CARE INSTRUCTIONS

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS AND CARE

All of our items are HAND WASH ONLY. All of our fabrics are thoughtfully handmade from natural fibers.

COLOURFASTING

Suggested for bright colors. Before the first wash, dissolve 1 cup of table salt in a basin of cold water. Soak garment for approximately 2 hours. Rinse and hand-wash as follows:

HAND WASHING

Gently wash garment by hand in cold, sudsy water with like colors, using a bleach-free detergent. Rinse well. To remove excess water, gently squeeze or roll garment in an old towel and hang to dry. Smooth out any creases while the garment is still damp -– this will make ironing easy. 

THE MORE YOU WEAR IT, THE BETTER IT LOOKS & FEELS

All garments with a linen content will be a little scratchy at first. After a bit of wear and a couple of washes and love, you will see a huge difference in the softness of the fabric.

DO NOT MACHINE WASH

Washing machines, even machines with delicate and/or hand wash cycles, and dryers of any kind must not be used. Damaged seams, frayed edges or extreme shrinkage are obvious signs of machine use. Use washing machines at your own risk -- we will not assume responsibility for any garments in such condition.

IRONING (IF YOU WISH)

Iron garment inside out, using the steam setting on your iron. Crinkle fabrics must be ironed to retain original size or leave it as crinkled!

DRY CLEANING

Dry cleaning is an alternative to hand washing. Advise dry cleaners to use a gentle process, as is used for silk. The majority of our garments have coconut and horn buttons, which may be damaged by the regular dry cleaning process.

PASHMINA KNITS

A lightweight, delicate knit. Dry clean only. Store flat -- do not hang!

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND FABRIC SWATCHES

Please note that all of the items on this clearance website are sold AS IS. In some cases, garment colors may vary, even within collections.

ABOUT "CRÜSHING"

Garments made of lightweight cotton and linen, can be steamed or ironed for a fresh, crisp look, but can also be worn "crüshed", which is the look we prefer. "Crüshing" is a simple method that creates a crinkled texture and sculpted form -- perfect for travel and for those of you who don’t like to iron! Just simply take the bottom of the hem of the dress or skirtcrunched it with your hands to give it the crushing look!
