Natural dyes are sometimes called living color because of how the colors dance in different lights and how they evolve over time.
All Wear Tinctoria fabrics are pre-treated through a mordanting process using mineral salts, which creates an insoluble bond between natural dye and fabric, brightening colors and making them resistant to wash and wear. Depending on the dye plant used, the color will age differently - some darken, some fade, and some evolve (showing off subtle undertones).
This aging is a poetic process of a naturally dyed garment and can lead to surface designs that are even more beautiful and delicate than the day the garment was dyed. However, special care should be taken to ensure the longevity of the natural dyes.
Care for your naturally dyed clothing by:
Washing with pH-neutral natural soap in cold water (up to 30 C).
Drying out of the sun.
