Edwin Jeans has collaborated with the legendary Italian denim laundry Martelli on a G Wash programme denim collection once again for Spring/Summer 2014. A strong relationship has developed between Edwin Jeans and the world renowned denim launder Martelli Lavorazioni Tessili. Martelli is known to launder denim like no other because they use some unique-hand finished wash techniques that make jeans look absolutely outstanding.
The G-Wash program takes the principle of natural looking wash processes and stays true to the look and feel of naturally worn in denim. Martelli recreate by hand the specific, subtle nuances and character of that favourite worn in five-pocket jean.The jeans in the Edwin G Wash by Martelli collection are available in four different styles entitled the G5, G6, G7 and the G8. Edwin Jeans and Martelli replicate the natural wear in process of a pair of jeans worn heavily for 2 years through the G Wash programme.
