Last weekend, I was watching a couple of keynotes from a few Trend Forecasting companies for Spring 2015 and one highlight of each keynote was Denim.
You may look at Denim and think, what else can be done to it, but you will be amazed to find out how much research goes into your jeans.
Just to put a couple thoughts out there:
Peformance Denim - this is the category of denim that is made to endure abnormal wearing conditions, for instance, Kurabo Denim (Japan) carries jeans that creates warmth. Yes, I kid you not!
The fabric is made of 81% Cotton, 11% Acrylic, 7%Cupra, 1% Spandex.
There is also a denim called Storm Denim from Cotton Inc, that has water repellent protection from rain and snow. Perfect for spring weather.
I will stop here because I can go on forever.
This video will take you to Mexico where they will show you how cotton is harvested all the way to the last part of the process - distressing the denim.
