The Flat Head weaving their fabrics, who doesn’t like seeing that?
Yeah yeah, the video is already a month old but perhaps one or two of you have missed it? The Flat Heads founder, Kobayashi-san, walks us through the weaving of some of the brands’ shirt fabrics. Fantastic stuff. Not every day we get a glimpse into how our favorite brands, like The Flat Head, weaving processes.

If you want to hear more about The Flat Heads craft and the Japanese denim scene in a bigger sense I highly recommend checking out Weaving Shibusa.
It’s a great documentary made by David Leisher on proud Japanese craftsmanship and love of denim.
The Flat Head puts out some of the most marvelous stuff on the market. I throughly enjoy my flannels. There’s no pics of them on the blog but you can take a closer look on a pair of the 3005XX jeans or the wabash shirt.
