Visual, inventive and textural, 496 Fabric Lab is capitalizing on the denim fashion trend choosing to showcase new fabrications on bomber jackets, tops and trench coats.

The mill believes the denim sweatshirt is a key item going into Autumn/Winter 2018-19.

496 uses double beam jacquard weaving techniques to create double layer jacquard denim. Meanwhile, other styles feature hand cut threads and 3-D effects.

See-through denim, or what the mill describes as “denim lace,” adds an airy feel to the category.
