Thai-made selvedge jeans.
Founded about 18 months ago by Vishesh Sachdev and Nikhil Rattanaphas, whose families have long histories in textiles, this growing denim label hopes to “showcase Thai craftsmanship to the world.” Aside from their small Terminal 21 store, Nama Denim’s jeans are also stocked in Sydney, Australia, and Montana, USA.
These jeans are made only with selvedge denim sourced from Okayama, Japan—“the denim capital of the world”—and handcrafted at their workshop on Sukhumvit Soi 33 using vintage sewing machines. The designs are clean, no-nonsense, but built to last.
Due to the close proximity of the workshop, the store also offers alteration services for no additional charge. The duo has more plans to expand abroad, and is also gearing up to launch a premium line in November, 2014.
