Kunitz is cut from 14-ounce indigo denim that's woven in Osaka on antique looms that give each pair an authentic vintage feel. Kunitz comes in two versions, “Raw” (unwashed) and “Single-Rinse” (light rinse wash). We recommend the Raw finish and that you wear it for 8-12 months before your first wash. This allows for your jeans to develop unique folds, creases, and abrasions in the right places. If you want a touch of softness with a “broken-in” feel then go with our single-rinse version.
