New Made In Japan denim in stores soon!

The Japanese are generally accepted as the best denim craftsmen in the world. Weaving, production, washing, treatment; all done with the skill of a samurai and the grace of a geisha. These jeans are classics and made in the original authentic Japanese way.

To celebrate and share their craftsmanship, we have developed two special denims for Spring/Summer 2011 in cooperation with our Japanese friends. Both 100% made in Japan, created with utter passion, which is visible through the most beautiful details and finishing.

Each one of our Japanese denims bears a unique number. There are only 100 pairs of each so the one you have bought is very rare. The denim comes in a special Made In Japan box and a authenticity certificate. The denims will be available soon, we’ll keep you posted!

Gewoon

We at Blue Blood love high quality made products with a lot of attention to detail. For example, the way we make our denim is with the same passion as if we were prepaing a home cooked dinner for one of our best friends. When we do so, we use the finest ingredients. We will walk that extra mile to go to the most delicious bakery, the best butcher or that vegetable jeweler. When we come across other companies or people who share our fine taste for excellence we love to give them some well deserved attention on our blog.
“Gewoon “ is the name of a high end luxury caterer. “Gewoon” is the Dutch definition of  “ordinary”, “usual” and “common”. If this exquisite caterer is anything, it’s anything but common. Last week we drove past this interesting delicacy store window. Unable to stop then, I went to have a look yesterday. Even though it was after closing time the two owners were friendly enough to invite me in.

I immediately noticed the organic B_E_E products that we sell in our Blue Blood stores too. The owner then explained to me that all the delicacies they offer are actually very uncommon and obtained from different places all over the world. He showed me hand made chocolates from Barcelona, explained about the qualities of his imported cheeses and his companion then offered me home made organic pastries and Japanese seaweed crisps. Gewoon caters at large exclusive events. They claim that no demand is too outrageous and they can get you anything you ask for. They will take care of everything, location, hostess girls, fine silver cutlery and tableware, decorations and entertainment.

Gewoon is also a deli where they sell specially imported products and home made food. Each day their menu is changed, everything is 100% organic and made only of the finest quality.

Luxury companies such as Chanel, La Prairie and Cartier are a few of a long list that Gewoon has catered for.

So even though based in Amsterdam they are operating worldwide.  If you are lucky to be enough to be able to visit their store when in Amsterdam we recommend it.

Favela in the water

In a few days from  now our Willa is going on a trip to Brazil. In the light of that we decided it was cool to post some interesting info about Rio, where in Rocinha, 2 Dutch artists and friends of us have conducted a incredible project. Favela Painting.

They have taken the street and kids from the street to paint an enormous Japanese river flowing all the way down… it is amazing to look at and Willa is excited to see it first hand! The koi fish look amazing and from the pictures posted you will be able to grasp a slight bit how enormously this artwork is.

The painting they did was co-designed by the tattoo artist Rob Admiraal, and the artwork was featured on international news from CNN to Al-jazeera!

Willa will visit the slum herself and take pictures, which we will post here online of course! We are excited to see her findings and photos that she will take of her little adventure in Rio and maybe some other parts of Brazil…

You can check out their blog on their adventures and activities at: http://www.stupidtelligent.blogspot.com/
