Procolour Dyeing Service

4. Fabric or garment over-dyeing, colour revitalising, and fixing fade and spot marks: Hideous colour schemes, dated prints, and washed-out colours can be harmonised or revitalised by over-dyeing. Garment over-dyeing difficulties: Stitching, zips, and linings in silk garments are usually made from polyester or something other than silk which will not dye in the same way as the silk fabric does. In the case of polyester, it hardly dyes at all. Customers are advised to consider that, if the non-silk parts of a garment are visible and fail to dye, this might ne- gate the merits of over-dyeing. To achieve dye fixation along with colour permanency, dyeing must be carried out at just below the boil. Such temperatures can permanently pucker tailored and lined garments. For example, if a man's silk tie goes through the wash, it will not retain its tailored look. So tailored garments with layered linings are unsuitable for dyeing. Bleach and fade spot removal: I usually get this sort of work from dry- cleaners because such repairs are beyond their scope. For me, repair usually involves matching the silk garment colour, then removing or dis- charging most of the colour from the entire garment, followed by over- dyeing to restore the garment back to the desired colour, hopefully, along with the faded or bleached parts of the garment, too. This sort of work carries some failure risk with it. Customers can request an estimate of the chances of getting a successful repair outcome enabling them to better evaluate whether or not to proceed.
