I am a photographer and Instagrammer. For the most part I create content for social media both for myself and for brands, sometimes I share this content in my gallery and sometimes it is simply work for my clients. Either way it is a job I adore.

Stone washed bed linen is a frequent term among other terms describing quality cotton or linen bed linen. Let’s find our more about this.
Stone washing is a type of garment wash. What is a garment wash? ? Garment wash is a pre-washing of a garment or other textile item after it is produced but prior to using it by the consumers. And there are several types of bed linen garment wash, among which is stone washing.
To accelerate the garment wash effect and to give textile items an even more unique appearance actual stones are used in the manufacturing process. Hence – stone washing. Bed linen pieces are washed together with natural and man-made stones, such as pumice or volcanic rock in order to produce a worn-out appearance to a newly manufactured cloth.
