Enzymes: are proteins present in all living things, increase the speed of chemical processes that would generally run slow if at all. They are non-toxic and readily broken down. Enzymes are used during the textile finishing process.
Enzyme Wash: is a more efficient and environmentally sound way to stone wash jeans. Rather than using pumice stones, enzymes are used to “eat” away at the indigo. Denim treated with an enzyme wash is stronger than those subjected to other washing techniques that experience higher level of abuse.
