|Product handling method
|This indigo dyeing product has undergone as much harshness and natural color fixing as possible after dyeing, but the color may fade slightly or transfer due to intense rubbing during use. For the first 2 or 3 washes after purchase, we recommend that you separate it from white clothes and gently wash it in hot water of about 40°C with an appropriate amount of neutral detergent. Please use detergents that do not contain fluorescent brighteners or bleaches as much as possible. A brownish-yellow pigment may come out when washing, but this is a unique ingredient of indigo dyeing, and the harshness will disappear with repeated washings, and the vivid color unique to natural indigo dyeing will increase. It may change color by reacting to UV rays such as sunlight. Store away from UV rays.
