Thanks to Momotaro's obsessive attention to detail, they have become one of the most reputable denim brands in the world.
The name, Momotaro, is born from a famous Japanese folktale, in which a boy born from a giant peach grows up to save his village from marauding demons. The pink selvedge and inseam are an homage to the peach in this story, and the signature battle stripes represent the war flag the boy carried into battle.
Momotaro is the main denim manufacturing division of the Japan Blue Group, which was born in Japan’s denim mecca, Kojima. Momotaro has full control over the process behind their products, from conception to production, giving the brand an unparalleled amount of creative freedom.
