British brand The Broken Teeth have undertaken an interesting project with the help of photographer Samuel Bradley, which will see them document the aging process of denim through a somewhat unconventional method.
Inspired by a previous project by Denim Hunters, TBT took to their native Sussex countryside, choosing a remote woodland spot, miles from the nearest town, burying a pair of Edwin’s Sen Selvedge denim beneath the earth. During their time in the ground, before eventually being unearthed in June, the jeans will be at the mercy of earth, water, wildlife, and nature itself.
The burial has been expertly documented by Samuel Bradley – you can check out the ‘before’ images below – and we look forward to seeing the second part of his documentation when the jeans are eventually retrieved. Follow the project and find more from the brand at The Broken Teeth.
