Tenue de Nimes x Momotaro Dead Stock Sulphur Denim
Hailing from the textile-rich city of Okayama, Japan, the homemade denim and dying processes of Momotaro Jeans are regarded as some of the best in the industry. For this undertaking Momotaro has teamed up with Amsterdam denim boutique Tenue de Nîmes; named for the French city of Nîmes, which is regarded to be the origin of various textiles including denim. The result is an extremely limited series of co-branded jeans crafted from a multi-yarn, 12-ounce sulphur denim fabric — a twenty-year dead stock sourced from the Rampuya factory warehouse in Japan. Due to the limited availability of the dead stock fabric, only 17 pairs of the jeans were made. They will be available exclusively at Tenue de Nîmes, and will retail for €330 EUR (approximately $430 USD).
