About the handwoven cotton fabric.
Cotton is a natural fibre; It is a light fabric that gives your skin a friendly and breathable experience, giving highest comfort.
Wash and care for handwoven cotton clothing:
- Our contemporary clothing can be washed by hand or put into a machine as well. We recommend washing the fabric at 30° Celsius, to keep the shape and size intact, prevent possible shrinkage and keep them looking their best.
- A mesh bag can be used for delicate items, which protects the clothes from snagging or twisting in harsh machine cycles.
- In the misfortune of a stain, use a small amount of stain remover to dab and soak the area before wash. We recommend the patch test on an inside seam to confirm that it doesn't affect the colour of the piece.
- Darker coloured and natural dyed pieces should also be hand washed separately in cold water.
- To dry the clothes, they can be hung under the shade while flipped inside out. However, we do not recommend wringing your clothes before drying them as it causes severe damage to the pieces.
- Do not harshly scrub while hand washing.
- Do not use bleach.
- We do not recommend using dryers for cotton fabrics as the heat from the tumble causes pieces to lose their size and shape, leading to shrinkage. Instead, leave them out to dry. This is also more eco-friendly.
About naturally dyed fabric:
Indigo, along with other natural dyes, are used in dresses that are entirely made using environmentally friendly resources and materials. They need to be treated with delicacy and care. As these dyes are all-natural, derived from pure sources, they do no damage to the environment. Indigo has healing properties to the skin and aid in keeping the body cool during summers.
Wash and care for naturally dyed clothes:
- Wash dyed clothes separately, using cold water and preferably a gentle pH-neutral soap.
- Clothes can be hung to dry, instead of using a machine dryer which ultimately uses more energy and electricity.
- Do not dry these clothes in direct sunlight as this often results in excessive colour fading.
- Fabric colour will tend to spread and bleed into the water. A small noticeable fade of colour may occur over time, which is natural and adds to the charm of the clothes.
- Indigo or other naturally dyed pieces of clothes should be preserved in the muslin bag provided. The muslin protects your garments from sunlight and fading.
