Sarah Yarborough and Victor Lytvinenko Founders, Raleigh Denim Workshop
Homegrown may be the best way to describe Sarah Yarborough and Victor Lytvinenko’s foray into the world of crafting high-quality denim, and what began as a personal quest to create the perfect pair of jeans has turned into the bustling enterprise Raleigh Denim. The pair has spent the last decade sourcing denim from local mills, bringing an authenticity to the industry that is far from common.
Filled with the whirr of vintage textile machines and master jeansmiths at work, Raleigh Denim Workshop is devoted to conscientiously producing small-batch, handmade jeans and clothing. Their factory and flagship shop (including its conversation-worthy paper plane display on the ceiling) is in the heart of the Warehouse District, a growing concentration of galleries, studios, restaurants, nightlife and innovative businesses located a few blocks west of downtown Raleigh’s core.
Surrounded by the friends and family who helped their business take off, the Raleigh area is more than home to Sarah and Victor. It is a community of artists, makers and craftsmen who have turned it into a thriving destination that has global inspirations with a decidedly local feel.
