ONI Denim 689 "Kiraku II Black" 12oz Relaxed Tapered Jeans


The new Kiraku-II fabric is the updated version of ONI's original Kiraku lightweight selvedge denim. Kiraku (楽), translates as "comfort" due to its 12oz lightweight fabric. The weave tension is extremely low for this denim, combining different kinds of cotton (Peru and Pima), so it has resulted in a material which is variegated and irregular despite its relatively lightweight. Crafted using thicker yarn than its predecessor, this black fabric is heavy in appearance while maintaining a deceptively breathable feel through the loose-tension weave.

For this new version of the Kiraku fabric, the shuttle looms were even more manipulated to get an ultra-low tension. The result is an unusual soft fabric with a considerable amount of slub. It has been sulphur black rope dyed. This fabric is unique, and only Oishi-San can create it.

The jeans are made with all the superior-quality ONI details such as copper buttons, high-quality pocket bags, custom vegetable-tanned deerskin leather patch and a yellow selvedge ID.

The ONI 689 Relaxed Tapered cut features a comfortable top block while keeping a slim silhouette with a strong taper from the knee down.

*Please, keep in mind that, due to low tension, "Kiraku" fabric will stretch quite a bit, so if your jeans are a tight fit at the start, don't worry because after just a few uses you will have gained the perfect fit.

The legend of ONI is alive to this day. In recent years Oishi-San has devoted himself to experimenting with widely varying grammages, rough textures, different indigo dyeing techniques and novelty cuts while always maintaining a very limited production and wielding his experience in denim which now goes back more than 60 years.
