Okayama is one of the prefectures in Japan. And Kojima area, in Okayama, has been known as a place of textile production in Japan because the area has abundant natural resources for the manufacture. That's why it started producing its own denim.
There are so many denim companies and factories in Okayama. When you say Okayama denim, it contains all of them. Simply, denim made in Okayama.

Why is it so popular?

It became popular worldwide soon after Okayama started creating denim. It's because they only produced handmade jeans and denim stuff at first. Since jeans were very popular in America as well, mass production became common in America at the time Japan just started handmade producing.
Needless to say, handmade goods are better in quality. Moreover, the skills of textile production and dyeing of Okayama is even better than the American handmade jeans. Famous brands like Louis Vuitton or Chanel use Okayama denim for their products.
