Only now though has 78 year old Yasuo Nakajima decided to take his family’s seventh century pot dye techniques to his forst denim project, in the form of a denim brand entitled Tsurukichi, which appropriately means "longevity and prosperity". Only 42 pairs of jeans were made, the cotton was hand dyed in 315 spools. Tsurukichi jeans, around $500, due this June at Project No. 8, 138 Division St., NYC jeans, around $500, due this June at Project No. 8, 138 Division St., NYC
