Rawr Denim is running a pretty epic series teaching denim heads like you how to craft your own pair of raw denim jeans, penned by Christopher J. Brown of Brown, Deim. This is no small feat as you can imagine, but what an amazing summer project to attempt! If you want to learn how to make your own raw denim, read on.
“To produce your own pair of raw denim is a very exciting experience because it stokes creativity on several fronts. Even within the micro-niche world of fine raw denim it’s great fun to see classic ideas experimented with and new styles develop. In doing so, it allows raw denim to move forward with better design.
Your desire to create your own pair of raw jeans originates with creativity. Specifically, the creativity to produce your very own fresh jeans with either a different fit, design, fabrique, or other qualities.”
Zachary Myers, founder and CEO of independent premium denim brand Zace Denim (pronounced “Zacky”) takes us behind the scenes on what steps are taken to produce jeans. For those of you who have ever wondered how to sew jeans, this video demonstrates a taste of all the work that goes into one pair of jeans. For smaller denim companies like Zace Denim, much of the work is still handmade. In this case, the jeans are handmade in Ohio.
It’s a pretty cool video that we’re sure denim heads could appreciate, but for non-denim geeks, we think it puts things into perspective whenever we see high price tags on designer jeans: a lot of blood, sweat and tears go into every single pair!
Also to note: Zace Denim recently did a re-brand of their logo. We are digging the new sleek, minimal look. For more information on Zace Denim, keep checking the Zace Denim Web site for new developments.
