Jeans (Japanese denim)

Momotaro

Established 2005

Founded in 2005 as part of the Japan Blue Company, Momotaro is a jeans manufacturer with a focus on producing top quality denim. In the 1960’s the youth of Japan began to demand American blue jeans as seen in Hollywood films. Most of the denim came from the Kojima region of Okayama, but it was not the same quality as American denim. Founded in the 1980s, Japan Blue Company was able to equal the quality of American denim.

Constructed from 100% Zimbabwean cotton, which is renowned for its quality, durability and unique fading characteristics, Momotaro jeans are still produced, by hand, in the Kojima region. Their unique features and dedication to quality manufacturing has made Momotaro one of the premiere denim manufacturers in the world today.

Trivia:
* According to a Japanese legend, Momotaro was a small boy born from a giant peach who descends to earth to be the son of an elderly couple. The boy rejuvenates the old couple, making them feel young again, and encouraging them to follow their dreams.
