Editor of the blog, Liane and Director of HonestForum, Dave met up in freezing New York City during Fashion Week and hit up Atrium, a really cool denim shop in Soho. We met one of the sales staff there who wore a pair of raw denim Nudies that he’s had for 5 years and only washed a few times by hand. They looked really cool, makes us want to try a pair! This is definitely a shop to check out if you are ever in Soho!
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.
