The Blouson Bleu is a unique piece inspired by classic French workwear. The fabric is woven using one of the last shuttle looms that remain in operation in the Alsace region in France. The result is a 14oz selvedge herringbone fabric indigo x indigo, that is, both the warp and weft looms have been indigo-dyed, which will give a very slight contrast fade. The construction is top-notch with careful attention to detail, including corozo buttons (tropical palm that grows in South America), rounded collar and tailored buttonholes.
Companion is a small denim-focused brand created in 2013 by Iu Franquesa in Sabadell (Barcelona), a town with a long-established textile tradition. The Companion workshop was established as a symbol of craftsmanship and dedication, and here Iu makes each piece with flawless attention to detail.
