Dry or Raw Denim is an unwashed denim treated with indigo dyes. Due to the nature of indigo dyes, the color fades and bleeds quickly. For those uninitiated with dry denim, one should try to wear the jeans as often as possible and post-pone washing them for as long as is tolerable (6 months to a year). The end result is a completely personal wash that denim designers constantly strive to reproduce. Take care around as these may bleed on white shoes and tops.
