The organization has  fought for the awareness and understanding of this deadly  process since autumn of 2010. Sandblasting gives a finished pair of jeans that fashionable  “used look”. Worn out areas lend the visual feel of a previous  (and perhaps more adventurous) life to what is really a brand new garment. The workers involved in  this process are exposed to extremely fine dust and fall ill alarmingly quickly, victims of deadly  silicosis. Thousands suffer from this dangerous lung disease in production countries like Turkey,  Pakistan, China, Bangladesh or Egypt.    At our laundry, we created the same effect by laser machine, or rather go back hand-sanding,  our jeans with enzymes. It’s effective and keep try our best to protect our environment in continuous.

Manufacturers are  keeping this classic on the fashion radar by stoning, icing, burning and drilling the beloved jean  to create novel and unique effects. There’s a new technology that is producing some amazing  looks on denim. With the popularity of special effects surging, it’s a good time to check-out  laser engraving.   Classic denim is constructed with a blue indigo warp and an un-dyed weft. Indigo, originally  derived from plants, is probably the oldest colorant used to dye textiles.  Indigo has also been thought to remedy an eclectic list of ailments including  cancer, depression and even rabies. Today, indigo is a synthetically produced vat dye that is bound to the fabric by  mechanical forces rather than chemical. Unlike other vat dyes, indigo has very little  affinity to cotton—making it perfectly suited for wash-down treatments.   The laser technology utilizes a beam of light, to produce a non-contact mark on the  denim fabric. When engraving denim, the laser burns away the indigo dye to produce a worn look.  Our company dedicated to developing and commercializing what it calls “laser scribing”. The  hand sanding a tremendous amount of dust is generated which can be detrimental to worker’s health. In the laser engraving process air contaminants are contained. The engraving process can effectively  mimic hand processes to create whiskers and worn areas with precision and consistency. Designs can be strategically placed anywhere on the jean—even over pockets, snaps and seams.  Patterns can be matched at the seams to create an all over design. The  number of parameters such as speed, frequency, power and spot size can be tweaked to produce different degrees of degradation, detailed effects and even holes. Laser engraving is faster than many conventional methods used to distress jeans.  Depending on the intricacy of the design, a pair of jeans can be engraved in minutes. Not only can denim be laser engraved, but pile fabrics as well. The laser burns away  the pile in selected areas leaving a permanent design that closely mimics an embossed  pattern. 100% cotton corduroy and velvet can be laser engraved to produce an impressive permanent design without the use of resins. In stone washing there is considerable wear and tear on the machines and water waste; however, in the laser engraving process there is no wear and tear and zero  water waste.   Regardless of what you call it—scribing, engraving or etching—this new technology offers  some amazing benefits, both environmental and aesthetic.     Click to see Laser Movie
