millions of years of geologic development of the Earth, nature created
a variety of colored clays. Some of them are very abundant and present
on the surface and some of them are rare and you have to dig deep
to get to them. The South Eastern section of the US is rich in geologic
history and provides a variety of colors.
do we get the clay into the clothing?
Sometimes grinding is the necessary first step. In the second phase,
good blending with water is a must. The mixture is then added to
a load of soaked naturally colored (unbleached) clothing and stirred
for about 1 hour. Subsequently, the garments are lifted from the
vat and any excess water is removed. Then the dyed clothing travels
to dryers. After drying, a rigorous quality inspection takes place.
Finally, garments are folded and packaged.
it going to stay there?
Our clay-dyeing process assures lasting color. After several washes
the shade will change slightly like your favorite pair of jeans.
How to care for Earth Creations clothing?
Our care instructions are located on the label. All of our garments
are pre-shrunk. We suggest turning the garment inside out and washing
in cold water (no bleach or detergent with bleach) with similar
colors. Tumble dry low. Do not iron if imprinted.
do I remove spots (oil and others)?
Accidents do happen. We suggest that you use some type of grease
cutting dishwashing liquid. Please do not rub the spot vigorously
or the dye will come out. Instead wipe the spot gently and soak
until the spot is gone. You cannot use most stain removers because
they contain bleach!!
