In order to provide you with easy care, we wash and dry the fabrics before we make the clothing.
As with all clothing, for exceptional long life of your garments, we recommend hand wash cold, (see below for machine wash and dry), gently press water out, dry flat for knits or line dry wovens.
Use a simple detergent with NO additives, perfumes, color fasteners or bleach.
No dryer sheets, no woolite, please.
These chemicals are hard on ALL fabric.
You can also safely machine wash and dry the garments this way:
- turn item inside out.
- put the garment into a lingerie bag.
- machine wash COLD, delicate cycle.
- take the garment out of the lingerie bag and tumble dry LOW. No dryer sheets.
Since dryers are hard on all fabrics, it's best to tumble dry for 10-15 minutes, then finish with line drying wovens - or drying flat for knits.
Occasionally we make clothing from absolutely gorgeous Indian saris or fabric pieces that have triple weavings. They hold up much better if they are hand washed in cold water, gently squeezed out (do not wring them) and then dried flat. Or you can dry clean them.
It will say in the garment description if this is needed.
Please, contact us if you have questions or call 512 470 2553.
