Diving into one of the best mills in Japan, Shinya mills

The sounds of the shuttle looms roaring like muscle cars, blue dusts from indigo dancing in the whole room, this is one of the best mills in Japan, Shinya mills. It’s also where our 50’s and 20’s & 30’s fabric are woven.There are a few things about Shinya I was quite surprised about.

Hi, every denim head in the world. Today we'd like to introduce our staff's favorite, starting from the TCB founder, Hajime. Hajime - Waist Overall & Pleated Blouse Co-orp Why? Because we've made this 8oz fabric rope-dyed with pure indigo exclusively for this model.
