Video: How Raleigh Denim Hand-Dips Their Indigo Trousers

North Carolina bleeds blue. The state is the home of the venerable Cone Mills denim manufacturing company, whose products are implemented in numerous brands from meticulous Japanese reproductions to tried-and-true American companies. Raleigh Denim is another company proud of its Carolina roots, and has been putting out great-fitting no-nonsense jeans for the past few years.

One of their big breaks in the industry was getting picked up by Barney's New York, and their partnership continues with a small run of hand-dipped indigo chambray trousers. In this video, Susan Oliver Fennell goes over the painstaking process of hand-dying denim and the desired color consistency sought from the process. Check out how they do things down South. [Hypebeast]
