Born almost forty years ago in response to the mass production boom in 1979, Studio D’Artisan is one of the original Japanese manufacturers that embraced shuttle loom selvedge denim production as the western world adopted larger, more efficient, and lower quality loom technology. Regarded as one of the original players in the reproduction movement, Studio D’Artisan brings French design and workwear influence to Japanese handmade craftsmanship with one-roof production in Okayama, Japan. Using only vintage shuttle looms, the company produces pieces that have a hardiness, irregularity, and texture that capture the essence of jeans. The SDA ethos treats warp and weft as harmonious elements, and implements careful garment construction down to the pocketing, arcuate, patch, and button. Always innovative, Studio D’Artisan honors the foundation of its production philosophy while developing new fits and investigations into style that keep the craft and charm of their originality alive.
