"A GOOD PAIR OF JEANS ARE LIKE A FRIEND"
JANE RAMSAY JEANS ARE GARMENT DYED TO ACHIEVE OUR WASH TEMPLATE
As the nature of denim is that it is un-colourfast layers of colour have been applied to create the lasting effect we seek. This however means that over the first few months of owning your new jeans there is a high degree of colour transfer. So a few things to remember...
Be careful with dry and wet colour bleed, especially in the beginning. These jeans will fade over time. Stay away from light-coloured furniture and be careful with your accessories. As denim is un-colourfast, "crocking" (which is the transfer of colour from one surface to another) is a normal characteristic. This will lessen over time with wear and washing. The number of washes or amount of time is dependent upon multiple factors such as water temperature, detergent, drying conditions, body temperature, and wearing conditions.
Part of the charm of this type of finish is that it will obtain a beautiful patina over time that is unique to the wearer. Black jeans will fade to a dark charcoal which looks fantastic and is actually not all that easy to create artificially. Wash these jeans rarely and let them tell your story. Especially black jeans, you can actually re-dye with a basic colour kit available from many department stores, in case you want to restore the black colour without buying a new pair. As the denim has been washed and dyed denim shrinkage will be minimal - where it occurs at all.
As these may bleed a bit and will continue fading with every wash, it is important to wash ALONE in cold water for the first few washes, and then only with similar colours. Typically there is a high degree of colour loss over the first few washes, however visibly this will not have a very noticeable effect on the appearance of the jean.
