80's Mini Dress
Botanical dyes are often referred to as living colour because of the way the shades mature with time.... depending on the dye used, the pigments will have varying sensitivity to sunlight and washing. Fabrics are treated before dyeing to ensure maximum fatness of the color, but here are two tips for caring for your naturally dyed clothing.
1. Wash with pH neutral natural soap in cold water. Please note, the first time you wash the garment some extra dye might come out.
2. Dry out of the sun.
