Heaviest Denim In The World 33.14 oz
SOSO’s Super Heavyweight 33.14 oz, or 939g, indigo redline selvedge is woven on the vintage Chinese GA1515 shuttle loom, one of the first generation shuttle looms ever produced for the Chinese denim industry. Woven from 100% Xinjiang cotton, which has the same quality as Zimbabwean cotton.
The denim is so thick it took the whole factory an extra day to tune the machinery to be able to produce this denim.
The fabric has been rope dyed which, is believed to be the best possible indigo dyeing method for yarn. It holds a dark indigo hue with amazing and thick texture and a clean redline selvedge ID. The warp is composed by three piles of 5s yarn and the weft is composed by two piles of 5s yarn. The warp density is a massive 48 per inch. While Weft density is 19 per inch.
Producing one pair of the 33’s takes our extremely skilled tailors (that are in the right mood to fight and twist with such a heavy fabric) around 1-2 days per pair.
Other details when creating this pair is our 33 edition patch made out of a 4 mm special veg tanned hide.
Inside you’ll find a a new print with our 33 oz Swedish viking Sten – The breaker of legs.
The denim is already sanforized, so the shrinkage is almost non-existing.
