This Companion Denim Joel 12N Colour Core comes in our Joel Slim cut in the photos but can be made in 3 of our different cuts, or even with special measures by request. If you are unfamiliar with our fits, take a look at our fit guide.

Joel 012N Colored Core, a classic 5-pocket model with a very special twist due to its colorful core of the warp yarns.

This is one of the rarest selvedge denims we have come across and will surely produce some out-of-this-world fades.

We are very proud to have been able to obtain the very last available meters of this denim, coming from the famous Japanese weaver Nihon Menpu. The weaver has confirmed this as discontinued denim and have no intentions of producing it again in the future due to its high cost and production difficulties.

Unique Denim

The denim is a true rare one. The core yarns of the warp are pre-dyed in different colors before being dipped in indigo several times to achieve a very deep blue.

Rainbow Fades

As the indigo on the surface fades, the core tones will start to pop up, producing a unique and beautiful rainbow fading effect.

Custom Jeans

If you want to unleash your creativity with jeans designing, this denim is also available in our custom jeans section under the reference D19.


Companion Denim Jan “Omaha” raw selvedge denim are cut, sewn and finished by our small team of master jeansmakers.

Our workshop is located in the heart of Sabadell, a town with a rich tradition in textiles production, in the metropolitan area of Barcelona.

We use a mix of both vintage and modern sewing machines that provide the highest quality and most reliable stitchings for jeans making.

Companion denim is built on the values of quality, durability, honesty and respect for the environment.


The principle is clear and easy “wear as much as possible, wash as little as possible”. The more you wear your jeans, the better they will look.

Following this principle and washing your jeans after 6-8 months of wear should already show some nice fadings and strong character.

Wash the jeans inside out with mild soap and in cold temperature (maximum 40ºC). No bleach, chlorine, or other chemicals.

Do not use tumble dryer, hang dry instead.
