About EL Canek

 We are EL Canek.
Japanese unisex denim handmade by Masayuki Kanatani in Kojima.
Following 愛 (passion) since 1996.
EL Canek,
is a Japanese unisex denim brand handmade by Masayuki Kanatani near seaside in Kojima. Since 1996, we have been following our passion for creating high-quality denim products.
Our design philosophy is simple, minimal, and functional. We believe that denim should be versatile and easy to wear. Our garments are designed to be timeless, with classic silhouettes that never go out of style. We believe that simplicity is key, and we strive to create garments that are both beautiful and functional.
To achieve an authentic, vintage look, we use vintage sewing machines to produce our denim.
EL Canek is committed to creating a good life together with its customers, and it shows in their attention to detail and craftsmanship. Kanatani designs and hand-makes all of the jeans and other items with great care and love, ensuring that each piece is made with you in mind.

Our denim and coverall items come with a record patch that can be customized with a date. We offer to engrave a special date, such as the purchase date, at no cost to our customers. It's our hope that this personalized touch will let you enjoy the evolution of your item over time.
We invite you to discover your unique pair of 'nurturing' jeans.
