So this does not pertain to clothing items, but it is about fabric...
I want to make my own curtains. I have been looking everywhere, and I can not find anything that I like. I am extremely picky with these kinds of things. So one of the home design center people I spoke with suggested I go to the Garment district and buy my own fabric and either make them myself or have them made.
I have some questions/concerns:
Colorfastness of material. Since these will be hung in the direct sunlight, I dont want to spend good money on fabric that I love and have it fade in two weeks. I know that all fabric will fade over time, but looking for suggestions or what to ask for in this regard.
Dyeing of material. Tied to the concern above. I have found a potential white fabric that may suffice but I would want to dye it a very specific grey. So looking for suggestions on places to dye and what type of dye to avoid quick fading.
It is amazing that I have looked at a million places and grey curtains are almost non-existent.
