What style is more classic or iconic than a pair of blue jeans? On today’s show, I’m joined by Victor Lytvinenko, one half of the husband-and-wife team behind Raleigh Workshop. Founded in 2007 as Raleigh Denim, the line of jeans for men and women gained a fast reputation for its quality construction: each pair is made at their small workshop in Raleigh, NC. Now a globally recognized brand, Victor and Sarah have expanded the line to include a wider range of garments, applying the same level of dedication and craftsmanship to each new piece they develop. On today’s show, Victor talks about learning the craft of jean-making from their Raleigh, NC apartment, the historic process by which they construct each pair of jeans, the types of denim fabrics and fibers they use, some tips on denim wear and care, and more.
Plus, a great playlist mixing old and new tracks from artists like Real Estate, Chuck E. Weiss, Pixies, Arc Iris, Sylvan Esso, and more. So join us as we celebrate the blues with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
