What is raw denim?
Raw denim is real denim. Denim came to popularity in the late-19th century in the United States, and was a fabric for hard work. Miners, cowboys, surveyors all wore denim because of its toughness. In modern times, most denim you buy is not raw, instead it is washed and artificially distressed to create a worn look. Blue Delta’s raw denim is a throwback to the old days – a strong, durable fabric that is made to last and ready to go with you on any adventure.
