about our color - garment dye
Garment dye is the process that makes Fresh Produce clothing look and feel sun washed and beach worn. We sew up the style and then dip it in 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! Color variances and/or fading are normal. All of our colors are either reactive, pigment or optically dyed. Reactive dye is infused through and into the fiber of the fabric, offering a consistent, flat look. Pigment dye (such as in our Peri, Flamingo and Sunkissed colors) is a surface dye that creates high/low coloring and variation, giving a casual, worn look. White is the only color dyed optically which increases the brightness of our whites.
wash & care - keep your colors bright
At Fresh Produce we're all about keeping it easy. Unless otherwise noted in the description, all of our products can be machine washed in cold and tumble dried on low. We recommend our garment-dyed pieces be washed separately and inside out before wearing. Please avoid contact with light colored fabrics and upholstery as there might be some color rub. Do not use detergent bleaches, stain removers, or fabric softeners. For stains, we recommend using a mild dishwashing detergent (Hint! DAWN) directly on stains, let sit for 15-30 minutes, then wash as usual.

Perfect for hot summers and tropical climates
I love Fresh Produce dresses in 100% cotton but for years now it has been very difficult to find any style that wasn't straight up and down -- not a good cut for mature pear-shaped women. A couple of dresses that I bought 15-20 years ago were finally giving out and had little holes all over them. My husband even remarked that they were falling apart. Now that I live in Hawaii, I really need cool light weight dresses that look decent for everyday wear around the house and running out to do chores. A click-through picture of one of these popped up while searching on the web and I ordered a couple praying they would fit. Yes they do and they do look good in that simple, beachy style. So I ordered six more of them. I figured I will never find a style like this again and they are kind of the equivalent of a guy's tank top (which my husband bought six of when we moved here). While some may wish they were heavier like older generation Fresh Produce cotton dresses, I actually prefer the lighter weight cotton of these dresses because they are cool. One problem: they are not consistent in sizing across all colors. Some are looser and longer. Look at the pictures of the models in the pictures and you will see a similar difference in how they fit -- loose and long or short and more fitted. Most of mine are looser but a couple of my colors are a full inch or two shorter and a bit more fitted. I can still wear the more fitted ones but I would prefer the looser style for cooler comfort. I bought size medium and I am about 150 lbs. and 5'5". I was able to utilize sales discounts to purchase most of the dresses. Otherwise I would say they are a bit overpriced. But then again, there is nothing else out there that works like these so they are worth it for me. I now have a wardrobe for the next ten years.
Best summer dress!
I have been looking high and low all summer for the perfect dress and I'm so happy I finally found it! It's comfortable and fits perfectly - flattering enough to be worn at night as well as during the day. It's been so hard to find a solid black cotton summer dress like this – I've looked everywhere! I'm going to buy it in other colors as well!
