Are the Natural Dyes fast?

Our ajrak fabrics are crafted using traditional natural dyes, which impart a unique and authentic character to the textiles. It's important to note that natural dyes, while rich and vibrant, may exhibit some initial color bleeding during the first wash. This is not a defect but rather a testament to the genuine and naturally dyed nature of the fabric.

To ensure the longevity of the colors, we recommend handwashing your ajrak fabric separately in cold water with a mild detergent for the first few washes. This will help set the dyes and minimize any color bleeding. Over time, the colors will become more stable, and you'll enjoy the enduring beauty and charm of your ajrak fabric. It's a unique quality that adds to the character and appeal of these traditional textiles.
