Pigment Dye

Our Pigment Dyeing process doesn’t end when a garment leaves our studio, it carries on after through washes and wears, creating a singular “fingerprint” of worn-in dyeing which is totally unique to the customer. Pigment dyeing is a fascinating process whereby the pigment dyes are bonded to the fabric but, unlike traditional dyes they do not saturate or penetrate the textile. This allows for them to wear off in places where they may rub against the wearer’s body, or during the wash. As the pigments are “chipped” away the garment takes on a very sought after worn-in look which is unique to the stresses which the wearer has put the pigments under—in short, creating a “fingerprint” of unique dye patterning.
