Raw Denim brand- DK Shin
DKShin is a luxury men’s and womenswear denim brand that just launched their first collection. DKShin denim is made from Japanese selvedge denim. Selvedge denim refers to any type of selvedge that is made by means of using one continuous cross yarn which is passed back-and-forth through vertical warp beams. With this method it gives maximum stretching capabilities. This gives extra space for comfort that is hard to find in most denim products. Because of the stretch element, the jeans mold to the consumers body creating the perfect fit and providing unmatched comfort.
DKShin also supports sustainability with their free lifetime denim repair program which keeps consumers from overbuying products and reducing fashions global carbon footprint.
