Bleeding madras is madras fabric, that is made by weaving together yarns that have been dyed using only vegetable dyes, and hence the colors of the fabric "bleed" with every wash, thereby creating new hues of colors every time.
This is a very desirable characteristic of the fabric. This was the original way that authentic Indian madras fabric was made in the 50's and 60's when it was first encountered by the Preppy set.
Atlantis has recreated the vintage magic of this traditional fabric. Our Bleeding madras is like a vintage heirloom, woven on handlooms only, and with yarns dyed only with vegetable colors.
