The best thing about raw denim is that you can customize it in so many different ways. From the number of times you wear your jeans before washing them, to the way you finally decide to wash them; the choices are endless.
We were lucky enough to receive some photos from someone who decided to saltwater wash his jeans.
Saltwater rinsing is just one of the many ways you can care for your raw denim. A certain favourite company of ours suggests to wait as long as you possibly can before doing the saltwater rinse. This ensures that the denim fabric and indigo dye will be adequately broken-in before “baby’s first bath”. The second step to the saltwater rinse, is to rub your denim in the sand and re-rinse in the ocean. Finally, in order to avoid crunchy jeans and itchy skin, a freshwater rinse is suggested.
