    This right here is the genesis of Nudie Jeans. The 13.75 oz. green cast selvage from Kaihara Mills is our heritage. A tiny sample piece of this weave left us awe-struck back in 2001. What makes it even greater is that we're still amazed, over twenty years later, by how it ages and develops if you give it the time.

  2. We recommend a healthy dose of daily wear and no wash for six months for all dry denim. That is if you're going for the look of a unique worn-in second skin.

    During this journey, your stiff drys will take on the character of a second skin. Indigo rubs off in areas exposed to you and your life. Sometimes you may feel like giving up. But relax; your part is pretty simple — make the most of the journey, enjoy, and trust the process.
