Keeping Color From Bleeding When Washing Clothing

I have a Kitenge dress that keeps running out its colours every time I wash it. It has two colours, i.e cream white and dark brown. The dark brown colour keeps running out turning the cream white fabric pinkish. What should I do to stop colour bleeding?

Probably not much you can do to prevent dye transfer from one section of your garment to the other.

Is there a care label somewhere in one of the garment seams? It may be that your garment should have been dry cleaned to preserve the unique colour, if so the label will either have printing stating 'Dry Clean Only', or it may have a symbol indicating the garment is meant to be dry cleaned.

A dry clean only garment is marked with a circle, there may be a letter inside the circle to tell the dry cleaner staff with chemicals to use.

The following link to international laundering symbols currently being used for clothing can be downloaded or printed for future use, mine is posted by the washing machine:
