14oz Indigo Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right Hand Twill
  • White weft, indigo rope dyed warp

Our lightest denim to be made into jeans, very wearable and a great summer weight.

Overdyed 14oz Indigo Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right Hand Twill
  • White weft, indigo rope dyed warp
  • Overdyed with black to a very dark black-indigo which will fade with time and wear

14oz Paper or Money Denim

  • Right Hand Twill
  • The warp is the same yarn as we use in our 18oz raw denim
  • The weft is constructed from currency pulp
  • The result is a denim that is stronger than 18oz, but weighs about 14oz
  • Very little weft show through on the face of the fabric
  • This is a one-off denim that proved to be a very expensive experiment, we will not be making it again

14oz Ivory Cotton Sateen

  • Sanforized
  • Our take on the famous Lee cotton sateen from the 70’s/80’s

14oz Ivory Cotton Piquè

  • Sanforized
  • Our take on the famous Levi’s cotton piquè from the 70’s/80’s

16.5oz Indigo Duck (Canvas)

  • Loomstate (raw)
  • Plain weave
  • Indigo rope dyed warp and weft

Initially very stiff and amazingly deep, very dark blue, softens up a lot with wear and fades with incredible contrast.

17oz Natural Indigo Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • White organic cotton weft, natural indigo rope dyed warp

A very dark denim with little weft showing through on the face of the fabric. Takes a long time to start fading, but once it does the fades develop quickly.

17oz Brown Duck (Canvas)

  • Sanforized
  • Plain weave
  • Brown weft and warp

A nice tough duck in a classic brown colour, fades with wear.

18oz Indigo Denim

  • Lightly sanforized, so treat as raw
  • Right hand twill
  • White weft, indigo rope dyed warp

This is our slubbiest denim and is woven under pretty high tension. It fades with a lot of contrast as the raised slubs give up their indigo. Not particularly breathable, so feels warmer than our signature 21oz selvedge denim. We do not put the denim through an anti-skewing process post-weave, so jeans made from this denim may exhibit leg twist, particularly in the left leg.

18oz Indigo/Indigo Denim

  • Lightly sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • Indigo rope dyed warp and weft

When new, fairly stiff and slightly slubby. Because we have used indigo warp and weft the reverse of the fabric is the same colour as the face. As the yarns are rope dyed, wear exposes the white core of the cotton yarns giving lovely contrast fades.

18oz Vintage Indigo Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • White weft, indigo dyed warp

Woven slowly under low tension on vintage shuttle looms for a classic, vintage look and feel.

19oz Indigo Denim

  • Loomstate (raw)
  • Left hand twill
  • White weft, indigo rope dyed warp

Left hand twills are usually quite pale as there is a lot of weft showing though on the face of the fabric. We have achieved a very dark indigo face by dipping the warp in indigo many times and weaving under massive tension. The result is a very dark but inherently unstable denim. We one-wash all the jeans we make from this denim, to tame some of that instability. We do not put the denim through an anti-skewing process post-weave, so jeans made from this denim are likely to exhibit leg twist, particularly in the right leg.

21oz Indigo Selvedge Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • White weft, indigo rope dyed warp

Our signature denim, we achieve bulk by making the weft from 2 twisted yarns. We weave under fairly low tension to achieve an amazingly soft but super thick denim which moulds and drapes particularly well. The weft is quite slubby and the denim has a lovely ‘hand made’ feel to it. Fades with fairly low contrast.

21oz Indigo Non-Selvedge Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • White weft, indigo rope dyed warp

Woven under high pressure on a projectile loom and treated post weave to be wind and fade resistant. This denim does not flap in the wind as much as non-treated denims, making it ideal for jeans for bikers.

21oz Super Black Fades to Grey Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • Black reactive dyed weft, black sulphur rope dyed warp

Initially a very dark black denim which fades to grey as the sulphur dyed warp gives up its dye. We weave under fairly low tension to achieve an amazingly soft but super thick denim which moulds and drapes particularly well.

21oz Super Black Non-Fade, Non-Selvedge Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • Black reactive dyed weft, black reactive dyed warp

This denim is designed not to fade. In fact you can wash a white t-shirt at the same time as a pair of jeans made out of this denim with impunity.

21oz Black Selvedge Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • White weft, black rope dyed warp

Effectively the same denim as our 21oz indigo selvedge, but the warp is black sulphur rope dyed instead of indigo. We weave under fairly low tensionto achieve an amazingly soft but super thick denim which moulds and drapes particularly well. The weft is quite slubby and the denim has a lovely ‘hand made’ feel to it.

21oz Black Overdyed Indigo Selvedge Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • Originally white weft, indigo rope dyed warp

This is our 21oz indigo selvedge denim overdyed with black dye. We make the jeans and then tumble the finished jeans (minus the leather patch) in a vat of dye. The black dye leaches out over time resulting in a bluey/grey faded colour.

21oz Black Non-Selvedge Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • White weft, black rope dyed warp

Woven under high pressure on a projectile loom and treated post weave to be wind and fade resistant. This denim does not flap in the wind as much as non-treated denims, making it ideal for jeans for bikers.

21oz White Selvedge Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • White weft, white warp

Just like the indigo version, but this denim is woven with a white weft and a white warp.

22oz  Indigo Selvedge Denim

  • Sanforized, but unwashed, so expect some shrinkage
  • Created especially for Pronto Denim
  • Dark beige weft, indigo warp

23oz Ultra Heavy Raw (UHR) Indigo Selvedge Denim

  • Loomstate (raw)
  • Right hand twill
  • White weft, indigo rope dyed warp

This denim weighs in at 21oz when it comes off the loom but after being soaked or washed it shrinks so the same quantity of material becomes heavier, approximately 23oz. It is fairly slubby and after shrinking becomes very dense and super windproof. Fades with great contrast.

25oz Indigo Selvedge Denim

  • Sanforized
  • Right hand twill
  • White weft, indigo rope dyed warp

The result of a late night ‘chat’ with Roger Hatt from VMC and initially woven to commemorate VMC’s 25th anniversary, this denim is so sought after we have continued making it ever since. It is what we believe to be on the limits of what can be woven and sewn, and worn with any degree of comfort. The first few weeks of wearing a pair of jeans made from this denim is a challenge, but after a while they end up feeling like sweat pants. This denim fades with great contrast.

25oz Indigo/Indigo Selvedge Denim

  • Sanforized and unwashed
  • Right hand twill
  • Selvedge Indigo/Indigo 25oz Denim
  • Rope dyed warp and cone (or cheese) dyed weft
