We are exceptionally good at dyeing our own shoes, but please be advised:
Shoes and clutches are hand dyed. Realize hand work is an art form that will rarely be absolutely flawless.
Silk is a natural fiber that may absorb color with slight variations in tone.
Custom colors are mixed to match swatches as closely as possible. Realize identical match may not occur since our shoes are not the same fabric as the gown being matched.
Color variance occurs from changes in lighting, especially outdoor vs. indoor. Realize this is beyond anyone’s control. Unless told otherwise, we dye for indoor lighting.
Dyed shoes are not waterproof. Topical spray can repel water, but can’t entirely prevent dye bleed. Avoid stepping in water. If topical spray is requested, the shoes can never be redyed. Our ribbons are not dyeable. Visit a fabric or craft store to buy matching ribbon, cut 44 inch lengths and apply Fray Check or clear nail polish on the cut edges.
Stardust can be added to any dye order for a shimmery, sparkling finish. Unless told otherwise, Stardust is always added to our metallic colors: gold, silver, pewter and rose gold.
