Care of BUAISOU Indigo Products: BUAISOU recommends gently hand washing items with detergent and lukewarm water the first 2-3 times after purchase. Please use a detergent that does not include any whitening or bleaching agents. Although BUAISOU’s indigo dye products have been stripped of excess dye using natural dye stripping agents prior to purchase, there is still a possibility of color transfer with harsh rubbing or other close / vigorous interactions. Brown or yellow pigment may appear during washing, this is a chemical component unique to the indigo dye. Through repeated washing, you may remove the excess dye and be left with more vivid colors than before. This is a very special trait that sets BUAISOU’s indigo dye products apart from the rest.
Because the products are handmade, each item’s colors and patterns are unique. The dye may react to ultraviolet rays, such as sunlight, and discoloration may occur. Please keep away from excessive ultraviolet rays or sunlight. In the unlikely event of discoloration, place the item in hot water overnight, wash and repeat. Using a washing machine is possible (with the delicate wash function).
