What materials does Inkodye work on?

Inkodye binds to any absorbent natural fiber such as cotton, linen, raw silk, jute, hemp, raw canvas, burlap, bamboo, muslin, wool and even raw leather, suede, untreated wood and unglazed ceramics.

For most applications we recommend untreated materials that can be rinsed and washed using hot water and textile detergent. This allows the light areas of the print to remain undeveloped.

Inkodye can also be used on cellulosic semi-synthetics such as modal, viscose and rayon. We do not recommend Inkodye for use on synthetic fibers such as polyester or nylon, however blends (e.g. 50% cotton and 50% polyester) may yield good results. When printing on blends Inkodye will adhere to the natural fibers and wash out of the synthetic, giving the final print a lighter shade of color than you would see on 100% natural fibers.

Note that Inkodye does not work on purely synthetic materials such as nylon, acrylic or polyester, and cannot be absorbed by non-fibrous materials such metal and glass.
