How to Lighten Fabrics

We were asked how to lighten fabrics.

We would not advise any of our customers to do this themselves as the results are unpredictable.

Essentially though to lighten a fabric you have to bleach it. Some yarns and some dyes can be significantly affected by bleach others very little. Sunlight too has a bleaching effect and its effect depends on the degree of colour fastness of the fabric.

KOTHEA sells a hydorgen peroxide bleached linen. We have already made a few posts about that <here>. this bleaching is the most environemtnally way of bleaching fabrics during production. This bleaching is used mostly to remove the natural colour from linen.
