Founded in 1984, Kapital was named after its place of origin, the denim capital of Japan, Kojima. Evolving from a sewing factory with a devotion to handcrafted objects and craftsmanship, the brand takes inspiration from traditional clothing and workwear from around the world. Bringing together traditional Japanese weaving and dyeing skills with heritage production techniques borrowed from vintage Americana, Kapital offers a fresh understanding of a well known and loved aesthetic.
As a brand it is their mission to give back to the world what they have so graciously received, but with their own Kapital touch. The plaid shirts, khaki parkas and straight leg jeans that make up this collection are everyday pieces, rooted in tradition, that will soften and age with the wearer, building character and adding to its heritage.
