The quality of the fiber used to make a fabric is crucial in terms of fading resistance. Our fabrics are made from 100% solution-dyed branded acrylic.
This means that the color pigments go all the way into the fiber (similar to the carrot shown on the right), not just on the surface of the fiber (like you see with cucumber). This gives the fabrics a superior color fastness and makes the colors shine for a longer period of time.
