“Orslow” means slow and careful creation, a term that really is underused in the apparel industry these days. The artisan Japanese denim company takes time and care to create beautiful, meaningful denim pieces based on traditional denim history, with particular attention spent on workwear detailing and aesthetics. Selfedge Japanese fabrics from Okayama are mostly raw and untreated with neppy weaves, 2X1 constructions and earthy chambrays at the heart of the collection.
Garments are even constructed on 1960s ‘Union Special’ machines, true dedication to the quality and precision involved in garment construction of yesterday. We visited their stand at last week’s Capsule trade show and loved every piece! They have a store in Tokyo and will hopefully be stocked in stores worldwide in the future.
