Indigo dyeing is a special process that also requires extra care. Indigo bleeding is normal in naturally dyed garments and after several initial washes, the color will stabilize. Over time, the natural and graceful fading process results in a uniquely personalized piece. It is advisable to hand wash this garment separately and avoid exposure to direct sunlight as it could lead to premature fading.
