What type of fabric do you use to make blue fish clothing?

Blue Fish is made with natural fibers – organically grown cotton jersey, hemp, linen, silk, cotton denim, cotton stretch and tencel/rayon blends.
We are always searching for innovative earth friendly fabrics to create our designs, so we will continue to add new natural fibers to our ever-changing collections.

How do I care for my blue fish clothing?

WASHING:

Do colors bleed?
We garment dye our clothes.  In other words, they are dyed after they are sewn.  Neither the dye nor the paints should bleed during wear or washing if properly cared for.

How durable are the clothes?

Blue fish clothing is designed to be worn often and last a long time.  some customers have blue fish from 25 years ago that is still going strong.  the quality of our fabric and the craftsmanship makes for clothing that will last.

Can I wash my printed clothing?

Yes! Machine wash gentle or hand wash using a mild laundry soap (preferably organic).  Do not use soap that contains bleaching agents or color enhancers as they could affect the color of your piece. We have also found powdered soaps to be abrasive and will therefore cause more fabric fade. Laundering your printed pieces inside out will help to preserve your prints and keep your blue fish looking like new much longer.

DRYING:
Most of the fabrics and styles in our collections may be dried on a low or tumble dry setting for about 15 to 20 minutes and then hung or laid flat to finish drying.
All garments are preshrunk.
If you hang your pieces outside to dry please be sure to dry them in the shade to avoid fading from the sun. We have found that at least a little time in the dryer enhances the softness of the pieces and will also eliminate the need to iron for most of us.

STEAMING
When necessary, we prefer to steam our styles to remove wrinkles. Steaming the garments gives a softer appearance. Ironing gives the styles a crisper look.

IRONING
If you choose to iron your pieces, we recommend that you iron inside out on a low temperature setting.

BUTTONS
We recommend wrapping our artisan made ceramic buttons in aluminum foil before washing and drying to prevent breakage.

How do you print your clothes?

Our clothes are block printed by hand, by artisans. Our print blocks are designed and hand-carved by us. Then, for every collection a new palette of color is developed.
Then the artisans of Blue Fish, each embodying our creative spirit for composition, begin to create. We have developed our own method of printing, which is based on hand block printing and includes elements of mono-and hand-painting.
