Here is a fascinating video highlighting the Cone Mills producing an original loomstate unsanforized fabric for a client, for the first time in 60 years. This client is Roy Denim, and with Self Edge making the trip to Greensboro, North Carolina to video the process in one of the world’s oldest denim mill’s this makes for compelling viewing. Documenting the production of Roy’s new denim which has been custom designed by Roy Slaper himself, the raw denim will be extremely dark and will weigh in at 14.5oz per square-yard, swelling to 16.25oz after a hot soak. The denim will be available from Self Edge come March 24, so make sure if you are near go and check them out.
