The process of creating destroyed denim is an art. It takes expertise, craft, and an artistic eye to make a worn-in denim with a natural and authentic look. G-Star has skilled denim craftsmen using innovative techniques by hand to create a premium destroy finish.
Step 1. Raw
All premium destroy denim begins as pure,
raw denim - completely unwashed and untreated.
Step 2. Base Treatment
Carefully crumpled, the denim is washed with enzymes
and stones to create a marbled effect.
Step 3. 3D Wrinkling
The denim is modelled on a mannequin, then dried and baked in an oven to embed permanent, 3D wrinkles and structure.
Step 4. Abrasion
Selected areas are hand brushed with sandpaper and sprayed
with a natural ingredient to create surface abrasion.
Step 5. Hand Finish
The denim is gouged by hand, then repaired with stitching
and inner patches for strength and durability.
The result is truly unique denim, each piece is distinctive
because of the craftsmen and the process that created it.
