About It's simple. The Truth is in the Details. Worship Tradition, Destroy Convention.
Press Founded way way back in 2009, DENHAM will be a toddler for some time to come. As such we are deeply grateful to the media and event organizers below who have been helping us get the word out.
Garment Library Before we created we collected. But we collect not just to ACQUIRE. We collect to EXAMINE, ANALYSE, DISCOVER and to LEARN. The Denham Garment Library is the physical manifestation of our obsession with tradition and quality, providing deep and unique sources of inspiration for our design process.
Product Reviews Denham design, denim integrity. We look to the tradition from which denim emerged as a blueprint for developing the collection. Focused on quality and utility. We seek to add to the great tradition of iconic garment-types by challenging conventions the way they did when they first built pants out of tent-fabric, or slammed machine-rivets into clothing.
Service Co. When pure denim fabric soaks in timeless indigo dyestuff, the result takes on a life of its own. Part of the pleasure of blue jeans is the journey they take with you all the way from a fresh virgin pair to a perfectly worn-in and 100% unique wardrobe favorite. To get from here to there takes care and maintenance. That process should also be a pleasure.

It all started with a pair of scissors.
For Denham, but also for garment-making in general. Cutting cleanly through cloth with a knife is a tricky business. The breakthrough invention combining two knives on a pivot changed everything. That's one of the reasons for our seasonal obsession and one of the reasons we collect them in our Denham Garment Library.
For us scissors are a metaphor. The shape of Jason's first scissor inspired the Denham logo. They are an obsession, evidenced by Jason's personal collection as well as that of the label's design director, Liam Maher whose combined collection can be seen within the Denham Garment Library. They are as beautiful as bronze Brancusi sculptures and as dangerous as Mack the Knife. They record a shared history. They come from as far back as the Dark Ages up through the Era of Savile Row making pit-stops in the American Civil War as well as rural tailoring workshops in the Middle and Far East.
They are triggers for the artistic process as demonstrated by art director Ali Kirby's seemingly infinite illustrative variations. Grafted together into hybrids he has joined them with chainsaws, sickles and propellers and deconstructed them to create mechanistic mammoths, preying mantises and bald eagles as a 2nd metaphor that represents the brand mantra: "WORSHIP TRADITION . DESTROY CONVENTION".
They link us to our collaborators. Forming the basis of new work from respected artists and designers whose interest in the twin-blades is sharp enough to convince them to play in our sandbox for a time. They are our House Guest Artists.
They are a universal language. They bridge us across cultural boundaries enlivening our dialogs with scissor-wielding artisans from every corner of the globe.
