Raleigh Denim Transplants Its Workshop to West Chelsea

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Most of the exhibits scheduled around the International Contemporary Furniture Fair are about—duh—furniture, but the "America Made Me" pop-up in West Chelsea is the rare ICFF event that also involves fashion. North Carolina's Raleigh Denim has teamed up with Bernhardt Design on a cutting table inspired by the ones used in their denim factory. To promote the collab, Raleigh is bringing its entire workshop to the Wanted Design exhibit, an ICFF showcase on Eleventh Avenue.

For three days, you'll be able to watch the denim-making process as it unfolds, and check out the jeans on hand-carved mannequins by Scottish designer Jephson Robb. You can't buy anything at the pop-up, but you might walk away with free jeans: The Raleigh folks are planning multiple giveaways of their product, which usually runs $250 to $300.
