This season, our Levi’s® Made & Crafted® collection features an exclusive “Made in Japan” capsule with pieces constructed from premium Japanese fabrics. Employing time-honored techniques and expert precision, these seasoned craftspeople have elevated denim into an artform, with each garment a work of art for the canvas: you.

True denimheads know what’s up, but if you don’t: Japanese denim dates back to when Americans sent old shuttle looms to Japan during the WWII era. Japanese craftspeople largely operated these looms by hand rather than automation, giving the fabric that much sought-after varied texture. This inimitable process and the incredibly rare machines are still used in Japan to this day. And the garments resulting from these techniques are, quite simply, the best of the best.

Kaihara Textile Mills Co.

We continued our long-standing tradition of working with the world-renowned Kaihara Denim Mills. Crafted using those prized vintage shuttle looms, their selvedge denim is highly coveted the world over.

For Spring/Summer 2022, we present to you some of our most beloved silhouettes, constructed from selvedge denim in a range of colorways. Each garment is marked with a red metallic sun inspired by the Hinomaru, the Japanese flag.
