BLASTED NOT - WORN JEANS
To our minds it is just daft to reduce the life of a pair of jeans by artificially distressing them. It seems that it happens though sometimes through a process of sandblasting the jeans. Now sandblasting is intense it involves literally blasting sand at high pressure at the jeans. It's an incredibly dusty business. If you wanted the workers to stay safe it would be a health and safety nightmare. Not all jean manufacturers care about their workers though and by not providing the necessary protective clothing are risking their employees getting silicosis, an incurable lung disease, and other ailments.
