Studio D'Artisan has been weaving denim on vintage looms in Osaka since 1979. It was one of the most popular denim brands when the world fell in love with Japanese selvage denim in the '90s. A lawsuit by Levi's crippled Studio D'Artisan's distribution networks, but they are still widely considered one of the OG's of the denim game. Their jeans are still heavily sought after, and the fact that they're now harder to find has probably done nothing but increase their desirability.
