Huge advocates of Japanese selvedge denim since their inception back in 2001, highly considered Swedish outfit Nudie celebrate their 15th Anniversary by releasing their most environmentally conscious offering to date. The Bloodline Collection reflects the brand’s lineage in a selection of unique and innovative fabrications that each conveying their self-proclaimed dictum: ‘Our heart is made from dry denim; our blood is indigo coloured’.
From this capsule collection comes a reinterpretation of one of their seminal tight-fitting silhouettes: The Lean Dean. This iteration comes constructed with a whopping 31% paper content which, coupled with organic cotton, makes this carrot-shaped jean impressively eco-friendly. The tight weave of the 12.5oz selvedge denim makes these very rigid, lending maximum break-in potential for a truly unique aesthetic. In a nod to the paper component of this idiosyncratic creation, the brand’s signature pocket stitching comes woven from a crisp white thread.
