The Denimhunters Creation Content Team

The site was launched as a one-man passion project by Thomas Stege Bojer. Over the years, many talented enthusiasts have contributed to the site and shared their stories.

Today, there are two members of the Denimhunters content creation team:

Thomas Stege Bojer – Editor-in-Chief

How it all began

Told by Thomas

The story of Denimhunters goes back to the autumn of 2010 when I wanted to know more about raw denim and why it fades.

When I got my first job in clothing retail back in 2007, I developed a strong passion for denim. I didn’t really know why, I just loved the stuff. And I wanted to know as much about it as possible.

The late 2000s were the heydays of denim forums. I always found them noisy and intimidating. The boldest and loudest leads the conversation. It didn’t suit my shy personality.

With the growing interest in knowledge about denim, brands and retailers realised they needed something to say when their customers asked about raw denim and selvedge.

Combining misconceptions and cheap sales tricks with the fact that few of the self-proclaimed online experts were professionals meant that a lot of the myths took hold and became common denim knowledge. I wanted to change that.

When I took a sabbatical after I got my BA in Communications in 2010, I worked full-time as a buyer for a clothing store. Without the obligations of my studies, I started what became my own personal denim education.

My sister-in-law suggested I should start a blog and call it ‘Denimhunters’. I found the name fitting considering the amount of time I was spending researching denim.

There were a lot of opinions but no truly reliable source to validate the facts. That’s what I wanted Denimhunters to be; something that could connect all the dots as a trusted source of knowledge about denim.
