Solution Dyed Canvas

Conventional dyed fibre

Conventional dyed fabric fibre

Solution dyed fibre

We use solution dyed fabrics which means when the fibre is being made from a liquid form, it’s dyed before being extruded and this way the dye covers the entire fibre inside and out. The other way is to make the fibre first and then dye it, doing it this way is called conventional dying which can fade in 1-2 years depending on how much sun it receives as your only coating the outside of the fibre.
