Momotaro Jeans

Kojima, Japan

Denim Makers

Located four and a half hours west of Tokyo, lies the denim capital of Japan, Kojima.  Far from the tourist routes that bring people from temple to temple, Kojima is a pilgrimage site for craftsmanship.  Under the finely tuned hand of master weaver Shigeru Uchida, Momotaro denim creates products from everyday work wear to hand dyed, hand woven jeans that possess all of the history and delicacy of fabric production that Japan has to offer.
