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.

There’s a regular debate going on around here about how much of the work behind what we do should be shared. Our garments should speak for themselves of course. The fact is that our impulse to reveal parts of the process has less to do with marketing and more to do with indulging our own obsessions. We just really like this stuff and we have trouble resisting the urge to talk about it.
There’s probably something written on every posting in the website about worshipping tradition while destroying convention. What’s humbling is to see how much convention-destroying has gone on all along, steadily pushing the utility/workwear tradition forward. The place we learn most about that is digging through the rails of vintage shops and stalls. We get to do it all around the world which is probably the single biggest privilege or our jobs. It’s a privilege because of the education it provides, but even more for the people we get to meet and the stories we hear from them. These are the folks actually going into the countryside digging through old barns and abandoned warehouses looking for specimens that might be old but can strike us as totally new since they can sometimes reveal ideas we’ve never seen before. Little ideas we can pick-up on and try to move forward a little ourselves. Innovation to inspire further innovation.
We don’t want to horde these experiences or be guilty of a sort of gluttony when it comes to inspiration. So we’ll keep sharing the stories for as long as we can. We'll do it through the archives here in the Denham Garment Library section and we'll do it through our Cutter's Council postings as well. In this installment:
