The Cone Denim Type III jacket is made with the last remnants of 14.75oz art.1968 selvedge fabric woven in the Cone Mills White Oak plant in Greensboro (North Carolina). The legendary White Oak plant has been for many years the only mill making Selvedge denim in the USA. Its recent closure in 2017 has been a significant loss for denim heads from around the world. Fortunately, Companion stocked up on some of the last few metres of Selvedge fabric before it closed.
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.
