The fabric is a proprietary TCB denim unsanforized fabric, It is made by 100% Zimbabwe cotton, rope dyed and It has a slubby and irregular Texture. It has the natural unevenness such as unstable thread thickness and irregular tense on the fabric made by a vintage loom, not by the mainstream methods of the computer regulation. The trademark Zimbabwe cotton will show beautiful grain fades and TCB's signature roping.
The fades start showing as white dots appearing in the beginning and then each dots will get connected together. As a result, it will show so beautiful vertical fades like the authentic vintage pieces.
