Technology & Process

Traditional denim processes such as sandblasting are unhealthy and being phased out of the industry. Laser treatments such as this one from Jeanologia supersedes traditional processes, to give fabrics a vintage appearance by burning the garment with a laser. The technology provides faster production cycles as well as resource savings in waste, water and energy.

How does it work?
Designs are customised and stored within a data base. The laser reads the design and then burns into the fabric at various intensities to alter the effect of shading. Products can be further treated through traditional wet wash processes, or with an Ozone treatment

Increased efficiencies:
Production speeds are cut from 20 minutes (sandblasting average) to between 30 seconds – 3 minutes per garment.
