Coating onto denims is recent technology. Initially developed for function but very quickly adapted to be used for effect alone. Coatings onto denim can be achieved both in the denim Mill where the effect is coated onto the fabric during the finishing process as well as in the laundry where the effect is either sprayed or printed onto the finished jean.
Coating effects of super glass shine, silver and gold, black leather looks and furred flocking are just a few of the effects that can be achieved in denim and jeans finishing.
Metallic coatings take different forms. Dull pewter coatings which lend themselves to wear and destruction thus creating a modern vintage appearance; crackled dull silvered coatings again rendering the garment old and worn in; high shine silver and gold disco denims are not just for christmas.
High shine in silver and other metalics also lends itself to super stretch skin fit super sexy jeans, so popular they are worn both day and night.
