The Gold Digger from Double Helix works is a wonderful example of Japanese craftsmanship.
Veg tanned , washed then aniline drum dyed a beautiful light indigo that will age more like a traditional denim jacket.
We are very excited to see the evolution of these.
INDIGO DYING HORSEHIDE
The popularity of denim-type leather jackets is very high, but what would it look like if a blue dyeing and fading effect could be expressed through horsehide? Relying on our enthusiasm, creativity and confidence in the unlimited potential of horsehide, Double Helix launched an exclusively-developed white core blue dyed horsehide in 2018, after more than a year of trial and development.
After repeated washing of the leather, the tea colour is processed into white, after which indigo dyeing is carried out, resulting in a beautiful, rich sea blue once it has been washed again. Over time, a fading effect of interweaving blue and white is seen, much like a denim jacket.(Thickness:1.3mm-1.5mm)
