oki-ni: The Technical Denim Guide

A newsletter from oki-ni: The Technical Denim Guide

After weeks of research and trawling through endless sources of denim related information we are very happy to bring you the first installment of our ‘tech-ni-cal’ section in the form of a comprehensive guide to denim.

Denim and jeans in particular are an endless source of fascination. They have a cult like status that transcends all economic classes and have successfully survived every fashion trend since the first recorded use of Serge De Nimes in 1600s. Denim is an integral part of our product mix. We wanted to create an unpretentious, humble space to pool information on the anatomy, production, care and history of one of fashion’s most complex and historical fabrics. In the process we have learnt a lot, we have taught some people a few things and have quite frankly gained a little bit of an obsession with this blue cloth…

We hope that this answers a few of your questions and proves to be an interesting tool for all you denim aficionados as well as those of you that just want to know how much your dry denim will shrink in the wash.
