Founded in 1998 by Tohru Nogami in Osaka, Samurai Jeans puts the emphasis on heavier more textured denims. Using low speed looms and skills perfected over generations Samurai Jeans creates a denim that is like a samurai blade itself: strong and reliable.
In addition Samurai adds a good deal of detail to their Jeans. Like the Selvedge ID on Samurai Jeans that feature a strand of silver thread which resembles a Samurai sword. Or the leather patch that often shows famous warriors or Incidents that influenced/determined the Japanese culture.
