About

Our story
Denims Originals is a collaboration of two friends. Back in 2012, me and a friend created a new footwear brand. This was not just a regular footwear brand. We both shared a passion for quality denim and unique footwear. So, we decided to combine this into Denims Originals. 

We started with one (unisex) model in 2013. Within a year we had a webshop running and our shoes were being sold in 10 retail stores in the Netherlands. Featured by major fashion blogs like Denimblog.com, TheDenimGuy.com, Denimology.com and more..

We registered ourselves as an official trade mark and we were busy with new collection for Spring/Summer season 2014. We never expected that this all would happen. However, we were still students at that time. We could not invest all of our time into the company and therefore, we decided to put the company into hibernation until we were both graduated.

Now, in 2015 we are! We still feel positive about what the future of the brand holds. The idea is still kind of unique, because most footwear brands have one or two denim models into their collection.. But another real denim footwear brand, focusing on the best denim, does not yet exist. Over the years, we kept close contact with our factory in Portugal, because they still have high hopes in this project.

Why we are here?
We want to relaunch the brand and put Denims back on the streets. Honestly, we cannot do this without your help. We can maybe launch one model again from our own funds. Therefore, we decided to start this Kickstarter project.

What do we need?
In order to re-launch the brand, we need funds to bringing the company back to life! We will create a new colletion consisting of 3 different models (male only). This collection is yet to be produced. We do not have any prototypes, only sketches.

With Amsterdam being 'Denim Capital of the World' we believe that everyone should have faith in how the outcome is going to be. With so many denim lovers out there, we have enough inspiration to create a unique piece of Denims for all those passionate denim aficionados.

How we are going to do it?
If we reach the Kickstarter goal, we will re-launch the brand with a small collection of 3 different models and everything that is involved in running a footwear brand.

Denim used in the collection:

Indigo, Selvedge, Light Denim.

Handmade in Portugal
Denims are produced in Portugal by skilled craftsmen, trained in the craft of tradition. Italian denim fabrics, handmade in Portugal. We care for quality, attention to detail and good materials. Denims Originals - Made in Europe.

Note: Because the company is currently on a hold, we do not have a website. We decided to not invest any money in a website for now. Only when the Kickstarter projects is a go, we will be back online soon.

Our Facebook page is still up, but without any activity on it.

Also our Instagram is still out there: instagram.com/DenimsOriginals

Risks and challenges

Productions delays are possible risks. We only want the very best. We want to source the best denim for the collection, however this can sometimes take more time than planned.

A challenge is to create Denims that our backers will absolutely love. Because they are no visuals of them yet, it is maybe a hard decision to back us up, however, let yourself be surprised in life.
