Mott & Bow was founded for the nonconformist, he who wants superior quality at a bold price.
Why do premium jeans cost $200? Because the few companies that truly understand denim were conceived before ecommerce was widely adopted. These old brands go through multiple sales layers for their product to reach the final consumer (resulting in the consumer massively overpaying for the product).
Using the finest denim fabrics from the best mills in the world and applying the manually intensive artistic processes in the laundry, we transform the denim and make it look effortless. Our design philosophy is simplicity. With a 32-year denim heritage, our experience is second to none, and we’ve decided to start Mott & Bow to bring premium jeans directly to you at $96.
The finishing process, both dry and wet, separates experts from novice denim makers. A lot of the cost of a premium jean is attributed to the amount of artistic labor intensity in the finishing process.
After sewing, each jean is an empty canvas ready to be worked on. At Mott & Bow, with our +30 year denim expertise, we handcraft every detail of your jean and make it look natural.
To learn more about the art of jean making (I assure you, you'll be amazed), follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Tumblr. You can also read more in the "Wash Names" section of our Kickstarter Profile below.

The inspiration of the brand comes from the streets of New York City. As a tribute, we are naming each denim fabric we offer with a street from NYC that has a special meaning to us. Stay tuned for our website, coming in February, to learn why we chose Mosco, Bleecker, and Bedford as our initial fabric names.
