Washing is one of the most important finishing treatments applied on apparels that have great usage to create special outlooks and improving the fashion. Technologically denim washing is the most important fashion element for clothing industry. The aim of this paper is to determine the effects of industrial stone enzyme wash on cotton-jute blended denim fabric. For this investigation, blended denim (75% cotton & 25% jute of total weight of fabric with twill 3/1 weave construction) leg panels were chosen. The selected denim fabric has been processed by stone enzyme wash, in order to evaluate the washing effects on denim leg panel, changes of fabric specification (ends/inch, picks/inch), fabric tensile strength, GSM, shrinkage, color fastness and rubbing test results has been determined after enzyme wash. Then pH is measured, and SEM test done to check the microscopic changes on the fabric surface.
