HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR TEXTILES

WALL HANGINGS

 

Wall Hangings benefit from a gentle, yearly dose of fresh air, either outdoors or near an open window.

 

To air, hang in a well-ventilated area for a few hours before returning to your preferred location.

 

 

 

WEARABLES & ACCESSORIES

 

Wearables & Accessories need to be washed occasionally. Though if it's a variety of wool, bamboo, or hemp, it will benefit from its naturally-antibacterial nature and will require washing less often.

 

Instructions for Hand WovensHand-Dye Care follow.  Please look at the fiber contents of your piece and proceed.

 

 

 

HANDWOVENS

 

In order to best care for your Handwovens, an occasional gentle hand washing with a delicate soap & cold water is best.

 

1. Gently hand wash in cold water. Use delicate soap, or if Wool, wool-safe soap.

 

2. Gently squeeze out excess water.

 

3. Lay flat and roll up in a large towel.

 

4. Remove from towel. Lay flat to dry.

 

5. When nearly dry, optionally follow Pressing Care below for a crisper look.

 

 

HAND-DYED

 

In order to best care for your Hand-Dyed Textiles, always wash separately.

Color bleed can continue after the dye process is complete, though generally minimal.

 

Dyes are handwash-safe and fade-resistant, though all dyes fade with extended durations in direct sunlight &/or washing with harsh cleansers.

 

An occasional gentle hand washing with a delicate soap and cold water is perfect. Lay flat to dry. Then, follow Pressing Care, as needed, if a crisper look is preferred.

 

 

PRESSING CARE

 

Many textiles look great as-is, freshly laundered, but for those that are enhanced with Pressing, follow the care instructions below.

 

First, determine what fiber your textile includes.

 

If your piece contains: SILK or WOOL (Merino, Cashmere, Mohair, Alpaca, Charmeuse, Habotai, etc.), use low to medium heat, with NO steam.

* Additionally, for Silk, iron on the backside of the natural, shiny finish.

 

If your piece contains: LINEN, RAYON, COTTON or VISCOSE, use medium to high heat, with medium to full steam.

 

Always use a Pressing Cloth to protect your textile while using a hot iron.

 

* NOTE: All pieces are ready to hang and/or wear upon arrival. Wearables have been hand washed and pressed before shipping.
