the unique and imperfect beauty of this dye and printing method comes with special qualities. therefore, careful care is essential to maintain color and minimize dye transfer. skin transfer is possible, and be mindful of transfer to lighter fabrics that come into contact, which is possible. this dress is lined in regular fabric to prevent color transfer to undergarments. fading is normal and adds to the story.
