Duties & Taxes

Do I have to pay duties & taxes on my order?

Our parcels are sent from our Hong Kong warehouse. Any customs or import duties are charged once the parcel reaches its destination country. You may be charged for handling fees and taxes as your order passes through customs. These charges must be paid by the recipient of the parcel.

Unfortunately, we have no control over these charges, and cannot tell you what the cost would be, as customs policies and import duties vary widely from country to country.

It might be a good idea to contact your local customs office for current charges before you order, so you are not surprised by charges you were not expecting. Grana is not responsible for any customs and import duty charges.

Japanese Denim

  • Hiroshima

    The Japanese have long been known for their fastidious attention to detail, and making denim is no exception. Infusing traditional methods with the latest cutting edge technology means they produce fabrics that denim connoisseurs rate the very best.

  • Soft, Strong and Unique

    All our denim is made using ring spun cotton. This traditional method produces soft and strong denim yarn. A lucky side effect of this is uneven yarn, which creates denim full of character.

  • Deep Blue

    Our yarn is then rope dyed, which is believed by most to be the very best way to dye denim yarn. This old-school method creates a stronger, deeper and vibrant indigo shade.

  • Iro-Ochi

    'Iro-ochi' is the Japanese term referring to the fading of indigo dye in denim. After ring spinning and rope dyeing, you’re left with denim that, once made in to jeans, will fade beautifully over time.

Our Journey

The Making Of

Turning the best Japanese denim into the best jeans in the world.

  • Rice Spinning

    It takes 5 times longer to make than it’s cheaper cousin, open-ended denim yarn. The fibres are thinned and spun into tightly twisted yarn that is stronger, softer and far superior to other denim yarns.

  • Rope Dyeing

    Next is rope dyeing. This is a time consuming process that first sees the yarns twisted together (like a rope). They are then continuously dipped into natural indigo dyes, and then oxidized.

  • Cutting & Sewing

    Fit and construction are important to us. Each pair is cut meticulously, so that they all have the same great fit we worked hard to achieve. Bar tacks, chain stitches, and rivets are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of long-lasting construction.

  • Washing

    This is where magic happens. We work with seasoned wash masters to ensure we get the perfect washes for you. From volcanic pumices stones to create wide areas of 'Iro-ochi’, down to subtle 'Atari' fading, everything is considered.
