In the wet process, pumice stones and sodium hypochlorite were the conventional solution. Next step was the local bleaching and there was the wizard potassium permanganate. Last stop was the tint bath with direct dye stuff and higher amount of water. Denim fabric is certified with STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®
