So what makes our denim premium? There are a few fabrication processes that our North American-made denim goes through that make it unique and durable for the customer (That’s you!).  Our 1897 Premium Denim is true premium denim, and here are a few reasons why:

1.  Higher quality denim fabrications are implemented.

  • Long ring-spun denim was originally used to manufacture denim up until the late 70’s when it was replaced with a less expensive process. Although it takes longer to create a ring-spun denim, a greater strength and softness is achieved in the process. Ring spun denim also has unique fabric characteristics that give the denim an uneven, yet authentic vintage appeal.
  • Crosshatch weaves create a grid-like pattern in the denim’s weave which is accomplished by mixing uneven warp and weft yarns (these are the yarns or threads that run up and down vs. left and right). Crosshatch denim is a rare type of denim that will develop a unique crisscrossed look as the denim wears and fades with use.

2.   The 1897 Premium Denim’s wash process is applied industrially and by hand.

  • Hand sanding and blasting are used to soften the fabric and create the “worn-in” look.  Either blasting sand at high pressure or simply brushing sandpaper-like material against the fabric by hand can be used to achieve this effect.
  • Mercerized treatments are applied in fabrication to add extra strength and luster to the fabric.
