A Japanese company is making jeans out of a blend of sugar cane and selvage denim.
They are Sugar Cane Jeans and are uniquely Japanese denim made from — you guessed it- sugar cane.
The cane used is Sweet Sorghum, otherwise known as Sweet Millet. It’s a type of grass grown all over the world for making a molasses-like syrup and animal feed. The Sugarcane jeans that feature this fiber have a faint sweet smell and may have occasional woody tufts poking out of the fabric!
Sugar Cane Jeans used to be a highly guarded Japanese secret but today the brand is attracting global attention. They prefer to use the vintage term “dungarees” in preference to the term “jeans” to describe their product:
Sugar Cane Jeans are cut from original and truly outstanding Japanese selvage denim. Japanese selvage denim is arguably the finest in the world. In simple terms this means that the cross thread goes back and forth during the weaving process.
Ok Where can I my Sugar Fix??
