• Photographer Calvin Pausania worked together with clothing brand COLD WASH to release a pair of unique lasered jeans. 


    The collaboration jeans feature an unreleased photograph by Pausania on the back of the left leg and a verse about escapism, written by Zainab Goelaman, placed on the right thigh. 

    What makes these jeans special is that all the graphics have been engraved into the denim by using a special laser-technique. COLD WASH, a Amsterdam based clothing brand, is specialized in creating graphics on denim with the use of this technique. The laser burns and removes the dye out of the denim fabric, and in turn exposes the original natural colored yarn, without damaging the cotton. 


    The collaboration is related to a workshop organised by Pausania last December; Focussed on escapism, the workshop allowed participants to create their own masterpieces with unreleased work by the Dutch photographer, escaping the digital work by actually making things with their hands.
