The process of stone washing began towards the end of the 1970’s, putting denim garments together with the pumice stones into the washing machines.
As the wash drum rotates, the garments are repeatedly pounded and beaten by the stones, abrading the fibers and the indigo color on the denim fabric. The result is a vintage and worn look on brand new garments.
However, the sole use of pumice stone produced many disadvantages:
The enzymes produced by Garmon open new possibilities by increasing the variety of achievable finishes while reducing both the environmental risk and the washing machines wear.
Garmon Chemicals' auxiliaries for stone washing gives a natural look to jeans and denim garments, maintaining high contrast on abraded areas without damaging metal parts (buttons, rivets, etc.).
Furthermore, Garmon’s enzymatic stone wash process eliminates all the issues related to the transportation, manual labor and disposal of the pumice stones, reducing the impact on the environment and on the industrial laundries' workers.
