TELL ME ABOUT RIVET & HIDE
Rivet & Hide is a store with locations in the heart of London and Manchester as well as online. We specialise in rare selvedge denim and clothes and accessories that complement it, made by highly skilled artisans from Japan, USA and the UK.
DO YOU ONLY SELL DENIM?
We stock a range of shirts, t shirts, jackets and boots by our iconic denim brands. As well, we sell fine handcrafted leather goods from select suppliers, to accompany our denim products.
DO YOU ONLY SELL RAW DENIM?
Yes. We focus solely on denim in its raw state.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SANFORIZED & UNSANFORIZED DENIM?
Sanforized denim has been steamed and stretched before your jeans have been constructed to get rid of most of the shrinkage, but have not been washed or soaked once the jeans have been made. There is no need to soak or wash such denim before wearing it.
Unsanforized, or loomstate, has not been through this process at all, and more shrinkage occurs when you soak or wash your jeans for the first time. An initial soak before wearing is important to achieve the shrinkage and protect the fabric. It will shrink up to 10%.
SO WHEN AND HOW SHOULD I WASH MY JEANS?
At Rivet and Hide we believe that when and how often to wash your jeans is a matter of personal preference. Our suggestion is that you wash them once they come to a point where they give off odour or become unbearably dirty. Intense contrasts, crazy whiskering and creases around stress areas are usually the result of some lengthy washing abstinence. Washing rarely, or often, will give quite different results, but this is also strongly affected by how often the jeans are worn. Unsanforized jeans should be soaked or washed before wearing to shrink to fit and protect the fabric. After that, it's a personal choice when you wash them.
HOW DO I WASH MY JEANS?
When you decide to wash turn them inside out and wash in lukewarm water for minimum indigo loss. Hot washing may damage the cotton fibres, which may shorten the life of your jeans . Use a minimal amount of washing powder. Always air dry. Never use a dryer.
