Stone finishing of cotton garments has focused on the use of agents that modify already dyed fabrics. In this investigation, three stone finishing techniques were used as pretreatments to alter the response of the garment in a subsequent dyeing step. Process details are given and examples shown for each technique investigated. The first technique was the application of a crosslinker-cationic system so that areas touched by stones becanie cationic after curing and could be preferentially dyed on piece dyeing. The second technique, application of a catalyst poison to fabric sensitived with a crosslinker-cationic system, led to differential surface whiteness on piece dyeing. The third method investigated was the use of conventional crosslink systems, applied either by stones or as a pretreatment to a stone catalyst poison finish. These processes resulted in garments with a stone or acid washed look in a range of colors.
