Due to the special Painters dyeing technique. which is exclusively used by us for yarns, the colour baths of the Painters colours vary frequently and surprisingly. The yarns and fabrics are dyed individually, each dyeing results in a different picture, every single piece is individual.
The embroidered areas show a wonderfully subtle and perpetual melange of Painters colors. no repeating pattern. This makes each project absolutely unique! All 40 colors harmonize uniquely with each other.
The illustration can also deviate considerably from the delivered product due to the mentioned dyeing technique and different screen outputs. The colour chart is only for general orientation about the basic colours contained in the respective colour.
You can find more information about hand dyeing in the Painters Secrets.

do not wash cold or lukewarm
⇒TIP: wash in the washing machine at 40°.
do not steam iron
Do not leave folded up when damp. Place the work spread out on a thick towel and dry as quickly as possible.
In case a thread bleeds: immediately rinse under cold running water (exceptionally the water must be cold), preferably with a hand shower. Repeat this process with water that slowly gets warmer until the dye is completely washed out. Rinse with a very gentle detergent. Shampoo or curd soap are most suitable for this.
INFO: As with all hand-dyed products, colour fastness cannot be guaranteed.

You may ask yourself, but who is Inge Meta... (color 130 - no link) I would like to tell you the story behind it, because it has so much to do with my life.
For once, I did not stick to a "well-known" artist, but to a "life artist". A person who has managed to live her life under somewhat difficult living conditions and at the same time to give something positive to many other people. Inge Meta is my mother, who overcame the premature and very sudden death of my father by painting watercolour pictures. Being a widow at 60 years of age may not sound unusual, but it left her with 2 children still living at home and a son still at university. My sister and I could only accompany her from afar, because we were both professionally tied to a place. Besides, after many illnesses and privations, it had finally come so far that my parents wanted and were able to treat themselves to something in life. Yes, life is sometimes difficult to understand!
This is the original image that inspired me to create the colour "IngeMeta".
To ensure that everything is correct, we also issued Inge Meta with a certificate that she had hung up for all to see with justifiable pride.
In 2015, in response to customer demand, we began to develop soft pastels that would complement our vibrant Painters Glory colours. Simply less colour... well, it's not quite that simple with our dyeing technique. And we wanted the pastels to be a bit different from pastel threads of other hand dyers.
We are satisfied with our result and, if we look at the popularity of the pastels, so are our customers... Of course we allow every other manufacturer and hand dyer a lot of sales ... but if you want to work with our Glorys and Pastels, you don't really need anything else...
The pastels are named after landscapes, cities, plants and animals. Depending on what came to mind.
