Kohzo successfully combines environmental awareness and well-researched technology to create luxurious high-end denim with rock star appeal. Produced in ultra limited quantities primarily in Japan from rare and natural materials such as hibiscus, bamboo, pineapple and Kohzo, a paper made from the Japanese eponymous paper mulberry tree and tinted with 100% natural dyes of indigo, vegetable, natural mud, fruit and charcoal.



KOhZO is developed on a philosophy combining tradition, naturalness, environment awareness and tomorrow’s technology. The main creation and innovation are focused on fabric material, construction design and treatment. The most important issue for the denim specialists is to create a product that is not only beautifully designed and well made, but is also respectful towards nature, traditions and the people involved. 

KOHZO reflects a new philosophy.
What we do is totally different from existing denim.
