Paper Denim & Cloth was founded in 1999 and quickly became synonymous with fashion-forward denim styling and impeccable product quality. Launching again in Spring 2013 as a full collection we have continued our belief that utility and style are equally essential. When designing each seasonal collection, the focus remains on combining updated design elements, exceptional product quality, and a denim purists appreciation for authenticity and detail.
