BDD's founder Lennaert Nijgh launched the first ‘made in Japan’ jeans in 2013, with a mission to combine his love and passion for Japanese denim and craftsmanship, with contemporary European fits. These jeans are cut, sewn and finished in Kojima, Japan, made from the finest Japanese selvedge denim. Every detail is there for a reason, and has its own purpose and function, without making any concessions on quality or design.
In 2016 the brand has been expanded with the BENZAK - EUROPEAN MADE product line. This was brought to life to develop high quality basic jeans and other garments without the addition of expensive detailing, focusing on the three most important factors: good fits, quality fabrics and clean constructions. Fabrics are sourced from around the world, but the entire line is cut and sewn in small ateliers in Portugal. All close to home, and supporting European workers, BDD can proudly say this line is European made.
