All Flora Workshop products are handyed with plants. The colours are made to last but need to be treated kindly. Below you find a guide how to care for your plant dyed garments in the best way.
WASH IN MILD DETERGENT
Plant dyed garment need to be washed in a mild detergent and in low temperature to keep the colours from fading. Washing detergent with strong chemicals can even alter the colour. Washing detergents for delicates or silk/wool is the safest choice.
All Flora Workshop products are washed in DELICATE Laundry detergent from the Steamery as a final step in our dyeing process. A detergent that is safe to use for natural dyes and add a lovely scent of Rose & Musk.
HANG DRY IN THE SHADOW
Hang drying is recommended, both for the care of the garment and for the environment. If you have the possibility to hang outside it adds extra freshness to your washed garments. But be careful of direct sunlight as it can bleach some of the natural dyes.
DO YOU EVEN NEED TO WASH?
Often garments can be refreshed by hanging outside for a while. To avoid unnecessary washing is the best thing you can do considering both the care of the garment and the environment.
