RAW 

Color continues to perform in the denim stakes through a variety of applications from solid yarn dyed through to pigment printed on the face or the technical. There is a marriage between working with different levels of hues to creating unusual hands as a strong natural nuance features. Marbled effects, neppy surfaces through to cross hatch structures feature. There is an element of tradition as herringbone structures bring added definition to surfaces. Comfort stretch features incorporating a chalky touch.

This is very much destined to comfort stretch than super. Muted tones fall into this category and brushed surfaces add a super soft touch. Knitted denim also features ,mimicking the authentic look of woven denim, to the point that it is hard to distinguish from the real or the faux. Linen and wool with cotton/ creora® spandex/elastane deliver the ultimate in a collaborative natural source. Prints and stretch jacquards also feature taking on a more artisan look than previous floral applications.
