Caring for naturally dyed textiles

Natural dyes fade gently over time, especially with washing and exposure to sunlight. This change is part of their natural beauty and uniqueness. To keep the colours bright for as long as possible, be sure to wash gently and infrequently, dry in the shade, and don’t leave naturally-dyed items exposed to the sun for long periods.
