About This Product
Big John is the very first Japanese denim brand, manufacturing jeans since 1965 and still revered by denim enthusiasts today for their extraordinary selvage. While American denim brands moved production overseas and allowed quality to decline, Big John stuck to the original ethos of denim made for hard wear and long life. For the last half-century, the company has improved and refined its signature denim, invested in skilled Japanese workers, and developed a reputation for the very highest quality. Big John still makes denim with traditional shuttle looms, despite their lower speed, because they are able to produce a stronger weave.
This cleverly designed pen roll is made in Japan with the same materials as Big John jeans. Fabric remnants from jeans production are given a second life by these smaller products made on the same production lines, reducing waste and environmental impact. This pen roll is outfitted with a Big John jeans button (made by famous Japanese fasteners manufacturer YKK), a heavyweight white denim exterior, canvas sailcloth for the lining, pockets, and tip-protecting flap, and a wraparound blue cord to keep it rolled. A classic Big John logo patch is stitched onto the outside.
The roll measures 7.5" x 8.9" laid flat, and rolls up to various diameters depending on how many pens are inside. The four small pockets and one large pocket can accommodate about a dozen pens and pencils in total.
