This is our first jeans collaboration with Companion Denim. These are one of the most detailed high-quality jeans available in the market. The Handwoven stripes fabric on the right back pocket (lined for extra strength) was woven in India by an artisan. The jeans have been sewn and finished by no more than two pairs of hands in the Companion workshop located in the heart of Sabadell, a town in the metropolitan area of Barcelona. They are using a mix of both vintage and modern sewing machines which they have collected through the years. They only work with the machinery that offers the highest quality and most reliable stitchings for jeans making.
For this collab, we selected one of the greatest selvedge sanforized types of denim we have come across, a Japanese 15oz. Zimbabwe cotton with red selvedge ID woven in Kojima. Slubbiness, texture and inky indigo shade, the perfect balance for a perfect fade.
The jeans are made with premium quality core-spun thread, combining the high tensile strength of the polyester fibres in the core with a long-staple cotton wrap for a rough and natural cottony texture.
The raw copper customized buttons and rivets are made in France, using a classic finish and a top-quality material.
The leather patch is made in Italy by a skilled leather craftsman, using only the finest full and top grain natural vegetable tan leather, mid-weight (2mm) and customized with our logo.
The fit is the Joel Slim, the Companion most popular and timeless cut. It has a well-balanced top block and leg and fits well to most body types.
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. Companion denim is built on the values of quality, durability, honesty and respect for the environment.
