Stonewashed jeans[ edit ] Stonewashed jeans are jeans that have been treated to produce a faded, worn appearance.
This is usually accomplished either by washing the jeans with pumice in a rotating drum, or also by using chemicals to create the appearance without the use of a rotating drum.
The expanding cost of importing pumice stone from ItalyGreece and Turkey led to extensive mining of pumice deposits in California, Arizona, and New Mexico, triggering a negative response from American ecologist groups. Stonewashed jeans were a popular s fashion trend, before commercial acid wash denim discussed below was introduced in the s.
Claude Blankiet with American Garment Finishers from Texas promoted the use of cellulase enzymes in the finishing industry. Cellulase is produced primarily by fungi, bacteria and protozoan that catalyze the hydrolysis of cellulose.
Since the enzyme decomposes cellulose fibers this enhanced the characteristic appearance that the jeans have been abraded with stones and eliminated or considerably reduced the usage of natural pumice stones.
Selecting the most suitable type of enzyme and their application for ageing jeans was the key to success. American Garment Finishers used a new cellulolytic agent patented in by Novo Nordisk from Denmark  because of its safer effect on cotton fiber.
Other finishers used an acid side Trichoderma fungi enzyme, cheaper and faster acting, but resulting in excessive fabric tear and a back lash because jeans pockets were lifting off.
California surfers and members of the s counterculture prized Levi s and other jeans that had been bleached by the salt water due to their authentic, "lived in" appearance.
For many surfers, this process simply took too long, so they sped up the process by soaking the jeans in diluted bleach and some beach sand.
Simple chlorine bleach and muriatic acid were readily available at the time and still areas they were used to sterilize swimming pools.
One of the first companies to sell "pre washed" jeans as they were then calledwas Guess inc. Other abrading materials such as marble sand or expanded glass foam were also used as an alternative to pumice stone see stone-wash.
Specific areas of the jeans, shirts and jackets were also acid-washed by spraying a solution of bleach or potassium permanganate to simulate a wear pattern. Extremely popular worldwide from to the mid nineties, it is still used by fashion designers today.
Fans of glam metal favored frayed "destroyed denim," and jeans that had been bleached almost white. Snow washed jeans, which retained more of the original blue dye, remained popular among grunge fans during the mid s, until they were eventually supplanted by darker shades of denim associated with hardcore punk and hip hop fashion.
