Garment Dyeing is a bit like cooking, you can use the same recepee and the same ingredients but that does not mean you will always get the same result. Infact you are more than likely to get something a bit different everytime you do it. What you can’t beat about garment dyeing is the fact that the look and the feel of your garment is going to be unique somehow. But there are a few issues to consider, your garment will shrink about a size when doing that but you will not be able to control that 100% as factors like number of items being dyed together (for example) will influence the final result. But, if you are looking for a vintage, worn look and feel, garment dyeing is the way to go, and we really love the different shades you get around the seams, for istance. There is simply no other way to get that.

Tinto Marmo

Although Tinto Marmo is not the easiest treatment to control, it is definitely one of our favourite dyeing techniques. Garments are pre-dyed at high temperatures and then washed with a process that corrodes the colour, providing the fabric with a wornout look and a very soft handfeel, stressing the cotton quite a lot during the process. Garments are then enzym washed to get an even smoother feel.
The outside and the inside of the garment feature a visible tone-over-tone effect.

Tinto Sabbia

Garments are pre-dyed at high temperatures and then hand sprayed on reverse with a sand based resin which provides the fabric with a wornout look , stressing the fabric quite a lot during the process and sometimes causing stitches to break. The outside and the inside of the garment feature a visible tone-over-tone effect.
