o Crocking (rubbing)
o Perspiration
o Exposure to light or fumes
Or does the color bleed, transfer, or fade? Colorants Dyes Chemically bond with fiber More colorfast Do not alter the hand Can be used at any stage Pigments Require a binder to fix to fabric Color lays on face Stiffen the fabric Less colorfast Applied to fabric (typically as a print) Factors to consider when dyeing Type of fiber Color matching Colorfastness End use Cost Environmental impact Fiber Types Type of dye used is dependent on the type of fiber Cellulose & protein fibers are more absorbent o Dyed easily and produced brilliant colors
o Includes manufactured cellulose fibers
Synthetic fibers are not naturally absorbent o Required innovation in dyes and chemicals to produce great color variety

o Effect on thread or trims
Printing ‘Stamping’ pattern or color on fabric face Typically les colorfast than dyeing fiber, yarn, or fabric Cheaper to produce than patterns created during weaving or knitting Dye vs. Pigment Printed Printing with dye Color can penetrate to the reverse Doesn’t mask the face
