abigail commented on the word acid-wash denim
To get a "distressed" look, clothing makers washed denim jeans for three to four hours at a time with pumice stones soaked in bleach. This created worn-looking spots and streaks.

To get a distressed look, ask me to do the washing :-(

I always thought they employed professional jeans-wearers to wear the jeans until they acquired that "distressed" look.
