BEST CARE TIPS FOR YOUR HAND-BLOCK PRINTS
Our hand-block print designs are created using gentle eco dyes, on 100% organic cotton.

Delicate machine cycle or hand wash at no more than 30 degrees.
Use non-enzyme/non-biological washing powder or liquid.
Do not tumble dry.
Pull to shape and dry inside-out and away from strong light.
Strong coloured items should be washed separately, and may require 3 or more washes to remove excess dye.

BEST CARE TIPS FOR YOUR LINENS
Our 100% premium linen should last for years - with French seams for durability, the fabric will get softer and softer over time.

Use non-enzyme/non-biological washing powder or liquid.
Do not tumble dry.

Do not bleach.
Wash with similar colours.

BEST CARE TIPS FOR YOUR VINTAGE KANTHAS
