Merchant & Mills 8.7oz Recycled Japanese Denim

A 8.7oz recycled Japanese denim in a classic indigo blue.

A great denim, it would make a great pair of Merchant & Mills  Harlene dungarees. This denim will continue to soften and lighten slightly upon continual washing.

This denim is produced in Okayama, Japan, an area famous for its denim mills, indigo dye and its long history of denim weaving. It is made in a city with an abundance of natural spring water, which is used during the dyeing and processing and helps create a consistent and unique level of colour in their denim.

Sustainability and protecting the environment is very important to the mill, where they follows strict environmental standards for their use of water. Making sure that any water left over from their dye house is four times purified to drinking grade; ensuring it is safe for them to return to the river where the water irrigation systems are connected to the local vegetable fields and rice paddies, and later ending up in the Setonaikai sea. The factories are also run on 10% solar energy.

Fabric is €38,80 per meter, the price listed is for 25cm

Fabric width –151cm

The fabric will be cut into 1 continuous piece when ordering multiple quantities

Wash at 30 degrees with a non bio detergent, on a low spin.

We recommend pre washing your denim before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight denim into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the denim, this is because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. We recommend doing the following to help this not to happen:

  • Wash your denim on its own for the first wash.
  • Sink your denim in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the denim already wet.
  • If you can break up your denim fabric into half this will help.
  • For the first wash use a delicate 30 degree cycle with non bio detergent on a low spin.
  • If any white creases develop ironing whilst still damp will help.
  • Do not tumble dry.

When you have made the garment we would recommend washing it inside out.

CAROLYN DENHAM AND RODERICK FIELD BEGAN MERCHANT & MILLS IN 2010 WITH THE INTENTION OF BRINGING STYLE AND PURPOSE TO THE OVERLOOKED WORLD OF SEWING.

Style: The decision was made to put style to work in the presentation and packaging, as a language that would attract the very people that had hitherto overlooked sewing. Equally, they were determined to include the steadfast makers and menders who had continued regardless of current trends

• Purpose: in supplying patterns, fabrics and tools that allowed the creation of a desirable functioning wardrobe. Merchant & Mills offer a viable, wearable alternative to the increasingly indistinguishable options of the high street.

Merchant & Mills continues to grow steadily, evolving and developing as experience and ideas demand. Carolyn and Roderick now travel the world in search of unique and beautiful fabrics, finding aesthetic and practical inspiration along the way. Merchant & Mills products are stocked in the world’s most respected outlets and the company has successfully collaborated with London’s V&A Museum and Alexander McQueen.

New patterns and products emerge, never rushed to market, but slowly developed to be exemplary, desirable and pragmatic.
Their ethos is to respect the roots of sewing, from trade to home dressmaking, as we enable and inspire more people to find the satisfaction of simply making. To this end, they have published three instructive, illustrated books.

Carolyn Denham has a degree in Fashion Design and has worked in New York, Italy and London.
Roderick Field is a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery.
