Make own jeans by yourself project

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am Yosuke Kataoka, a product designer in Japan.

 

Our project is to make the world best jeans in Japan as experiencing Japanese culture. We are introducing the relationships between Japanese culture and jeans, traveling in Japan and jeans, and the world best jeans on the pages.

Here.


Visitors will be able to make their favorite jeans themselves, using the finest quality denim fabric.And we are going to collect funds through kickstarter in order to provide a place to realize this in Japan.


Our project is supposed to be released on May 31, but it depends on how the judgement goes.


If you have any questions, please feel free to question me.(I am Japanese and I am not good at English, so I do not know if it will convey to you.)

certainly one of the "more out there" ideas - a social lab...

I like the idea that "the best jeans" are those made by oneself.

Reading through the page, yes this is actually an interesting idea and business model. There are similar workshops for leathercrafting here, not sure about abroad, but I've never heard of anyone doing something similar for jeans.

Thank you your reply.

As a result of my research for three years I noticed that.

I taught jeans making for over 100 people in 3 years.

Yes, me too.

I've never seen this business model.

So I thought I should try it.

When the customer finished making jeans, the customer is impressed.

I am glad that.

yup, Blackhorse Lane Ateliers

probably not too far off - previously, a factory/workshop for 20some years - recently converted into a "community-oriented" project with pop-up restaurant. they collaborate with brands like Drake's to make small runs and offer workshops (Denim Masterclass hosted by Mohsin Sajid) to make your own jeans.
