will be folded and then delivered, most of these items, when seen in vintage clothing stores for example, do not have a three-dimensional collar. This item however, has a pattern that gives the collar a sense of presence, with the area around the neck having a similar elegant look to that of a coat. Adding to this, the silhouette has also been adjusted so that it is not too loose, but still has room to be worn roughly. In this piece one can find a good balance between the ruggedness of workwear, and a more elegant and mature mood.
100% ORGANIC COTTON
Using organic cotton sourced from Turkey and indigo sourced from India, this yarn was dyed through methods with low environmental impact. Normally, while dyeing requires a large amount of water to be boiled, this time, by using electrolyzed water to make the yarn easily dyeable before beginning the process we have been able to greatly reduce the amount of fuel oil used in the boiler. The resulting yarn from this dyeing is then tightly driven through a shuttle loom to weave a comparatively light 11.5 ounce denim fabric.
This fabric is then treated through environmentally friendly ‘nano-mist processing’, which reduces the use of water and chemicals by 70% and the use of electricity by 50% when compared to ordinary denim processing.
