News & Events
We finished printing and production of the first two yards of our new “signature” printed twill fabric and we can’t wait to see it in person. The below image gives you an idea of the depth and detail of the artwork we are dealing with. It’s like a marine inspired Rorschach Test or something. Every time I look at the design, I discover something new. As it should be with every great piece of artwork. Keith (the artist) and myself are brainstorming on new items for the Spring & Summer 2015.
It’s been long time coming, but I finally received the much anticipated briefcase/ tote from The Jager by Northern Denim Co. line of leather goods. The briefcase is skillfully crafted by the Artisans of Obbi Good Label in Singapore. The leather is Horween Natural Essex leather that gives the collection a natural leather look that will age beautifully. I will not go into all of the details just yet, will save that for tomorrow. Instead today I wanted to share a pic I posted on Instagram yesterday. The picture nicely shows the current Jager collection. the duffel bag/ weekender has already traveled from Singapore to Malaysia, from Malaysia to Finland and back to Malaysia. The heavy duty leather is already starting to get character and I trust the everyday tote/ briefcase will get a character of its own soon enough. Stay tuned for more! (continue reading…)
Our bags are packed and we’re ready to fly off to KL after a deserving holiday in the lovely Finland (our home).
We’re in transit from Monday (28.7.) onwards for over 24 hours which means radio silence till our arrival on Tuesday (29.7.). All emails will be replied and orders processed upon our arrival.
Thanks for your patience!

We’ve officially launched the full details of the Jäger by Northern Denim Co. luggage.
The Jäger is the first line of hand made leather luggage by Northern Denim Co. brand. The bag is made of Horween Natural Essex leather, giving the bag a beautiful natural leather color. The luggage price starts from 680 euros (excluding shipping) and as with every other project from the Northern Denim Co., portion of the profits go to charity. The bag is produced in limited numbers and sold on first come first served basis. To order yours contact email@example.com.
We received a much anticipated parcel few days ago. Express mail straight from the Obbi Good Label, the craftsmen behind our latest design The Jäger by Northern Denim Co..
Production for the latest Northern Denim Co. project has kicked off or at least the production for the first leather luggage collection titled “jäger” produced by the artisans of Obbi Good Label. The duffel bag inspired by vintage Finnish leather luggage I inherited (read: claimed mine). The Natural Essex Horween leather looks amazing as does the brass hardware.
With the ever-changing algorithm changes and crude monetization of Facebook, the platform though formidable with its mass is no longer deemed suitable as our Nordic Denim House and especially Northern Denim Co. brands’ social media center of attention. As we are moving closer to “Facebook Zero” moment which means our postings will have ZERO organic reach, it is just viable to look beyond this platform as means to communicate. Just the thought that we would have to promote every posting to reach a handful of people is against the way we operate. We have not advertised our products or brands beyond our content published on social media and spread organically. Aside from few promoted postings, KOL collaborations and one print ad in the Heritage Post, which also was more of a content publication and not advert per se. But enough of that. The bottom line is, if you are on LinkedIn, FOLLOW US!
You can Find us by just searching Nordic Denim House on LinkedIn.
You can also FOLLOW our Northern Denim Co. project from on our Showcase Page.
It will be interesting experimenting on the “new” platform but more will follow so stay tuned.
Happy Labor Day everyone. Our doors are closed for the rest of the week due to the Labor Day holidays. Since the May 1st is conveniently on Thursday, we are taking rest of the week off to celebrate some family matters. That is the birthday of the First Lady of NDH.
It’s been like the best Valentine’s Day ever. Little present to Jeci Chao, picked up the kids from nanny early. Came home, fixed a proper dinner and spending rest of the evening sipping champagne and chilling with the family celebrating life. Glass of Hennessy, another glass of Taittinger and we’re all good. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. It’s not about the material gifts, but the company of your loved ones. Be easy everyone. I’ll continue watching cartoons with my boy. Peace.
Don’t forget to suit up for your big date! #suitup
