What is "Pigment Dyeing" - Definition & Explanation

A process used to give garments a characteristic "washed out" or weathered look, while offering good light- and wash-fastness and reasonable crocking (wet-rub) resistance.
A process in which a specific type of dye is applied to the surface of a fabric, then after one washing it fades into a softer color. The color will slowly continue to fade with age. Pigment dyed products from The Territory Ahead are prewashed and will not harm other garments during washing.
An Insoluble Colorant Is Applied To The Fabric As A Paste Or Emulsion, Heat Cured And Bound To The Fabric With Resins Or Binders. The Curing Process Can Be Controlled So The Color Will Fade After Washing, Giving The Garments A Used Worn Look.
