Please note we are not selling any product on this site as a representative of the original brand name, manufacturer or company of ownership. We make no claims to other brand copyrights or registered trademarks. All garments are presented as wearable art.
Each piece has been carefully selected and lovingly hand dyed to provide our customers the broadest array of styles, textures, fabrics and colors. As upcycled garments, some of these items may have minor repairs or imperfections. Pieces that do not pass our quality standards will be marked as “seconds” and sold as-is at discounted prices. If you receive a garment that has a visible flaw (missing button, hole, ripped seam, etc.), please call or email us immediately and we will make it right.
Ice dyed pieces are washed in hot water several times as part of the dyeing and finishing process. Hot water often shrinks natural fibers, resulting in the actual garment sizes being smaller than the original manufacturer label indicates. Click here for sizing and fit guidance.
CARING FOR YOUR ICE DYED GARMENT
Caring for Your Wearable Art Our ice dyed wearable art pieces are processed to help cut down on dye bleed and back staining during subsequent washing. Dye bleed is when leftover loose dye comes off and turns the wash water a different color. For example, your purple, blue and fuchsia blouse may turn your wash water slightly pink or bluish the first few washes. This is normal.
Back staining is when loose dye from the wash water reattaches to the fabric and changes the color. For instance, if you put a white and red garment in the wash water and it comes out stained pink where the white used to be, it has been back stained by loose red dye from the rest of the fabric. We process all our pieces to help prevent this from happening.
Hand Wash No matter how conscientious we are, there may be instances when bits of leftover dye are still present. Your garment should always be hand washed by itself using cold water and a few drops of hair shampoo or dishwashing liquid. Gently squeeze the suds through the fabric several times and then rinse the piece. It is best to simply wash and rinse the piece and then remove excess water by rolling the piece in a towel or putting it in a spin-only cycle in a washing machine.
Do not soak your ice dyed pieces for any length of time. We recommend a wash and rinse time of less than five minutes to help prevent dye bleeding and fading.
Do Not Dry Clean Dry cleaners use harsh liquid chemicals that can severely fade or completely remove the dye from your ice dyed pieces. Always hand wash your ice dyes.
Dye Bleed In the event of any dye bleed, rinse the piece several times in fresh, cold water until the water is fairly clear. Some minor dye bleed is normal. However, there should not be any back staining. It is extremely important, regardless of our processing, to wash your ice dyed pieces by themselves to prevent any possible dye bleed from staining other clothing that has not been processed the same way.
Tumble Dry or Air Dry All the pieces we offer have been machine washed and dried, with the exception of 100% silk garments. There should be no further shrinkage of your ice dyed piece. You can opt to tumble your ice dyed garment in the dryer on low heat to keep it nice and soft, or you can lay it flat or hang it up to air dry. For silk garments, we recommend hanging to dr
Do Not Use Fabric Softeners We do not recommend using any kind of fabric softener or dryer sheets, both of which can compromise the dye.
Press or Steam (or not!) All our ice dyed pieces can be lightly pressed with an iron on a medium setting or steamed with a hand steamer to help remove wrinkles. Or you can wear them wonderfully wrinkled and comfy. No one else will mind!
WILL THIS FIT ME?
Ice dyed pieces must be washed in hot water multiple times as part of the dyeing and finishing process. This process can often shrink fibers, resulting in the actual garment sizes being smaller than the original manufacturer label indicates.
We take measurements of every dyed garment and list them in the descriptions to help you determine proper fit based on measurements of similar clothing in your closet.
DO NOT RELY ON THE ORIGINAL BRAND LABEL SIZE FOR FIT. We highly recommend measuring a garment you have in your wardrobe that is a similar style and comparing the measurements to the piece you would like to purchase. For instance, if the dyed top you are admiring is a peasant style, measure something from your closet that is a little loose and flowy rather than a fitted tee for comparison.
Chest circumference can be determined by measuring an existing top from underarm to underarm (where the bottom of the sleeve meets the bodice at the side seams) across the front and multiplying that number by 2. For instance, if the front measures 24.5 inches across from underarm to underarm, the chest circumference is 49 inches.
Waist measurements can be taken by laying the piece flat, measuring across the waistband (or smallest width of the piece at the waist area) and multiplying by 2.
Hip measurements can be taken by laying the piece flat, measuring across from side to side directly above where the legs split and multiplying by 2. Please note the side seams will most likely lie to the front and not line up at the sides, which is normal. Our backsides are typically rounder than our fronts, so the back of a pair of pants or shorts needs to be wider than the front to accommodate the curves.
Please contact us with any questions or if you need help with measurements. We are always happy to assist!
