Our Raw Denim is made in Los Angeles, CA. USA. We use American denim from Cone Mills. It is 13 0z. and has not been laundered or altered in any way. If you decide to launder these jeans expect them to shrink about 1" in the waist and 2" in the length. We recommend you have them dry cleaned or spot cleaned by hand. If you feel the urge to machine wash them, please use cold water and has little soap as possible. Then air dry them and allow them to soften up again by wearing them. Cheers!
