Your handmade textile has been carefully and expertly hand-dyed in vats by village weavers in Laos. If you wash it and there is some bleeding, not to worry. There often is excess dye that migrates in a textile and the “bleeding out” of the indigo is the mark of true indigo. Simply wash it again immediately and the excess dye will wash out. Repeat if needed.

Phu Tai women from the weaving village of Ban Lahanam in the south of Laos, who are experts at all stages of making their famed indigo ikat textiles.
