The 7.5 oz. INDIGO HERRINGBONE is sourced from Imatex in Italy. Instead of the usual vertical pattern, this fabric follows the herringbone in the horizontal direction. It is light weight and therefore perfect for the warmer days, or where denim is not allowed such as the office. This fabric will fade just like denim, but already has a soft touch and is pre-washed with just water to reduce all shrinkage. The fabric is 100% cotton.
