Keeping colour in Jean Machine jeans
Keeping the original base colour in your Jean Machine jeans depends on how long you wear them between washing. Leave them as long as possible without washing to slow down the colour loss process. The recommend wash is on a low heat or quick program in a washing machine. To dry, hang your jeans indoors and out of direct sunlight.
How to fade Jean Machine jeans
Speed up the fading by washing in warm water, in a long washing cycle and tumble-dry at a high heat – but be aware that this may cause the seams to twist and weaken. The ideal wash is a regular 30 degrees cycle, regular spin and no tumble-dry. If you want to get the fit immediately back into your jeans, wear them whilst damp and walk them dry.
Raw Jean Machine jeans
Jean Machine Raw jeans are made from denim that has never been washed. Generally, jeans are always rinsed in water before they are sold so the denim shrinks to its final shape. As raw denim has never been washed, Jean Machine Raw jeans will shrink about five percent during a wash. Get them back to their original size by pulling the legs when damp and wearing them to stretch them out.
Some denim experts believe you should never wash Raw jeans, or at least not in the first 6 months. Raw jeans should be washed inside out and in cold water. Wash by hand, in a cold shower, or on a low wash program in a washing machine and without any washing powder. To dry, if washed by hand, in cold water or in the shower, place them between two towels and press them until they are drip free.
If you decide to leave your jeans unwashed you will get a characteristic worn look, with higher contrasts in the places which distress the most. If you wash your Jean Machine Raw jeans once a week you will not get the same worn effect, but it will achieve a different look with a more faded colour. Whichever way you decide to treat your Jean Machine jeans it will be your own personal and distinct journey
Denim is a fabric that will live with you and will naturally fade and change with time depending on how you treat it. We at the Jean Machine hope you will enjoy the journey with your Jean Machine garment, and live life to its fullest.
