Dutil is hosting a creative trunk show on November 18th, 4-6pm, to celebrate the induction of Freenote Cloth to Canada.

The brand is purely ‘Americana’ sourcing everything from rivets to zippers and threads in America – and jean material from Kuroki Mill, Japan. Check out their premium craft denim garments at the upcoming launch.
