4 expert tips on how to care for your denim

Bathtime?
  • Take everything off - except your jeans. Wear them in the bath and let them get soaked. The denim will shrink to your body for a perfect fit, softly scrub them with the bath soak for a gentle wash.

  • Put your denim in the freezer.
  • Fold it up, put it in a bag and pack it next to your ice cream for 24 hours. The cold temperature kills the bacteria and any odours too.

  • Wear it.
  • Spray it. Use a water spray on your denim when you're wearing it. It will mould to your body and create unique markings tailored to you.

  • Air dry your denim.
  • Indoors or outside, whatever takes your fancy. But airdrying helps to retain the shape over a long time.


  • But our favorite tip? Live in your denim. Wear it to work, on your bike, at a party. The more you wear it, the more unique it becomes to you.
