Denim, the evergreen fabric in the world of fashion, has long been associated with a significant carbon footprint due to traditional washing methods. The constant quest by HMS Washing for eco-friendly alternatives has led to the development of innovative solutions like HMS Original and HMS Light and as a result, a new era of sustainable denim washing ushered in.
On this note, let’s understand how HMS Original, our signature product, has added adjectives such as ‘eco-friendly’, ‘sustainable’ etc. to stone washing. Additionally, we shall also introduce you to HMS Light, a top-of-the-line solution designed to cater specifically to delicate fabrics.
The Stars of Eco-Friendly Denim Washing
HMS Original: The Earthy King of Denim Washing
HMS Original is a composite stone crafted from recyclable products. It addresses the environmental concerns associated with traditional stone washing methods. Utilizing this in denim washing processes results in a distinctive bright vintage appearance, accomplished with remarkable efficiency. Unlike conventional methods, HMS achieves this aesthetic with significantly less water, time, and effort.
Some Facts About HMS Original
In a 60-minute process, a mere 12-16 grams of HMS is reduced per garment. In other words, HMS lasts for 60 to 100 hours! This eliminates frequent stone changes and simplifies denim washing.
Unlike traditional methods, HMS does not leave dust on garments, eliminating the need for rinsing. Even if the rinsing is needed, one rinse is more than enough as compared to the usual three rinses in eco-unfriendly pumice stones.
HMS requires 20% less water per load. This effectively contributes to water conservation efforts.
HMS is composed of recycled pumice dust and biodegradable components. This is what makes it environment-loving.
Listing on Environment Impact Measurement (EIM) Tool
HMS maintains its commitment to transparency by being featured on the Environment Impact Measurement (EIM) tool. This tool evaluates environmental effects in areas such as water and energy use, chemical product utilization, and employee well-being. Remarkably, 100% of the HMS collection has received a low impact rating.
Customizability for Varied Requirements
HMS goes beyond standardization and offers customization based on customer demands. Different stone sizes cater to various fabrics and stonewash processes, providing optimal results for each unique requirement.
Exponential Efficiency Gains
The efficiency gap between traditional pumice stone and HMS widens exponentially with prolonged use and extended wash cycles. This makes HMS Original a superior choice for achieving desired denim finishes with minimal environmental impact.
HMS Light: Delicate Fabric Care
In the domain of intricate denim manufacturing, delicate fabrics present a unique challenge. HMS Light is an effective solution crafted specifically for delicate fabrics.
Some Standout Features of HMS Light
Its lower density provides gentle treatment to delicate fabrics. This property also ticks the sustainability goals of modern manufacturing.
Delicate fabrics often lose their inherent qualities during traditional washing. HMS Light, akin to its predecessor HMS Original, excels in maintaining porosity and consistent abrasiveness.
Optimal Water Interaction
Like traditional pumice stones, HMS Light possesses buoyant qualities essential for optimal water interaction during the finishing process. This ensures even treatment, preventing uneven or patchy results.
Easy Identification With Unique Hues
The distinctive hue of HMS Light simplifies material identification in busy manufacturing environments and reduces the risk of mix-ups.
A surprising feature of HMS Light is its ability to accelerate indigo abrasion. For manufacturers working with indigo-dyed fabrics, this saves their time without compromising the desired fading effect.
Summary & Conclusion
The introduction of HMS Original and HMS Light marks a transformative chapter in the intricate world of denim washing. The traditional methods of denim washing are giving way to innovative solutions that not only meet the demands of fashion but also champion sustainability and environmental responsibility.
As we reflect on the unique attributes of HMS Original and HMS Light, it becomes evident that these products aren’t just about changing the way denim looks; they are catalysts for a more conscientious and efficient manufacturing process.
HMS Original’s prowess in achieving a vintage look with minimal resources sets a new standard for eco-friendly stonewashing. Its customizable nature and exponential efficiency gains over traditional methods underscore its position as a trailblazer in sustainable denim finishing.
On the other hand, HMS Light steps into the spotlight, offering a specialized solution for delicate fabrics. Its lower density, consistent abrasiveness, and surprising ability to accelerate indigo abrasion make it the go-to choice for manufacturers aiming to balance environmental concerns with the intricate demands of delicate textiles.
As we conclude our discussion, the shift toward HMS is more than a trend; it’s a strategic move toward a future where denim manufacturing thrives on the principles of fabric care, sustainability, time efficiency, and streamlined operations.
