  • Brand Info
  • The XX-014 is Pure Blue Japan's iconic purple weft 14oz selvedge denim, widely considered one of the most unique fabrics in the world. Paired alongside a deep indigo warp, the purple dyed weft gives the surface of the fabric a dark indigo/purple color, hence the name. Woven slowly for an uneven and loose weave, the jeans have garnered critical acclaim for their incredibly slubby texture and feel. Finished with custom nickel buttons, deerskin natural leather patch, and the signature Pure Blue Japan indigofera leaf embroidery.

  • Pure Blue Japan is known for using a combination of vintage shuttle looms and natural dying techniques to create some of the most irregular and beautifully unique denim on the market. The brand is represented by their leaf logo, embroidered on the back pocket of every jean, which is the leaf of the indigofera plant used to create natural indigo dyes. Pure Blue Japan was founded in 1997 through Kenichi Iwaya's passion for denim. Now approaching twenty years in business, the brand has earned its place on the small list of artisan manufacturers that are widely considered the best in the world. With excruciating attention to detail in every step of the process from dying, to weaving, to sewing and hardware, Pure Blue Japan truly earns their prestige.
