Garment Dye :  
The process that makes Fresh Produce clothing look and feel sun washed and beach worn. We sew up the style and dip it in a big vat of Fresh Produce color. The process requires heat so all of our garment dyed clothing is pre-shrunk, soft and fabulous! (This is also why size specifications can be slightly different.) We love how garment dye brings out the individual personality of each garment, just like our customers, no two are exactly alike!
