Cushion Anger

Can 5 years and one wash ruin a cloth completely?
The cushions were displayed in a mostly subdued light -- for 5 years, I concede --, and they were washed gently at 30° C. It was a surprise to see them again. It was not the years that did the bleaching job. It was one washing. I call this bad quality.
For comparism: A quilt of multi-origin cloth. Produced in the same year, displayed constantly.
In the process of making, 5 years ago

After washing yesterday, same procedure
There must be something wrong with the print quality of custom-made cloth.
