  • Wait, so what is Tencel?"
    We're so glad you want to understand the materials you use. Tencel is an environmentally friendly fiber made from sustainably harvested trees which go through a scientific and magical process to become a soft and breathable fabric. We have a handy little introduction to Tencel fiber and its benefits here.
  • What are the benefits of organic cotton?
    Traditional cotton uses copious amounts of pesticides which are toxic to agricultural workers and their surrounding ecosystems. Organic cotton goes through a certification process to ensure no pesticides and harmful agrochemicals are used in the growing process. Additionally, since cotton is a natural fiber it is biodegradable at the end of its lifecycle. Learn more about organic cotton here.
  • Who makes your fabrics?
    We work with an environmentally conscious fabric mill and print house in Indonesia. They only manufacture natural fibers digitally printed with non-toxic ink. They share our value of giving back to the community and participate in a local program to plant trees by the Citarum River, which has been highly polluted by the local industry, including textile production. Finally, they maintain safe and comfortable working conditions for their employees and work to support local Indonesian designers and companies. You can learn more about them on their website here.
  • How should I wash my Kaleidoscope Studio fabrics?
    For happy and healthy fabrics, we recommend a gentle machine cycle in cool water with non-chlorinated detergent and dry on low heat, or better yet, hang-dry if you can. Washing your fabrics in cold water and hang-drying them not only makes their color last longer and the fabric wear down less, it also uses drastically less energy. If you take good care of your handmade pieces you will be able to treasure them for a long time.
  • Why don’t you sell your fabrics online?
    We adore our local fabric and sewing stores and want to support them! Also, dealing with shipping individual orders is logistically complicated and we would rather spend that time coming up with more cool designs.
