Diesel recently developed a new jean made from a combination of denim fabric and paper. The Cotton Paper Denim jean is made of a natural, lightweight, resistant denim that’s breathable and strong. The characteristics are achieved by using a warp of 100% organic cotton and a weft made of Japanese paper. The presence of the paper in the denim is key and after several stages of finishing a ripple effect is produced with a stiff, dry hand. The jeans will be available in the fall in the carrot shaped ‘Keever’ fit. Each individual jean upon purchase will be presented in its own original dust bag.
