Levi’s Made & Crafted Made In Japan Collection - Levi's Hong Kong

Every season, our Levi’s® Made & Crafted® collection features an exclusive “Made in Japan” capsule with pieces constructed from one of the most coveted fabrics in the world—Japanese denim. For fall/winter 2022, we present some of our most beloved silhouettes, constructed from selvedge denim in a range of rich indigo washes. Each garment is embellished with a red sun on the leather patch, emblematic of the Hinomaru symbol, the national flag of Japan. Secondary

Selvedge Denim

The finest denim in production today, selvedge is derived from the term “self-edge” denim. Known for its superior quality and tailored look, it’s easily recognizable by the self-finished clean edge, or the crisp fabric strip that runs along the inside of the outseam. This denim is created using traditional narrow-width shuttle looms, which produce tightly woven strips of heavy fabric that don’t unravel or fray. These shuttle looms are now considered incredibly rare worldwide, with near-antique status—and they’re still being used in Japan.
