In celebration of unity between Japan and the West African country of Cote d’Ivoire, Japan Blue Jeans have collaborated with the Ivory Coast to create a special pair of jeans. JBJ and Cote d’Ivoire wanted to keep the jeans simple, stripping away details that might detract from the jeans’ unifying elements. The leather patch is made of a supple cowhide which displays the JBJ logo and also reads ‘100% Cote d’Ivoire Cotton’.
On the inside of the jean, you’ll find that the pocket bags have been screen-printed with silhouettes of Japan and Africa. The left details the characteristics of Cote d’Ivoire cotton while the right details the characteristics of the Japanese production. The selvedge is the most apparent display of unity and contains the colors for both the Japanese and Cote d’Ivoire national flags.

Think of Japan Blue as the younger brother of the more high end Momotaro Jeans. Both are owned by the Japan Blue Group operate out of Kojima, Japan, use the same fits, and source their denim from Collect Mills. But Japan Blue has a lower price point and a more experimental/zanier take on making raw jeans, with a variety of fabrics including a knit denim set to premiere later this fall.
