BRUT® DENIM PROJECT
MADE IN FRANCE 225€
DENIM PANTS MADE IN FRANCE
We collected and repaired 9 vintage machines from around the world to make the best denim pants in France.
The heritage in the denim community is very strong. That’s why, in order to respect this tradition, we spent more than a year working out all the details and we were ready to launch the final production. Unfortunately, the head of the shop caught COVID 19 last week. He is now safe and sound, but has decided to slow down and gradually retire… It will take us a long time to reopen normally.
More than ever, we have decided to invest in this workshop created 37 years ago and the pre-order is the first step to take over the workshop and continue to produce locally in Paris! The profit generated by the sales of the pre-order will be used to associate and invest in our workshop on long term basis . Following the Covid situation and the long periods of closures that we lived, it seemed important to us to refocus on own collection.
For us it is essential to keep the independence of our workshop to avoid the classic production chains (Portuguese, Italian, French mass production which often leads to more standardized products).
For example, our re-work project from vintage fabrics would be impossible in a classic workshop where everything is calibrated. If the raw material is not in rolls cut by a laser machine, the workshops give up… We don’t want to give up because we want to continue to think and make our clothes locally, on a family scale.
Our jeans are handmade one by one in our workshop in PARIS. They are not imported from the other side of the world, they are sold at a fair price because we are the exclusive resellers. We do not want to be resold by others.

” When right hand twill is washed and dries, the fabric twists to the back of the leg. In mass market denim, leg twist is less prevalent. This is the case because these companies skew their denim in the opposite direction of the weave when its woven. ” HEDDELS
For us it’s part of the beauty of every vintage levi’s we collect.
