Dawson Denim is the result of 20 years experience working with Denim. Created by Kelly Dawson and Scott Ogden, they produce all the products by themselves in them workshop in Brighton on the South Coast of England.
They have started the Brand in 2012 with the goal to create a collection of denim workwear inspired from the Past but with today improvements.
The Brand is really creating beautiful pieces that will last long in your wardrobe.
We especially love the Deck Pants.
A Pants inspired by the trousers worn by the US Navy from the 1930’s to the 1940’s. The Pants is made from a 10 oz indigo dyed neppy selvedge, a copy of a pre 1930’s quality – Woven on Japanese Imamura looms developed in the 1920’s.
One day, while being at the barber, he found himself in the seat of the barber’s chair, the end of the ritual in sight, when the barber asked that familiar question we’ve all had to answer – Would you like a little product?
Thinking nothing of it, he gave the thumbs up and promptly disappeared into a cloud of hair spray before reemerging, gasping for enough air to thank his barber and ask how much he owed.
It was shortly thereafter, walking to the subway high on aerosol fumes, when Zac had a moment of clarity:
Why do we put things ON our bodies that we would never want IN our bodies?
He scanned the aisles of the first few stores he passed, overwhelmed by the number of products that contained unnecessary synthetics and chemicals like petroleum, and it was then and there that Empire Apothecary was born.
From the kitchen of his NYC apartment, the first batch of Traditional Pomade was created, complete with hand-stamped paper labels. What started as a hobby soon turned into a full-time business, expanding to offer a full range of unisex grooming products and premium soy wax candles.
The products are great (we love the candles) but above all, they have teamed up with Loren Denim to create a limited run of candles colored with organic indigo !!!!!
