13.25 oz Cone Mills natural selvage denim
the legendary Cone Denim mill in Greensboro, N.C. has been making high quality selvage denim on antique shuttle looms since 1891. Cone announced the closing of their Greensboro facility last November, so we got our hands on as much of the last made in USA denim we could. it is bittersweet, but we are proud to be offer Catherine in an extremely limited run of some of the last natural selvage denim to come from Cone Denim's White Oak mill in Greensboro North Carolina.
AN INTRODUCTION
100% cotton, selvage denim for women
what is selvage denim? what is selvage denim?

selvage denim is woven using old-fashioned denim-weaving techniques; this particular denim was woven on antique shuttle looms in Greensboro North Carolina.

selvage looms were popular in denim weaving until the mid-to-late 1900’s when denim mills began modernizing their machinery as demand for denim was growing world-wide, by focusing on speed in manufacturing instead of quality. in the years since, American made selvage denim has become more desirable than non-selvage for two reasons: the nuance of the denim weaving technique itself and the commitment to quality from the mills producing selvage denim.

the few denim mills that have remained committed to the production of selvage denim understand and value the nuance and history of denim. and with that understanding comes a passion, as well as a self-imposed responsibility to make a superior product.

how does this fabric compare to jeans with stretch? how does this fabric compare to jeans
with stretch?

while stretch jeans are instantly flexible, readily stretching over your curves, a 100% cotton jean will learn the curves of your body over time and give you a beautifully personalized fit.

through regular wear, the points of highest tension (from bending, sitting and kneeling) will mold and conform as the fit and fabric work together to shape to your body.

what should i look for when i first try them on? what should i look for when i
first try them on?

if you are seeking a true fit, the first time you put on your catherines, they should be comfortably tight, this fabric will give ever so slightly in time.

a new pair should feel snug but not uncomfortable. keep in mind that this initial tightness will ease off as you wear them, as they will begin to give and take on your shape.

on the other hand, if you prefer a more relaxed fit from day one, they will be stiff at first, but should not be restricting in size.

either way, to ensure you get your desired fit, it is important to consider that rigid jeans relax over time and their form will not stay as they are at first wear. this is the inherent beauty of wearing a rigid jean.

the best thing you can do for your jeans is wear them.

when it comes to washing, there really is no wrong answer. we live by a simple rule: wear often, wash not so often. we’ve seen great jeans that are washed every few days or so. we’ve seen beautiful jeans that have never been washed.

we strongly advise against bleaching your natural jeans.
