Among the enzymes used in textile treatment processes laccases are relatively new and usability is limited. In this study, it was aimed to investigate the use of laccase in denim washing. It was observed that especially enzymatic treatment duration has of great importance for the higher L* values of the denim garments. But with the increase in duration the back-staining was come out evidently. pH and Enzyme concentration has also effects on the obtained results but they were limited
