- Fabric & Care
At 12oz, this medium weight organic cotton denim woven by Berto in Italy is soft yet durable, and just right to wear all year round. It’s a true workhorse fabric. And this denim is not shy of character either. It will only get better with age.
As the name suggests, we’ve given the jacket a rinse wash to bring out the deep indigo tones and to give it a softer feel, so it’s comfortable to wear from day one. After a lot of wear, this jacket will transform to a lighter shade of indigo and every fade will have been put there by you.
Please note that the Dark Rinse Wash denim is so rich in indigo that the colour is likely to run, so do be careful wearing with lighter colours.
Although you can machine wash at up to 30 degrees, when the times comes, we recommend hand washing in the bath, and then hanging to dry. If needed, iron or steam inside out to remove creases.

THE CARPENTER JACKET
Our seven pocket Carpenter jacket is inspired by the workwear that was designed to protect workers during the California Gold Rush in the mid 1800’s. Clothing designed at the time was functional, sturdy and reliable day after day. Unlike most clothing produced nowadays, those pieces were designed to stand the test of time. This boom time in America was sparked by one man. He wasn’t a mining mogul. He wasn’t even looking for gold. His name was James W. Marshall - a carpenter building a saw mill in the Sacramento Valley. It was there he discovered flakes of gold in the American River. Word quickly spread of his find. And the rest is history.
A TRUE BLUE CLASSIC
The fabric for our denim Carpenter Jacket comes from Berto, Italy’s premium denim mill based just outside of Venice, Italy. The mill opened in 1887 making tough sail cloth fabrics for boats that harboured in Venice. In the mid 1900’s they began weaving hardwearing workwear fabrics. Today, they have have combined their workwear heritage and 135 years of constant innovation to produce premium denim fabrics that are long lasting, easy to wear and get better with time.
