“The fact that we make our own stuff is pretty unique. We use all U.s.sourced ma­te­ri­als,” Eric says. His small com­pany sells not only hand­made jeans, but also denim gear (like the duffel on the pre­vi­ous page). Eric says the same qual­i­ties that make denim so pop­u­lar to wear trans­late well into home decor. “It’s a very func­tional fab­ric. Levi Strauss re­ally nailed it. And it keeps get­ting rein­vented. It’s such a rich look. It gives you a warmth and tex­ture that’s very ap­peal­ing. Plus, it looks nicer as it ages.”
