The historic Kojima region of Okayama in Japan is rich in textile tradition and is legendary for the quality of its fabrics. This is where the sought after Momotaro jeans are made. The high quality jeans are fashioned from raw selvedge denim produced on old shuttle looms and finished with a distinctive pink selvedge line. That denim is 100% Zimbabwean cotton which is notable for its durability, ability to hold indigo dye and its ability to produce unique fading patterns.
The name Momotaro honours an important figure in Japanese legend. According to folklore, Momotaro was a boy who emerged from a giant peach and then descended to Earth to become the son of an elderly couple. This couple were rejuvenated through the young boy and felt young again themselves. This enabled them to follow their dreams once more. Momotaro jeans are similarly about living the dream.
The Momotaro mantra is "made by hand without compromise". Traditional techniques are partnered by contemporary fits and cool stylistic details to create some of the planet's most sought after jeans. Now the jeans collection has been joined by a fabulous range of men's shirts that boasts the same attention to detail and beautiful finishing touches as the jeans. They are made with the same care in Japan from fine cotton fabrics and feature triple stitching to prevent shrinkage and to preserve their shape.
Momotaro shirts feature fabulous construction, fine fabrics and wonderful attention to detail making them both robust and stylish. They fit beautifully and will add a touch of genuine panache to any wardrobe. The perfect choice for both casual wear and the workplace, Momotaro shirts are extremely versatile and thus represent a great investment. We love the Momotaro range here at Jean Store and we are sure that every piece will prove to be top picks for discerning customers.
