A Word About Our Colors

Most of our colors are hand-dyed to order. Just like with any other fabric, it might take a wash or two for any excess dye to bleed out of the fabric. There are a few other things to note:

  • Each fabric and elastic type will take the dye just a little bit differently. Everything goes together, but they may not all match perfectly. The water conditions and dye lot can affect the color.
  • There is some room for personalization! I can dye a bit more intense or a bit more pastel. Please leave an order note if you have a preference.
  • I'm happy to tell you what I think would be the best match for a fabric that you have. Please send me a swatch and I'll let you know what I think. I'll also tell you if I can't match your fabric. Then I'll use your swatch to target the right color intensity. 
  • I have 2 monitors for my work computer. I check my color rendition on both monitors and try to get it as good as I can, but there is a clear difference between the 2 monitors. This means that the color rendition on your computer or device might be quite different than mine. If you put together things that might not actually look lovely in person, I'll send you an email and we'll come up with a plan.
