Looking to the true authenticity of woven denim, SPIRIT mimics and reengineers the original look of authentic denim optically and through touch, with the invisible benefits that creora® spandex/elastane can bring in terms of fit and control. There is a dustbowl denim feel, touch is dry, textured or chalky through naive yarn structures that give irregular to the inclusion of alternative fiber companions including wool and linen.

Multi blends feature, but the emphasis of this direction is focused on sustainability, as eco friendly outlook comes through, perfect for the inclusion of creora® eco-soft, low heat settable spandex/elastane perfect for cellulosic blends. When incorporating synthetics for a hybrid blend consider recycled nylon and recycled polyester, even on the cotton front there is a need for recyclable sources including recycled denim yarns.

Flaws and irregularities are welcomed, adding to the unique tactility, raw appeal and optical surface effect that is desired. This isn’t perfect denim by any means, this is denim that is engineered to replicate the true origins with the added advantage of creora® spandex/elastane
