To ensure proper care for your textile, it is advised to wash it with cool water using a gentle machine or hand wash method. To safeguard the integrity of the natural dyes, use a pH-neutral liquid detergent. Additionally, it is recommended to wash the textile with similar colors to prevent any potential damage. Hang the textile to dry immediately in a shaded area or tumble dry it on medium heat. For optimal results, it is suggested to use mild liquid detergents with a pH no higher than 7, such as Ecos, Eucalan, Tru Earth (to be dissolved fully in water before adding fabric), or similar products.
Color may rub off during wash, we recommend washing separately.
