There are many methods that are available for dying jeans. One method in fact involves using commonly used products such as tea or even coffee grounds. As the first step in this method you will need to brew a piping hot pot of either tea or coffee. You should simultaneously keep the jeans in a pot of cold water such that the fabric gets saturated with water thoroughly. You can then add either boiled coffee or tea on to the pot of cold water in which you have kept the jeans. The next step involves allow this mixture to simmer for around half an hour or so. Once you pull out the jeans and dry it you will be pleasantly surprised to see that the antique –beige color that your pair of jeans would have taken.
One more method involves the use of indigo. In fact it is used by leading jean manufacturers too. The process of dying with indigo would need a little bit of practice and patience, since it is a complex process requiring natural fermentation to happen. These days another method is available which is fairly easy. It is now possible to freeze dry natural indigo vat. Water is then to be added to these indigo crystals. You will then need to stir the mixture gently so that the crystals are dissolved and your dye would be ready to be applied on to jeans. These days there are many ready-to-color mixtures also available in the market, which you can try out for coloring your jeans.
