The intensity of the color and its fastness have to do with many factors such as the fiber itself, the weather and the use of additives in the dyeing process. Old fabrics, such as our Antique Linens will keep their color for a longer period of time, while new (often chemically treated) fabrics will fade quicker. No one can exactly tell when your garment will start to fade, this can take months but also years. Fact is that at some point your garment’s color will fade, that is a natural process which cannot, and should not, be influenced by us.
When your garment is fading we advise you to order a Dyeing Service for your garment to dye it back again, or in another color. You may also dye it yourself, because this you can do easily at home. We often give workshops about natural dyeing; our Hul le Kes Dyeing Events.
