What are the characteristics of chemical dyes vs. natural plant dye?
The colors of chemical dyes are designed to resist biodegradation, hence the permanent colors. The harm caused by unfiltered and non-degradable toxins accumulated in rivers is the real cost to us. You might get uncomfortable at the beginning with natural plant dyes because the truth is like life itself; color does fade a little, and colors are, indeed, what we truly believe add character and value to the products left behind.
So, how do you take care of a piece of clothing colored with natural plant dye?
We recommend that you hand-wash it in cold water.
Are you still not satisfied?
We'll soon be launching our redyeing program that will make a product last and last. Please email us for more details.
