Designer jeans (denim trousers) that have been artificially aged by the sandblasting (“killer process”), which exposes workers to airborne silicates, resulting in silicosis, that may prove fatal within as little as a few months.

Killer jeans were first produced in the year 2000 in countries (e.g., Turkey, Syria, Bangladesh, Mexico, India and Indonesia), where regulation was minimal and safety standards lax. Since then, sandblasting has migrated even deeper into unregulated regions such as Southeast Asia and North Africa. The only way to stop this catastrophic practice is to boycott sandblasted jeans. 

Synonym Sandblasted jeans
