People all over the world have been held and spellbound for centuries by a blue substance that we all know as indigo. we’re captivated by its potential for magical transformation. indigo dye has the ability to transform plain & simple fibers into complex & glorious textiles. We decided to go back to the deepest core & root of everything we do. Whether we realize it or not, we’re all here because we’re stupefied under the same spell. We’re all tied under the same spell. The SPELL OF BLUE. That’s the unwavering spirit that we try to convey in our 12 years of spine-chillin’ blue journey.
The primary witchery offering part 1, the full of indigo spell creation, the part of our enchanting #12THBLUESPELL collection; the Heavy Indigo Duck! Yes, canvas / duck always has a special place in our collection. This particular duck fabric is something else tho. It’s an indigo rope-dyed kind of cotton duck. As it’s constructed using indigo warp and indigo weft, this fabric has this rich and deep indigo tone that’ll lure you down. Oh and absolutely YES, it has the ability to generate irresistible fades too.
The fabric is weighted at 14 ounces / sq. yard, so it’s definitely on a heavier side than all the other duck fabrics we’ve had the pleasure to use. This exceptional quality fabric was shuttle-loomed in Okayama, Japan. You might notice the eye-pokin’ white mark on the outseam or the fabric edge. It’s just the nature of the fabric. It’s an attribute to the old, the late 19th century duck fabric, where you can see they had an unusually wide self-edge dot / mark. Some said, as the duck fabric was mainly used for a tent back then, it had that distinct wide mark.
This special 12th anniversary pant of ours was built using our most-versatile, most-experienced cut; the 8.25” slim straight cut. Equipped with our signature hardware sets; customized buttons and 100% copper rivets, by Scovill USA. Trimmed with a distinct #12THBLUESPELL leather patch that was made using our long trusted leather material, horse hide from Horween USA. Well you know, all the time-tested, field-tested details.
