Zimbabwean cotton grown with the blessings of the great nature of Africa. There were many difficulties before Full Count met this Zimbabwean cotton. That's because the jeans of the early 1950s, which we feel are the best, have a unique smoothness and suppleness to them. In order to express the ultimate wearing comfort, we create denim fabrics using various cottons, and while worrying about the gap between the ideal and the ideal, we repeatedly develop.
Currently, double cropping (harvesting twice a year) is the mainstream for cotton, and harvesting is basically done using a large machine. It is said that using a single machine is about 80 times more efficient than hand-picking. I'm here. However, there are various problems when harvesting by machine. There is a disadvantage that the original goodness of natural materials is erased for efficiency.
Cotton is usually produced and harvested with an emphasis on efficiency, but unlike Zimbabwean cotton, impurities such as cotton dregs are removed by hand-picking each crop in a single crop (harvest once a year) that takes plenty of time. It will be harvested without damaging the fiber quality by human hands while removing Of course, the production efficiency is not good, but the fibers of the cotton harvested in this way are thin and long, so it is possible to make soft, thin, strong yarn that is loosely twisted. In addition, even when the harvested cotton is turned into yarn, only water is passed through so as not to damage the cotton, and no pretreatment with chemicals, which is commonly done, is done, so that the oil content of the cotton itself is not lost. will do so. For this reason, the cotton is not burdened in the processing process until it is made into yarn, so it is possible to create a very elastic and soft yarn.
As a result of trial and error, such as dismantling vintage jeans, unraveling the threads, and comparing the fiber length under a microscope, cotton is the most attractive feature of full-count jeans. From the harvesting of cotton to the processing of thread making, we have arrived at the ideal material, Zimbabwean cotton.
We have been using Zimbabwean cotton since 1995, when the brand was established, as it is the best quality material for creating jeans that are ideal for Fullcount.
Fullcount Denim Quality – FULLCOUNT
● 13.7oz Zimbabwean cotton denim * Thread count #7 x #7
Made of 100% Zimbabwean cotton, the fabric is fluffy and soft, and has a moderate amount of elasticity, making it stress-free to wear.
When weaving denim with an old-fashioned heavy cloth loom, the weft is woven quickly back and forth against the tight warp. I'll take my time and dig in. As a result, compared to other denim, the fabric is thicker, plump and softer.
This softness gives the fabric a stretch that blends in well with the skin, giving it the ability to absorb and expel perspiration. Even if you sweat, the inside of the jeans will not get stuffy, and you will be able to wear them comfortably.
During dyeing, the cotton is not pretreated with chemicals after it is picked, so the oil content of the cotton itself is not damaged, and the fibers are not damaged and comfortable to wear.
As a characteristic of discoloration, natural discoloration like vintage XX.
It features a large natural vertical drop without emphasizing the bite and beard, and the overall gradation is whitish.
With the deep trust, understanding, and cooperation of our craftsmen since the brand was founded, we believe that jeans made from this fabric, which is woven with optimal tension, will bring out the full appeal of Full Count. These are my ideal jeans.
● 15.5oz Zimbabwean cotton denim * Thread count #6 x #6
With the brand concept of "the best everyday wear", as a result of continuing to search for the ideal comfort, the ideal jeans are made of 13.7oz fabric.
On the other hand, 15.5oz is the 15.5oz that was born to meet the needs of the times that require a clear and sharp color fading and firm comfort while still maintaining the brand concept of comfort. You can feel the softness and elasticity that you cannot imagine from conventional heavy ounce denim that ignores comfort and is just thick.
Compared to 13.7oz, it feels a little stiffer and rougher at first, but after a month of wearing it, it becomes a thick and soft denim with a unique texture that cannot be experienced with other denim. Although the 15.5oz is a thick fabric, it is slowly woven by skilled craftsmen on a heavy cloth loom just like the 13.7oz. It is much more comfortable to wear than other fabrics. Of course, it has excellent water absorption and quick drying properties, so you can wear it without stress even in the summer.
And the number one feature is the color fading that comes out clearly by dyeing it with a special dark indigo. It is rough in a good way, with a sharp hit and beard, and brings a sharp aging effect. In particular, the bite around the thighs and the back of the knees, which are easy to rub, is easily emphasized, creating a powerful beard and honeysuckle. The feature here is that it changes to a light blue gradation instead of white. The 15.5 oz Zimbabwe cotton denim is made possible by the comfort of the full-count fabric, even though the color is clearly faded.
