Denim aficionados take note: Japan Blue founder Katsu Manabe has enlisted the help of Tenue de Nîmes to introduce the world to his new Côte d'Ivoire Cotton Jeans. To create this jean, Japan Blue sought a special type of African cotton that was used in the early days of denim production. That search led to Africa's Ivory Coast where the cotton is hand-picked to reduce any chances of damage and is renowned for its natural color fading during break-in. Three options will be available: an indigo warp and black weft, a double indigo, and a washed style.
