7- SANFORIZED / UNSANFORIZED
Sanforization is a kind of finish applied mainly on cotton in which the fabric goes through a machine that stretches, shrunks and fixes the fabric in order to stabilize, lessen or minimize the shrinkage that might occur after the first wash or during production.
Unsanforized or shrink-to-fit denim hasn’t gone through the sanforization process.
Therefore it can shrink up to 15% after the first wash.
Unsanforized fabrics often have a rougher and hairier surface.
