Named after a Japanese folklore hero, Momotaro was launched in 2006 by Mr Hisao Manabe. From the outset, Mr Manabe’s vision was clear: no compromise on quality. His denim would use only the finest long-staple cotton, and only deep indigo rope dye to achieve the best possible fade. His workshops would use vintage shuttle looms to create a hand- made feel to the weave, and every detail would be hand-sewn. Mr Manabe wanted to set a new international denim standard.
This specific craftmanship in combination with a fine eye for detail sparks this new partnership with Oris.
