When all the jeans were blue. Now the denim texture can be of any color: from black to pastel. This depends on the color and concentration of the dye, as well as on the range of manipulations to which denim products are subjected.

White denim fabric is obtained by acid washing (“wash with snow”).

Dirty blue color material acquires after discoloration. At the same time, beige or greenish shades appear.

“Double Color” is a technique with which a deep, rich and bright blue color is achieved. Earlier, in order to achieve such a blue color, the yarn for the base material was dipped into a dyed red twist once instead of the usual six, now — just increase the concentration of the dye.

Wearing jeans – the goods are sewn from the outside to the outside.

“Sea jeans” after acid washing become very bleached, and they should also be torn.

“Worn jeans” have the effect of washed, faded, worn trousers. To do this, they are washed with pumice and sand treated. Krasas is removed from certain places (as a rule, this is the bottom of a shirt, knees and pockets), and the fabric becomes softer.

Print jeans fabric has a plant-like or geometric pattern, often in counter colors. More related to children’s fashion.

Pinto jeans – fabric, bleached with spots. It first appeared in 1969, as a result of a curiosity. Then, as a guard, I drowned the warehouse of the Cone Mills factory. Millions of meters of cloth were wetted, and to dry them immediately there was no possibility. Then it was decided to unevenly pass through the fabric through the binder so that it would lose color in spots.

Shot in jeans – jeans are shot through with a shotgun or are strewn to holes. The goal is to achieve specific breakthroughs in various places.

Violet-blue color – indigo with a hint of color, the classic “Libyan”.

Black denim fabric is made on the basis of black yarn. Over time, it fades to a dark gray color (“pepper and salt”). Since the 1950s, these jeans have been promoted to the Wrangler market.

“Black, fading to blue” is a color that appears as a result of long interlacing processes. As wear comes, black jeans will be turned into blue ones.
