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 pen pouch 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 slim pen pouch is outfitted with a heavy-duty zipper, heavyweight indigo-dyed denim, a leather zipper pull, and strong, skilled stitching. The zipper is embossed with "BIG JOHN" in stylized capitals and a classic Big John logo patch has been stitched onto the front.
The pouch measures 7.5" long by 2.4" tall by 1.6" wide. It's big enough to hold a dozen pens or pencils, or other small supplies like sharpeners, 6" rulers, and tubes of watercolor.
