Fading Dyes

Fading occurs when a fabric is exposed to sunlight, artificial light or even atmospheric gases. The color loss is very gradual and often goes undetected because the fabric is gathering soil at the same time. Dyes used on silk, acetate, and suede fabrics are most susceptible to color loss or discoloration. Always ask your fabric specialist about the longevity of the dye on it’s fabric before purchasing.
