HOW DOES IT WORK? - Transforming your Rainbow Club ivory shoes, bag or shoe clips is straight forward. Firstly, choose your colour. You may have been inspired by a shade in a Rainbow Clubs colour directory (found at all key retailers) and have a specific colour reference, or you could have a swatch to match. Next complete the separate order form contained in this section (remembering to affix your colour swatch) and post your shoes to the address supplied on the order form.
Upon arrival, your shoes will be carefully inspected by one of our colour technicians to ensure the shoes are in good condition – remember that blemishes and imperfections can affect the dyeing process. If you want to breathe new life into a pair of pre‑loved Rainbow shoes, the team at Rainbow Club can guide you on the best colours to disguise signs of wear, just call them on +44 (0)1392 207030 for more specific advice.
Your shade is hand mixed by one of their colour experts, carefully blending up to 20 pigments to get a precise match. The dye is delicately applied by hand, ensuring trims, lining and any embellishments are considered. The shoes are then left to dry naturally, to achieve the best results, before being inspected and packaged ready for delivery back to you.
IT'S ALL IN THE DETAIL - The experts have been known to colour‑match some unusual items, but in their experience, fabric swatches and cotton reels are the best, however they will also accept dresses, bags and hats. Send in a swatch no smaller than 2” x 2” (5 cm x 5 cm). Any garments received at Rainbow Club are always kept in a safe place and sent back to you via recorded delivery with your dyed shoes and accessories.
Colours are individually mixed to match your colour swatch to daylight or artificial conditions. In their experience, the lighting can change how the eyes perceive the colour so it’s important you specify whether you want your product dyed to artificial or daylight conditions. When dyed to daylight conditions the colour will match to outside conditions and may appear green/blue inside. When being dyed to artificial conditions, they will match to inside conditions and may appear pink outside. If you're unsure please contact the team at Rainbow Club for advice.
All dyed shoes and accessories will be spray protected before being dispatched to you. The team use environmentally friendly water‑based dyes and a market leading protector, which will offer a high resistance to moisture, keeping your shoes in beautiful condition but will not make them 100% waterproof.
