Why do colour bleed?
- Poor quality dye.
- Incorrect dying technique.
- Incorrect dye used for the type of fabric (Not all dyes work on all kind of fabrics).
- An excess amount of dye left in the product because the items was not properly rinsed out during the dying process.
- The manufacturer has not used the fixture to bind the dye to the fabric.
- The fixer has washed out of the fabric due to prolonged hot washing and so is no longer holding the dye to the fibres
- Wear and tear: friction between fabrics that can micro-breakages in the fibres and lead to release of the dye.
- Bleaching, which can be caused by the fabric’s exposure to bleaching products, heat, and/or sun.
