Does anyone know how manufactures achieve a Vintage wash look. I've just received my samples from China and although I'm very pleased with the quality and make of the garments I feel the garments look 'new' rather than vintage. Any ideas?
manufatctures achieve a vintage look using an enzyme wash, it is referred to as bio-polishing, it basically takes away the pills that are on the cotton fiber, it makes the shirt really silky and smooth feeling, like an old shirt would be, you can achieve a raw vintage look using potassium pomengranate, its kind of nasty stuff so be careful, i thinkyou can pick it up at pet stores, they use it to clean out aquariams and ponds, it is used to destroy algea i believ you can also achive a vintage look on 100% cotton shirts using salt in water and letting the shirt soak for three days or using apple vinegar and let the shirt soak for 10 hours, if you have a washing machine that you dont care about you can wash shirts with rocksalt
