Then the dyed fabric is washed and hang to dry basking under the glorious Indian sun for another 12 hours before they are sent to the stitching team.
Natural fabrics such as cotton and gauze are really efficient at soaking up colour. The griege fabric has to be processed first before it can be dyed.
Colour dying ⚘
Once the fabric is ready, it's put through roller machines, where they are dipped into a colour tank for around 12 hours.
The coloured fabric is then washed and hung out to dry under the Indian sun for another 12 hours before they make their way to the tailors - usually on the back of a motorbike!
Colour Matching ⚘
A key part of the dying process is to match our chosen colours. With the weather and other factors that can influence it, it is never guaranteed how shades may come out. However, our team are experts in this field and it's always exciting to see how they come out.
