Fade February Fact #22:
There is no right or wrong choice when it comes to choosing between Japanese and North American raw denim, but each has its own set of interesting details. Today we’re going to touch on one of the most prestigious North American denim mills; Cone Mill.
Since 1895 Cone Mill has been ruling the denim manufacturing market.  By 1905 their White Oak plant had established the company as one of the biggest indigo dyeing operations in the world and that continues today.  By this time they were making denim for  Levi’s Strauss & Co. There are many brands that we carry at Dutil. that uses  Cone Mill to manufacture their denim (for example, Tellason, Railcar Fine Goods, and of course, Dutil.’s own Quintessential. series).
