Botanically Dyed Items:
Botanically dyeing is a complex and time consuming slow ancient craft, taking advantage of nature locally. Before the fabrics can be dyed they must be washed, submerged in a mordant bath, then added to a dye bath. Natural dyes should be treated as a living colour and can shift over time, depending on water pH levels, sunlight and general wear. This change should be celebrated.
Washing: We recommend pH neutral washing powder / liquid on a cool cycle, however hand washing will prolong the life and colour of your item. Don't use stain remover or heavy-duty detergents.
Drying: Dry in the shade and out of direct sunlight, or indoors away from heat sources.
Allow to air dry or better yet, towel dry as this will remove moisture quicker from the surface.
