Island Scouts product goes through a final stage of customized washing to create a more vintage feel. Pumice stones and acid or enzyme washes are applied to garments similar to how jeans are treated. This unique stone washing treatment will cause color differences such as fades and roping on the seams. Due to the washing treatments we develop and use, colors from the yarn may fade or stain onto the threads. This creates a specific and unique fingerprint on each and every product we develop. The final look and hand-feel of this “vintage wash” makes our product look old, worn and feels comfortable to wear, just like a T-shirt that you’ve washed countless times. Besides the comfortable feel in our garments, more advantages such as multi-color garment structure and minimizing natural shrinkage when you wash. The stone washing process has ex-posed the fabric to extreme circumstances and gives the fabric a heavy worn-in look.
