So, lets look at finishing of denim and garment outside the realms of tearing them apart. This means adding colour and worn in attitude stopping short of destruction.
What we try to achieve is a garment finish that begs the question - am I an original or a beautiful replica? We employ myriad techniques before dry or wet tumbling of 3D creasing, crushing, tagging, finishing garment edges with grinding and finally zinc oxide tinting and bleaching at strategic points of the garment. Sometimes even experts are fooled!
Unusual textured denim forms a perfect base to create a real worn in vintage garment. Although the 3x1 twill is the original denim fabric followed by the 2x1 lighter variant, piques and dobbies can be made to achieve the appearance of old miners' worn out clothing having become much coveted gender neutral garments in today's world of vintage denim hounds.
Iron oxide finish techniques achieve the original appearance of dirty denim - we take this to a higher creative level of actually burring holes in the garment as well as emulating the effects of scorch marks with black dye or holes to reveal orange weft looking like scorched holes.
Super creative garmenting design with old or new jeans creates new styles, helped by the use of all the rough and tumble, colouring and bleaching effects available to our experimental drive.
Lets use the jean in another context - it's fun, it's denim, it's Trashion!
