FYI - Bruised Berry & Deep Indigo Luon Bleeds

Recently posted on one of my lulu boards - the results of sweat-dampened Deep Indigo Wunder Unders and Bruised Berry Groove shorts (both made of luon) transferring color onto a pair of Cool Racerbacks. FWIW, neither was washed before wearing. If you have items in these colors, be sure to keep them away from lighter colored items when they are wet. If you haven't worn them yet, pre-wash to get the excess dye out.

C'mon lulu, get a handle on this problem! Send some people to your subcontractors and dig into the problem. You used to be able to make pigmented luon fabric that didn't bleed. Insist on your fabric being manufactured the old way / go back to your old subcontractors. You have a serious QA problem. What are you doing about it?
