Frequently Asked Questions

Who makes Tanuki denim?

A brand surrounded by mystery, Tanuki doesn't have any main office or headquarters. Instead, the people involved are skilled artisans spread throughout Japan who have worked together to create a product they believe speaks for itself.

What is special about Tanuki denim?

Tanuki work with Kibata (Japanese raw denim) and their concept is to bring back vintage fabrics that were appreciated for their texture but are no longer available. The fabric uses low tension weaving with slubby yarn to create a uniquely textured denim that looks and feels unlike anything else on the market.
