Stonewashed products are each unique and very fashion forward. They are no longer used just in the more traditional boho styles.
The stonewashing is a textile process used to give new fabric a more worn in look. It also helps to make the fabric feel softer and more supple. Terrific with stiff cottons.
The process uses smooth stones to roughen up the fabric. Because of this process, the fabric will not fade or shrink.
The peace symbol was created by Gerald Holtom in 1958 on behalf of the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). He claimed that it represents a stylized person with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards helplessly and resignedly in the face of the nuclear threat.
It was then taken up in the 1960 and 1970 by protestors of the Vietnam War. It then stood for 'make peace, not war'.
Today it is used to represent peace, love and serenity and can be seen on many bags and garments.
