Mail bag update…

I wasn’t anticipating an update so soon, since I’ve only been using this bag for a week or so…

but I’ve noticed these couple of days that my Studio D’Artisan ‘Clipper’ jeans has been slowly, but surely, rubbing indigo all over the back of the bag 🙂

Looks awesome doesn’t it?

Hopefully as the grain expands and the leather darkens, the indigo will blend in beautifully.

I know lots of people who are new to ‘dry denim‘ get freaked out by indigo stains on their shoes and wallets, etc – but to appreciate denim, we must love the indigo dye; and similarly for natural leather, we must embrace our unique ageing, indigo stained or not 🙂

 

Oh, and did I mention the Clipper jeans bleed a lot?

It’s already been soaked once and washed once – yet there’s still lots of indigo just dyeing to jump off the surface of the denim!

There were spots of fading from the machine wash – but these have gradually disappeared over time as indigo from other parts of the denim moved in..

I think with the special edition Studio D’Artisan jeans, the yarn is dipped into the indigo vat as many times as the dyer see fit – not strictly adhering to any set number, the process is complete once the dyer is satisfied with hue and intensity of blue.

I guess who ever dyed the Clipper yarns liked saturation 😛
