What is Acid Washing?

Acid washing, also known as mineral washing, first gained popularity in the 80s. This technique involves using chlorine or pumice stones soaked in chlorine to discolor certain parts of the fabric, resulting in that coveted vintage, faded look.

How Are Acid Washed T-Shirts Made?

Creating an acid washed t-shirt is an art that involves a mix of precision, patience, and creativity. Here's a step-by-step overview of the process at SHBA MOVEMENT:

1. Selecting Quality Fabric

At SHBA MOVEMENT, we believe in delivering the best to our customers. We start by choosing high-quality, 100% cotton tees as the perfect canvas for the acid wash process. The natural fibers of cotton respond well to the acid wash, allowing for beautiful and distinctive patterns.

2. Tying and Knotting

Each shirt is hand-tied, creating a series of knots and folds. This technique allows the acid solution to interact differently with each section, giving every shirt its unique design.

3. The Acid Wash Process

We then immerse the tied t-shirt in a solution of water and chlorine. The strength of the solution and the duration of immersion influence the final result. After the immersion, we rinse the t-shirt thoroughly to stop the bleaching process. The knots are then untied to reveal an impressive pattern that is unique to each t-shirt.

4. Washing and Drying

After the acid wash process, each shirt undergoes a rigorous wash and dry cycle. This step is crucial for eliminating any residual chlorine, ensuring the comfort and safety of the wearer.

5. Final Inspection

Each acid washed oversized tee then goes through a final quality check to ensure it meets our high standards before it reaches your hands.


By merging traditional techniques with modern fashion trends, SHBA MOVEMENT is creating waves in the fashion world. Our acid wash oversized tees not only offer a unique, edgy look but also uphold our commitment to sustainability and quality.
