Fade February Fact #21:

We’re all big fans of raw/dry denim, that’s why we’re doing Fade February, but there are many other ways you can wash and wear your jeans. Maybe some of you remember the 80’s? Acid washed jeans were quite the thing. Acid washing started in Italy in the 1980s. To get the snowy aesthetic, pumice stones are soaked in bleach and tumbled in a wash with the jeans. The washing technique is still used today, but the tailoring of our jeans has since evolved.
