What is Black Fridye?

The only sale that doesn’t cost the earth.

By 2030, the fashion industry is projected to output 15% of all global carbon emissions2. Clearly this is incompatible with solving climate change, so we make it easy to love your existing clothes longer by over-dyeing them black – because the most sustainable clothes are already in your wardrobe.

FAQ's

Questions?
We've Got Answers.

What can I dye?

Any garment, from any brand in any colour. Yes, really!

Natural plant-based fibres work best like cotton, hemp or linen. Cellulosics like bamboo, Tencel or viscose also dye well as will any blend of natural fibres.

Patterns and/or stains should turn pure black, but there are no guarantees as it depends on exact composition and may still be visible after dyeing.

What won't dye?

Anything synthetic or protein-based will not dye - think polyester, lycra or elastane as well as wool, leather or fur.

Blended compositions are a bit of a gamble and may end up patchy due to the natural fibres absorbing the dye but not the petro fibres. That said, we've tested jeans made from a 98% Cotton / 2% Elastane blend and it worked perfectly, though higher percentages are not guaranteed.

Trims like buttons, zips and labels won't dye either and often stitching threads are polyester (which won't dye) even if the garment itself is natural (which will), but you can always go over said stitching in permanent marker.
