The garment is then heated in an oven to fix the polyurethane and is sponged ​​by hand. Finally, it is washed softly to clean the garment of any residual impurities and further washed with rubber balls, depending on the vintage effect you want to achieve. The rubber balls are an alternative to the classic stone wash which is made with pumice stone for denim.

Compared to the stone, the balls do not consume during treatment and perform a more uniform abrasion. This type of washing, slow and complex, is excellent in terms of product yield which takes the form of a vintage garment.
