You’ve bought a lovely pair of raw denim jeans. As they get older and start to fade you want to create your own fade lines rather than have the washing machine do it. If you want the best looking jeans wash at 3 to 6 month intervals. Follow our washing directions here. Don’t just stick them in the washing machine with everything. For best results drip dry, don’t spin, and definitely don’t tumble dry.
Will my jeans shrink?
The denim we use is raw. This means that it hasn’t been washed and hasn’t been through chemical colour-fast treatments. It has been sanforized though, which means that shrinkage on first wash will be minimal – less than 2% in length and 1% in width. This means that leg length will shorten by half to three quarters of an inch. Waist shrinkage is negligible. Jeans may tighten a little in the waist, but will loosen after wear. They will only lose half an inch in length.
Is this eco denim?
Working with Italian denim masters, Candiani, the world’s most Eco denim mill, our selvedge denim has the highest environmental credentials.
At all stages of manufacture, environmental sustainability is at the forefront of the selvedge production with BCI cotton, microplastics free dye process, solar power and water recycling just some of the process that are used.
