For the betterment of comfort ability, to impart decent fading effect and to make more exquisite, denim fabric is examined with different washing techniques. Usually, Acid wash is used to fade the color of denim to a higher degree and therefore this wash has a significant effect on the physical and mechanical properties of the denim. In this paper, we worked on to find out the comparison among stone, waste wood and wood composite in case of acid wash on denim fabric dyed with indigo dye. Denim garments were processed using some parameters such as temperature 30 °C, time 30 min as well as acid concentration (H3PO4) 1 ml/L, (KMnO4) 4 gm/l. This study was focused on the physical & mechanical properties like strength, weight loss, shrinkage, EPI & PPI, absorbency, color fading, GSM, wash, rubbing and perspiration fastness test and monitored the comparison of each treated and untreated fabric samples. It was noticeable that, a significant difference was found in case of Waste wood washed and wood composite washed garments in almost all properties than stone washed garments but the desired fading effects were achieved by acid washing with wood composite on denim fabric.

Keywords: Denim washing, Acid wash, stone, dry wood, wood composite.
