Frequently asked Questions:

Below is a few of the most common questions we receive. Please read through the list and if we don't already answer it here, e-mail us and we will be happy to respond to your question.

How should I wash my Wildflower Tie Dye?

To remove excess dye we wash all our tie dye clothing 4 times in warm water. We then tumble dry on warm. This makes them preshrunk and ready to wear.

Please be aware even after 4 washes there may be a small amount of loose dye still left in the fabric. To avoid color transfer We recommend washing your new item by itself for the first washing (just incase). Your tie dye will not fade. Follow the directions below for best results.

Wash cotton or hemp tie dyed items in cold to warm water with other colored items. Tumble dry warm or (save some energy) hang to dry. Turn garment inside out before washing.

Wash rayon tie dyed items by hand in warm water or in a washing machine on a delicate cycle. Hang to dry.

Note: Never use bleach on your tie dye. This will result in fading. Also, do not leave garment damp for long periods of time. This may cause bleeding in the first couple washes.

Will the colors bleed or fade?

No more than any other colored item bought in a boutique or clothing store. We use high quality commercial Procion MX dyes on all our clothing. These dyes are meant to last and believe me, they do! We wash all our dyed clothing 4 times and use a careful chemistry to insure your tie dye stays vibrant for years. You may notice a tiny bit of dye residue come out in the first wash, so we recommend washing your new tie dye separately for the first cycle.

We recommend (like all colored clothing) washing your tie dye in cold to warm water and drying on low heat. Better yet, hang dry your item and save a little energy!

Our Rayon sarongs should be washed by hand or on a delicate cycle in a mesh bag. Hang to dry.

P.S. Never use bleach!

Do you take custom orders?

Yes, we can make any of our designs in the colors and size of your choice. Custom orders can take as long as 4 weeks to complete depending on how busy we are at the time and they do cost more (for obvious reasons) than the tie dyes already made and for sale on our site (but hey, you get exactly what you want). Please click on the custom order link (left hand side of screen) to e-mail us your request. We will then respond with a estimated time of completion and a pricing quote. All custom orders must be prepaid. We will send you info on how to do this when you send your request.
