Denim is a hardwearing cotton fabric made using a twill weave, creating a subtle diagonal ribbing pattern making it different from canvas or cotton duck.
First produced in the city of Nîmes in France, denim was originally called the serge de Nîmes – the word denim is an English colloquialism of the French term: “de nim.”
Please be aware differences in colour are possible. Colour may be lost by washing, wearing & daylight. Please wash this fabric separately.
Do not store under lights or in windows – it will fade over time. Colour may be lost by washing, wearing & daylight. Denim dye can transfer onto lighter colours including upholstery. Before wearing clothes made from denim they should be washed several times in cold water to rinse out any loose dye that may rub off, It is also advisable to turn denim clothes inside out so they don’t rub against other items, and wash with other dark colours.
