  •   We Need More Information
    Unfortunately, we are not able to determine if your garment can be dyed without knowing exactly what fiber the fabric it's made from. There should be a label inside your garment that specifies the fiber.e.g., polyester, silk, cotton... If there is no fiber information on the label. Perhaps, your local fabric store, dry cleaner, or the garment maker can identify the fabric.
  •   Satin, Chiffon, Lace, Organza, Taffeta, Tulle
    Satin, chiffon, lace, organza, taffeta and tulle are fabric styles, not fibers. These fabrics are usually made from polyester, silk or nylon. If the label does not specify the exact fiber, your local dry cleaner, fabric store, or the garment maker may be able to identify the fiber. We are not able to determine if your garment can be dyed without knowing exactly what fiber the fabric it's made from.


  • 3) Does Your Garment Have A Lining?
  • Linings
    • Most linings will dye similarly to your garment except for polyester and acetate linings.
    • Polyester and acetate linings will remain the original color or only become slightly tinted.


  • 4) Does Your Garment Have Any of These Accessories?
  • Beading
    Beading usually does not dye and remains the original color. However, it is possible that it could stain slightly. Beading must be sewn on securely. Beading that is glued on will fall off and the glue residue will damage your garment

  • Crystals
    Crystals usually do not dye, they remain the original color. However, it is possible that they could stain slightly. Crystals must be sewn on securely. Crystals that are glued on will fall off and the glue residue will damage your garment.

  • Embroidery
    Embroidery may or may not dye depending on the fiber. Fabric labels usually do not provide information about embroidery, so it's a matter of dyeing your garment and seeing how it turns out.

  • Fur
    Fur usually does not dye. However, we cannot guarantee that it will not dye. It could become damaged from being dyed. We cannot be held responsible for the outcome of fur garments or garments with fur.

  • Leather
    Most likely, leather will become damaged from being dyed. We recommend removing leather parts prior to sending your item to be dyed. We cannot be held responsible for the outcome of leather garments or garments with leather.

  • 5) Is Your Garment Discolored?
  • FADED EVENLY
    • Garments that are faded evenly must be dyed slightly darker than the original color to renew the color.
  • FADED UNEVENLY or BLOTCHY
    • Garments that are faded unevenly or blotchy must be dyed much darker than the original color to cover the discoloration.
  • STAINS
    • Garments that are stained need to be dyed much darker than the original color.
    • It's difficult to determine if dyeing will cover stains. Occasionally, stains absorb more dye than the fabric and become more visible.
  • BLEACH STAINED

    • We can dye your garment another color, however, the bleach stains may still be visible after your garment is dyed.

  • * Cashmere dyes well, but it tends to shrink slightly when it's dyed. Shrinkage is usually about 5%. However, more shrinkage is possible.
