The Tanuki NT (Natural Indigo Tapered) is made with a unique natural indigo dyed fabric that will result in beautiful fades with a strong character. Made with 100% Texas cotton and using a low-tension weave applied on the shuttle loom, the fabric is dyed in natural indigo and the colour is deep and rich with tons of character. Fibres saturated with pure organic indigo produce a bouquet of blue shades and a slightly woolly and slubby outer appearance. The time-honoured tradition of nurturing live indigo has been perfected to create a natural indigo fabric unlike anything seen or felt before. Decades of experience setting a new standard for the future.
The cut is a modern tapered fit, simple taper from the knee down with a close leg opening, still offering plenty of room in the thigh and top block with a mid-rise.
Near the back pocket there is the stitched Tanuki 二 (Ni) logo, two parallel lines in Japanese Kanji representing the number 2. The lower line represents the past, tradition, the standard, peace. The upper line represents the future, change, strength. The red and blue colours of their logo refer to Japan’s flag, honouring their roots as denim artisans.
