Word on the street is there’s a new denim in town, and let’s just say, words on the street are words to live by. Meet the technical younger brother of the denim family: turkish denim.
You may be thinking ‘hold up – the best denim comes from Japan?’ True, Japanese artisans have mastered the technique of making authentic, heritage denim. However, the best technical denim comes from Turkey. Turkish denim may seem like it’s coming out of left field, but it’s been working its way up in the denim world for decades – and today is considered a world leading contender in the denim production game.

How’d This Happen?
Turkey’s been a country familiar with fabric production since, well forever. They’ve experienced a steady growth on denim when they shifted their focus towards it in the 1950’s. They were able to expand on its production with the collapse of the Eastern Bloc in the late 80s. However, in the last 10-years Turkey’s become a global player in denim production. The country’s top notch cotton, and its unique denim fabric blend are credited for its success.

Location Location Location
Turkey’s geography allows for lush cotton crops that grow in the Aegean Region. The cotton’s long-staple fibres are characteristically known for their natural shine and strength. Turkey’s ability to produce high quality cotton and geographic location between europe and asia are major advantages for the country’s denim producers and helped turn their fabric industry into a world-class producer.
