Read on for some more very interesting details about the Japanese denim industry provided by Denimsandjeans.
Japan is one of the most inspiring country when it comes to denim. The way the Japanese have gone deep into adding their own distinct identity to this product in the last 5-6 decades is amazing. This gives the local grown Japanese denim a special flavor and touch. It is also a place where we can see how the traditional means of production have been preserved and perfected over decades.
However, not many people know that Japan is also the third largest importer of jeans globally after EU and US. with approx 175-180 million jeans imported in a year. This is because, though Japanese have some good local production, the same are much more expensive and many retailers and brandsimport their jeans from overseas.
In the first eight months, which ended August 2019, Japan clocked a total import of 116 million units of denim garments which is expected to reach up to 174 million units by the end of this year.
Japan is also home to amazing denim brands which bring some of the most unique products globally. Brands like Kapital, Momotara, Samurai ,Sugarcane and many others have created their own niche globally with their offerings not affected by seasons. There is lot to be learnt from these brands and that is why global designers travel their every year for inspiration.
