Takumi is the Japanese name for artisans, and this limited range at display, is designed by craftsmen of Japan who seek perfection and pay lot of attention to minute details that gives garments a distinctive and individualistic look. The jeans are made using selvage denim which is woven on antique wooden shuttles in Okayama.
