All FRUX HANDMADE goods are hand dyed with plants. As with all natural dyes, colours will soften and fade slightly over time. This is the impermanent nature of plant dyes and one of the reasons why we love them so much! Having said this, we are careful to only use plant extracts that are tannin-rich, meaning dyes that are the most colourfast in the natural dyeing world which are less likely to fade. To increase the longevity of your FRUX HANDMADE goods, please follow our care instructions below.
