Thread: Distinction between terminologies One Wash/Raw vs. Sanforized/Unsanforized?

    Distinction between terminologies One Wash/Raw vs. Sanforized/Unsanforized?

    I guess I understand what (un)sanforized means; it is also a trademark or copyrighted process.

    However, I still not get the distinction how it compares to the Raw/One Wash distinction, see here. You can choose between One Wash and Raw.

    Someone could explain?

    Raw means exactly that, it's untreated, unwashed RAW denim. One wash means exactly that, it's been washed once. I'm assuming they offer that for people who don't like the starchy feeling that raw denim has.

    My understanding is that sanforization is a mechanical process to wet & shrink the denim, whereas One-Wash denim sold (like at your link and BlueInGreen) is washed -- by hand, using seawater, a normal washing machine, or whatever the method -- not shrunk by a sanforization machine but by the same way one would or could at their house.
