Studio D'Artisan D1864 "Kurozome" Black 14oz Relaxed Tapered Jeans



The essence of these jeans encapsulates more than exceptional craftsmanship; it carries the very soul of time-honored traditions. They undergo a meticulous process of cutting and sewing to perfection, followed by a transformative journey at the prestigious Kyoto Montsuki dye house. This tradition traces back to the ancient Heian period, a time when black attire bore deep significance for both Buddhist priests and Samurais, symbolizing formality and respect. With a legacy spanning over a century, this dye house has mastered the art of employing natural pigments and intricate hand-dyeing techniques, crafting fabrics that are truly darker than the night itself.

This art of black dyeing, is characterized by a meticulous layering process. The foundational dye is carefully applied multiple times before incorporating the infusion of the black pigment, derived from natural sources such as Betel nuts (Binroji). This intricate technique involves the strategic interplay of hues, each layer building upon the other to achieve the deepest and most intense black tone within the fabric. The undertaking of this labor-intensive dyeing process is entrusted to the seasoned artisans of Kyoto Montsuki, who meticulously hand-dye each individual garment. Their unparalleled skill extends to the subtle manipulation of the dye bath's temperature over time, an artful adjustment that ensures the optimal outcome.

This ultimate black is the culmination of relentless pursuit—a relentless pursuit of black, to be precise. It embodies the spirit of discipline and strength that goes beyond the tangible shade of black.

Designed with a relaxed tapered fit, these jeans seamlessly blend comfort and style.
