The Slim Straight 12.5oz 'Budokan Black' Stretch Japan Selvage

Fabric Notes:

This was a great find due to the fact that there's just not a lot of double black stretch selvage being produced. This one is a 12.5 oz 98% cotton, 2% Lycra double black stretch with black sulphur yarn dye in the warp and a black reactive dye in the weft. Translation = these will fade like your indigo selvage except that the fill yarn (horizontal yarn) is black instead of natural. The result will be a killer faded grey with jet black fill. The construction is a RHT 3 x 1 weave using an even yarn with minimal slub which gives the face of the fabric a much more uniform aesthetic. Classic red selvage iD.
