apan, more specifically, Okayama is said to be the denim capital of the world today. So what makes Okayama denim so special? Okayama has a long and storied history in the workwear manufacturing industry, but it wasn’t until the 1960’s that they entered into the denim business. In post WWII Japan, jeans were first introduced by American soldiers and quickly became a fashionable item. As imported American jeans gained in popularity, manufacturers in Okayama decided to try their hand at producing jeans locally, thus giving birth to the Japanese denim industry. Today, there is a limited amount of machinery and skilled craftsman who can still make denim the traditional way, most of which are concentrated in the Okayama region. The knowledge and skill to make high-quality denim combined with a passion and attention to detail truly make Japanese craftsmen the masters of denim.
