Born 40 years ago in response to the mass production boom of 1979, Studio D’Artisan is one of the original players in the reproduction movement with Japanese manufacturers that embraced shuttle loom selvedge denim production as the western world adopted larger, more efficient, and lower quality loom technology. D’Artisan brings French design and workwear influence to Japanese handmade craftsmanship with one-roof production in Okayama, Japan. Specializing in shrink-to-fit fabric, SDA produces great fitting denim with simple artisan detailing that has a hardiness, irregularity, and texture that capture the essence of jeans, resulting in a clean, unique, and special product. The SDA ethos treats warp and weft as harmonious elements and implements careful garment construction down to the pocket, arcuate, patch, and button. Always innovative, Studio D’Artisan honors the foundation of its production philosophy while exploring style and developing new fits that keep their original craft alive.
