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.

 

Care Instructions

To preserve the structure of your products, we recommend spot cleaning only with cold water and a natural, enzyme-free detergent.

Do not treat with bleach or oxidizing agents.

Lay flat to dry in a shaded area.

Keep away from direct sunlight as the sun will fade your naturally dyed goods.

Be careful around acids like citrus as some dyes will react to them.

If you have any questions with regards to caring for your naturally dyed goods, feel free to send us a message at hello@fruxhandmade.com.
