The importance of Japan in the denim industry can never be underestimated. Though Japan never had huge productions , it always played an important role in giving directions and leading denim industry creatively. Though Japan has only a few mills like Kaihara, Kuroki etc doing real production in Japan, all other production units having shifted overseas, the fabrics of these mills are still highly sought after the world over. Besides, Japan has some local denim jeans manufacturing – again not in huge quantities but – small quantities and niche products. These jeans use the fabric made in Japan and also import some fabric.
