The Stor
The Denimal is a hybrid. Conceived through an act of scientific- and magic megalomania. Born into the
world of the undead. Living in the hills of "Puebla de Mala Muerte" in Peru. Ready to protect and serve at all times. 


This is where life as we know it ends and our story begins. We don't exactly know who or what they are. All we know is that 75 years ago a special Intelligence Force was sent to that very part of Peru to investigate in case of abduction. They got kidnapped by gene-manipulated creatures and never returned. Still, to this day nobody dares to look for the lost souls. 


Only at nighttime the Denimals become active. When it is as dark as it gets and colours don't exist. This is what Black and White represent. The Neon Green stands for the artificial, quasi-scientific sickness that goes on in the old wooden shack in the hills. The Denimals' world is morbidly engrossed, rusty and dark. Full of excrescences we have no clue about on
this side of madness. A place where you come innocent but will not leave the same.
01. Main Logos
Both logos, built out of chains and bared wire, equally symbolize imprisonment and control.
1.1 Male
1.2 Female
02. Front Button
The metallic button is engraved with the logo of the female and male Denimals.


03. Back Pocket Rivet
The metallic rivet is located on the left back pocket and engraved with the sub-logos:  crossed barbed wire for the female Denimals and crossed chains for the male Denimals.
04. Size Label
Sewn in the inside seam of the pants, the size label is designed as a loop so it does not only communicate technical specifications but can also be used as a way to hang up the pants..
05. The Icons
On every waistbandpatch you will find two icons. One in the bottom left, and one in the top of the right corner. These icons deal with either the circumstances under which the Denimal was conceived, or with the realm it lives in now.
06. The Denimals / Waistband Patches
The main part of the visual language is the waistband patch. It comes in two variations:
Embossed leather or printed cotton. Each style of pants stands for a different Denimal. The patch tells the story of everyone of them. The text column on the left sums up the circumstances, while the column on the right talks about each Denimal specifically.
