Stone Wash

What is Stone Washing

The process of stone washing involves placing denim into an industrial washer along with large stones.  The stones wear down the stiff denim fabric while it’s being washed to give the denim a worn in look. 

For acid-washed denim, the denim is placed in an industrial washer with pumice stones soaked in a chlorine water mixture.  The washing process will bleach the jeans and create the classic tie-dye effect of acid wash jeans.  Depending on the ration of chlorine to water, the denim can have a faded blue style or a bleached white style.
