Continuing Education


By  | 

DENIM 101 at BPD WASHHOUSE is a full two-day learning experience. There is a 2-hour tutorial to start then the remainder of the time is all hands-on execution of all denim wet and dry process techniques!

We teach how to comment on denim washes and how to deal with manufacturers through proper communications to get the best results.

We also cover costing for wash from a global perspective.

You will see the latest trends in real time.

You will understand the meaning sustainability and be able to express your opinion of what sustainability means for you and your brand.

The best class size is btw 4-10 people.

While the Denim 101 class is most effective at the BPD Washhouse facility, we can tailor an off-site class at your location or adjust timing to fit your team’s schedule.

Design, Merch, Sourcing, Sales, and Tech can all benefit from this fun and in-depth experience as an introduction to the denim world or as a refresher for your next development trip. The vibe is also great for team building and understanding the cross-functional implications of denim wash.

And as always, no judgments here or denim superiority complexes. There are no stupid questions. Everyone’s individual talents are recognized and encouraged.

We make you the expert and the artist.
