Spanish term or phrase: mediante reposo
No estoy segura de cómo traducir esta expresión

"Esta zona fue el área de teñido de los curtidos. Toda la planta está ocupada por pozos y pilas en los que se depositaban las pieles con el tinte de distintos colores. Una vez adquirían la tonalidad deseada ***mediante reposo***, las piezas debían ser secadas y quedaban preparadas para los acabados finales. Consta de una única planta, con una altura media de 4 metros y una superficie de 176 m2."

¿Alguna sugerencia?

¡Gracias!

Explanation:
After tanning, most leathers are first dyed. This is done by soaking the leather in a dye in big barrels or drums(such as ink). The dye is later fixed and any excess dye is rinsed to avoid it rubbing off on other items later.
