Heavy jeans. From the shuttle loom.
A true heavyweight. The 14.75 oz. denim
is woven for these pants in the
White Oak Mill on the old shuttle loom – the traditional way, which you can see
by the real selvages, the proof of its
weaving origin. The just moderately
loose-fitting pants are dyed in a very
dark, almost black blue hue.
Tellason. Highest quality from California.
Supporting Tellason, which has its
headquarters in San Francisco, are
Patella and Pete Searson. Both
bring a fair amount of experience with
them: before they started their own
business a few years ago, they had
worked for two decades as made-to-order fashion designers in the
clothing business and have since then
earned themselves a good reputation
with their own brand. Tellason follows
three ironclad principles: first, only textiles
from the USA are used, secondly,
they are always produced there and
thirdly, this is done with great care.
The Cone Denim fabric for the jeans
comes from the White Oak Mill in
Greensboro, North Carolina, which has
been weaving since 1905. They are cut
and sewn in San Francisco.
