Natural Dye Care
Caring for plant dyed textiles is fairly simple and requires a little extra attention. For block printed, plant dyed altar cloths, hand-washing with eco friendly soap [free of bleach or chemicals that could potentially shift the natural colors] and air drying is recommended. For plant dyed and block printed bed, table, and kitchen linens, machine wash gentle with eco friendly soap and hang to dry or tumble dry on low for extra softness. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and excessive washing may cause fading and/or changing of natural dye colors over time. It’s part of the beauty of living colors. Proper fiber preparation has been done to ensure a light-fast and wash-fast dye treatment but variations are natural and are to be expected, they are what make your plant dyed piece truly one of a kind — embrace them! These few extra efforts will support your pieces in remaining in their best condition for many moons to come.
