For readers in San Francisco, Self Edge is holding the world premiere of ”Weaving Shibusa” this Saturday. Directed by Devin Leisher, “Weaving Shibusa” is about the niche world of Japanese denim and the people who make it. It has interviews with the creators of brands such as The Flat Head, Stevenson, and Iron Heart; owners of Marvin’s Vintage and BerBerJin (two of the best shops for vintage Levi’s); and some of the editors behind the Japanese workwear magazine Lightening.
The showing will be held this Saturday at Castro Theatre (located at 429 Castro Street in San Francisco). The screening starts at 8:30pm and there will be a post-party afterwards at a local bar (location to be announced). You can purchase tickets at Self Edge’s website, along with a copy of the film’s soundtrack and an enamel pin.
