Blue Sakura : where legacy and craftsmanship merge into one

Japanese brand Blue Sakura was founded in 2016 in Okayama. Although it is a pretty young brand, it started conquering popularity among fans that favor both classic denim and fashion clothes.

 

 

The brand was founded by Shuji Ishibashi with the help of Whoval Inc. which has existed since 2009. Experience in various  types of manual post processing had been grounded in Whoval, making sure Blue Sakura covers these important details and designs through and through.  Blue Sakura is used to relying on traditions, quality and adherence to ecological standards in their manufacturing processes.

 

If you take a look at the Blue Sakura collection, you can note that the clothes produced by this brand were inspired by vintage fashion. However, they are designed with trendy silhouettes. Right here we can see both elements of the American legacy and especially Japanese original details.

Blue Sakura produces both jeans with raw selvedge and jeans with post processing that are made to last for a long time. All of their processes try to follow environmental rules, making it a great stand for the earth in the denim world.

During industrial washing, manufacturer uses stones which were brought from the south of Japan.

 

Blue Sakura also issues its own type of remade jeans. Jeans are washed manually until it becomes almost decrepit. Therefore, each pair of jeans will be original and individual. For those fans of raw denim who prefer to have their jeans in a non-washed condition,  you could try to branch out and differentiate your wardrobe with at least one pair of these special remade jeans.

 

But we definitely cannot call Blue Sakura as a sole jeans brand. This manufacturer produces high-grade men and women’s clothing collection as well. You can see T-shirts with beautiful prints  in each issue (Blue Sakura tries in every possible way to stress their origin from Kojima). Not only do they produce knitwear, oxford shirts, denim, multiple jackets but they also produce interesting clothes like kimono-jackets (jackets which are based on japanese original historical wear made of denim with sleeves up to the elbows.

 

Let’s take a look at Blue Sakura clothes we have at Denimio.
