Columbus, Ga.-based fabric manufacturer Denim North America has launched the Heritage Collection, a
line of denim that is reminiscent of the denim worn by American miners, sailors, ranchers and
craftsmen in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when pure indigo was rope-dyed onto ring-spun
yarn. The new line is being manufactured in Columbus.
Denim North America is celebrating the launch by distributing limited edition, handcrafted,
leather-bound wooden boxes containing fabric cuttings and a scroll timeline marking significant
dates in denim’s origins and development.
