Freenote Cloth Portola Taper - Unsanforized Single Rinse 13.25oz. Japanese Denim
The Freenote Cloth Portola is exactly what you'd expect from a great-fitting, modern tapered jean - the top block is more relaxed and tapers down to the knee and leg opening. But what you might not expect is the fabric on this version of the Portola.
The fabric starts out as 13.25 oz. unsanforized denim with an indigo warp and blue weft that creates a deep, beautiful inky blue. Then the guys at Freenote decide to give it a single rinse, which does two things. First, it causes the fibers to swell and become more dense, resulting in a jean that is closer to 14 oz. after the rinse. Secondly, it rids the denim of much of the processing chemicals and allows the natural beauty of the indigo to release and shine through. What's left is a jean that starts out as a deep, dark inky indigo, but with wear and time, the natural core fibers will show through creating some incredible contrasting fades. (Last two images show how this fabric will fade in with wear)
