WHAT IS SANFORIZED DENIM?
Sanforized denim is made from cloth that has been stretched, fixed and shrunk in length at the mill. This is done in order to reduce the amount of shrinkage that can happen after your jeans’ first wash. The result of sanforization leads to 1-3% shrinkage, as opposed to 10% shrinkage with unsanforized (shrink to fit) denim.
ORIGIN OF SANFORIZED DENIM
The idea of sanforized fabric was brought to life by an American businessman and inventor, Sanford Lockwood Cluett. The idea was developed in 1928 and patented in 1930. Cluett served in the military for 22 years before joining Cluett, Peabody & Co, a family owned textile firm specializing in men’s clothing.
