The Studio D’Artisan Mother Earth is made in an adapted Relaxed Tapered fit with a true mid-high rise, featuring a roomy seat and thigh with a strongly tapered leg and a narrow hem. This extremely limited and unique 14 oz. unsanforized Japanese Selvedge denim undergoes an ancient Ming Dynasty "Hani" dyeing method that uses completely natural processes and extracts from clay soil. To represent the birth place of man to Australian Aboriginal peoples, this edition leverages soil material obtained near Ayer's Rock that results in a pink cast weft that combines with a deep indigo warp resulting in a denim that will fade with the delightful irregularity provided by nature. Utilizing this Mother Earth dyed yarn on one of Japan’s original 50-year-old power G3 looms made by Toyota yields a unique 14 oz. unsanforized Japanese Selvedge denim with an indigo warp and natural clay cast to provide a new take on true antique style fading. This vintage G3 shuttle loom runs at extremely low speeds and requires hand operation to function, resulting in a lower tension fabric with slub yarns that have a rough texture like the denims of yesteryear’s workwear, with an inconsistency that softens quickly with a unique patina. Made in SDA’s refined Relaxed Tapered fit, these jeans have a higher rise and more drastic taper to the leg that accommodates thicker calves while maintaining a narrower hem. This rare and intricately produced low tension shrink-to-fit denim will develop vintage-style fading while forming and draping nicely to the body of its wearer after the first wash or soak. Topped off with specialty Studio D’Artisan touches like a commemorative embossed leather patch and herringbone twill pocket bags, combined with signature details like embossed copper riveting, a blackened plated brass button fly, and a chainstitched waist, seat, and hem, these jeans are your first step on a journey into the past by way of present styles, transported to you by a standout 40-year-old producer of heritage denim.

The Studio D'Artisan Mother Earth is an unsanforized, “Shrink-to-Fit” denim, and we suggest sizing down roughly 0-1 size from your Actual Waist Measurement (Body). Our rule for yielding the best sizing result with unsanforized denim is: Use Our Method to compare your best fitting denim, find the closest match in waist, and then purchase the next size up to account for the natural shrinkage (roughly 1.5” in the Waist and 2” in Length) from the cold soak/rinse process before wearing.

We recommend consulting our Sizing Guide and using our Virtual Size Chart.
