How to Care for Raw Denim
Nothing ages finer than raw denim.
Raw denim has long been a favorite of any jean/denim fabric buff. Why? Well for a myriad of reasons… One of the primary reasons being the natural fades.
Raw denim is not for your average pedestrian, though. It takes some work and a little patience but if you put in the work, your raw denim jeans will soon become your favorite.
Here are some tips for wearing in and caring for your jeans —
- Wash them as little as possible – most denim nerds wear their jeans for at least 1 month straight (or 30+ wears) before even considering washing them. Over time, the bleeding/color transfer will stop, the jeans will mold to your body, and the beautiful fades will begin to appear.
- After a good break in period, if you need to wash your raw denim we recommend hand-washing them in a tub with a mild soap. Let them soak for a couple hours, wring them out and hang dry.
And there you have it, our brief recommendations for wearing in your wonderful, new pair of raw denim jeans!
