The Dharma Pigment Dye System
Here's a really exciting and different product! Dharma Pigment Dye is a concentrated, totally non-toxic pigment system that when applied to fabrics, looks and feels like dye. The big thing is that, unlike dyes, you can get wash-fast, dry-cleanable, permanent results without the use of steamers, chemical fixatives, or extensive heat-setting. Just dilute it to taste (we recommend 1 part pigment to 2-4 parts water), directly apply it (ie any way except submersion), and let it dry and air-cure for at least 24 hours. (If a 24-hour air cure is a problem for you, you can speed up the process with a hair dryer.) We have found that a bit of heat-setting, 20 or so minutes in a home dryer or a quick 1-3 minute run-over with an iron, will produce the strongest colors. Then, it should be washed to get out the excess, just like you would with a dye. Pigment dyed fabrics have a unique "stonewashed" look, ie a little faded, more or less depending on the fabric, so test if you need specific results.
