Denim Club proudly presents "handloom" denim - an eco-friendly and sustainable - variety of denim, produced using ethical and sustainable material and methods. The Handloom Denim Initiative by Denim Club is a step in the direction of sustainable clothing and socially responsible fashion, which has made available an innovative product line which has all these years lived only in the imagination of fashion designers. At the same time, this initiative by Denim Club is also a small step towards preserving the Indian culture and helping the weavers in keeping alive their traditional skill and craft and ensuring their livelihoods. The handloom denim developed by Denim Club has a very low, almost negligible, carbon foot print.
The entire process of making fabric from yarn is hand-based, involving hank dyeing, hand sizing, hand reeling, hand warping and hand weaving.
The handloom denim is made out of 100% cotton yarn, and is offered in two basic varieties, based on the type of yarn used for producing fabric, one being handloom denim made out of mill-made yarn, and the other being made using hand-spun yarn.
The handloom denim fabric made out of hand-spun yarn is called "khadi-denim".
The handloom denim fabric offered by Denim Club is woven on the traditional hand-operated looms, and has all the characteristics of hand-woven fabric. It comes with a very soft hand-feel and the high breathability makes it very comfortable to wear.
The fabric comes with the much sought after "clean edge" or selevedge, which is formed on shuttle-looms when the single continuous cross-thread (weft) returns from the edge of the fabric.
The "selvedge denim" produced on the handlooms is undoubtedly the perfect material for exclusive, vintage category jeans and jackets.
The handloom denim offered by Denim Club also distinguishes itself by being 100% chemical free. The color used for dyeing the warp yarns is extracted from natural sources, like, the leaves of a eucalyptus tree, and pomegranate rind.
The extraction of color from these sources, and also the dyeing of yarn, is done at normal temperature. The colored fabric, thus, is completely free of hazardous chemicals, and is safe for the human skin.
We also offer hand-made denim in which the warp has been dyed with natural indigo.
