Due to the nature of different dye and wash processes that may be used on our products, we recommend washing by hand any tie dye or washed garments, especially for the first wash. We are not responsible for any bleeding, fading or transfer of dye colors. Any tie dyed, garment dyed, mineral dyed or pigment dyed items have been put though a wash process which gives them a customized color and softness. This wash process may cause the fabric of the garment to weaken slightly so we recommend that any machine wash be on low heat and tumble dry low to prevent damage to these items.
