Stone Wash
Stone wash/washing is a textile manufacturing process used to give a newly manufactured cloth garment a worn-in (or worn-out) appearance. Stone washing also helps to increase the softness and flexibility of otherwise stiff and rigid fabrics such as canvas and denim. As the stones are used, they slowly disintegrate, reducing the severity of the stone wash effect over a period of time. The stones not only abrade the fabric but also gradually abrade the inside of the rotary drum.
