The NC-011 are cut from the same pattern as the Blue In Green No. XX-013 jeans. The yarns are Black Warp x Weft Woven (not over dyed) with Indanthrene dyed yarns.
The NC-011 Black,(No Change-011 Black) features a cotton selvedge denim with the unique characteristic of retaining its Black color through repeated wash and wear, while resisting significant color fading. This was thought to be useful for those who would prefer a pair of black denim jeans that would not fade to a grey color, common with black denim jeans.
Indanthrene is a water insoluble dye material that retains its color with repeated washing, wear and distress. Furthermore, Indanthrene has shown resistance to sunlight exposure, and in most cases, acids and chlorine bleach. Indanthrene dye is commonly used in Military uniforms due to it's high degree of color fasting and it's ability to withstand extreme exposure to tough weather climates. It’s also used as pigments in high quality paints and enamels.
The NC-011 denim shares the same left hand weave and smooth texture of the XX-011 denim and will still show slight signs of color falling and distress as the cotton wears thin. However, the color will not fade away to a light grey or white.
