Denim Washes

ACID WASH

The acid wash process requires washing the denim with bleach-soaked stones for a marbled finish.

BLEACH

Bleach is used in the finishing process to lighten the color of denim or give it a lived-in look and feel.

CAST

The underlying tones in indigo dyed denim. Depending on dye or technique, denim can have a variety of casts, like red, green or yellow.

DISTRESSED

Distressed jeans feature sanding with sand-paper, fraying, slashes or rip-and-repair details to create a lived-in look and feel.

FINISHES

Any treatment to jeans after they’ve been cut, sewn and washed to give them a special effect. Common finishes are whiskering, bleaching, and stonewashing.

GARMENT DYE

Placing an entire finished article of clothing into a dye bath for a well-worn, vintage-like appearance.

HAND SANDING

Hand sanding with sand-paper is a process used to create destruction details normally achieved through wear and tear after many uses.

INDIGO DYE

Indigo dye is used to give denim its rich and natural blue. Through regular washing and wearing, fabric dyed with indigo will beautifully age, developing unique characteristics.

RESIN COATING FINISH

Resin coating is a finishing technique that gives jeans a rigid, crinkled look and feel, sometimes also wax coating.

SHIBORI

Shibori is a Japanese dyeing technique that involves binding certain sections of cloth and dipping them in indigo dye to achieve a tie dye-like pattern.

STONEWASH

Stonewashing is accomplished by washing denim with volcano pumice friction stones to achieve a lived-in look and feel. This step occurs during the finishing process.

WHISKERING

Faded horizontal lines that many jeans have along the thighs or wear points for a perfectly well-worn look. Typically lines are drawn with san-paper on the finished jeans and then stonewashed.
